Production Gathers Momentum at Dunlop India as New Workers Hired
Production facilities at Dunlop India’s Sahaganj plant have been operating seven days a week since October 14, evidence the company is on its way to fulfilling recently announced plans to increase production to 90 tonnes per day by the end of October. “We would like to see Dunlop operating 24 hours a day and seven days a week,” said Dunlop India chairman Pawan Ruia. “This is a step towards making the Sahaganj unit a cost-effective, high quality manufacturer of tyres and industrial products. Very soon, Sahaganj will surpass all its previous records in production and productivity.”
On October 16 the tyremaker also signed on 1,202 new permanent employees for the facility. The new inductees previously worked for the company and were on the books when the Chhabria controlled Jumbo group closed the factory. Taking casual staff into account, the company’s Sahaganj unit now employs more than 1,600 workers.
