Ford India completes 1,00,000th engine
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Ford India has achieved an important marker in its Chennai plant. The company announced that yesterday it had rolled out its 1,00,000th engine from its manufacturing plant at Chennai – a feat that was achieved in just 14 months after the engine plant was erected.
Ford India President and Managing Director, Michael Boneham –
This world-class manufacturing facility reinforces our intent and commitment to compete with great products and powertrains in all segments.
The engine plant has been set up as part of Ford’s $500-million investment at the Maraimalai Nagar site with a capacity to produce 2,50,000 engines per year to meet the demands of the Indian market. It exports one-third of the engines produced to South Africa and Thailand
The company is certain that the next 1,00,000 units will be manufactured at a much faster pace.
