Zero production following lockout at the production facilities has reportedly resulted in loss of over Rs 1,500 crore.
Premises at Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant have been wearing a deserted look for the last couple of weeks following violent clashes that led to the loss of life and property. However, according to company officials, the carmaker is reportedly looking to resume production at the plant by next week.
The Manesar facility consists of two production lines producing about 1,900 cars a day, and according to the company officials, the carmaker will first resume work at Plant B, which currently churns out the Swift and the Swift Dzire – two of Maruti’s most popular models on sale today. The probable reason why production at Plant B will resume first is to clear the backlog of Swift and the Dzire, which now have gone well past the 1 lakh mark.
“We hope to make an announcement on resuming production at Manesar on Monday (August 13). Component vendors will have to be informed to start supplies, so we will need a week to 10 days from Monday to start operations,” a company official said.
