Bajaj Auto Has Restarted Operations In Both Chakan And Aurangabad Factories To Meet Export Demands.
Bajaj Auto had previously stopped production in it’s factory in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. But in order to fulfill the pending export orders of around Rs 1,000 crores they had to restart operations. They were able to do this after Government Of Maharashtra allowed around 431 companies in Aurangabad to operate amid the lockdown but with some restrictions and rules in place.
Bajaj Auto has been allowed to use around 850 workers inside their factory. Bajaj exports motorcycles in CKD (Completely Knocked Down) form to many countries in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Update (May 2020): Bajaj has now also restarted operations in it’s factory in Chakan, Pune. The factory is responsible with the production of the following motorcycle brands KTM, Husqvarna and Dominar. Bajaj is aiming to complete pending export orders and is depending on parts vendors to provide them with parts at this time of economic uncertainty, they will try to manufacture motorcycles with whatever inventory they have.
But to ensure uninterrupted production Bajaj officials are keeping an close eye on the situation and are working towards gradually ramping up production and restoring the supply chain.
