Production Units in India are Best in the World, Say Car Manufacturers

Multinational automotive plantsin India rank among the top, across the world, in terms of their productivity and quality. Top auto MNCs like Hyundai, Toyota andSuzukirank their Indian production facilities right on top of their global pecking order. Despite fighting it out with factories in much larger markets - including the US and China - some of these plants fare better cranking out cars at upwards of 98-99% efficiency.

TakeHyundaiMotor India (HMI) which has two plants in its Sriperumbudur facility near Chennai. The newer, second plant actually ranks number one in terms of productivity and quality according to Bo Shin Seo, CEO& MD, Hyundai Motor India (HMI). "Hyundai has plants in China, Russia, Brazil, the US (Alabama), Turkey and the Czech Republic and in terms of operational average productivity ratio we are number one," he added. HMI's second plant makes two models and routinely hits an average productivity ratio of upwards of 99.7%. This means there will be an increase in job opportunities for Industrial Engineers (Workstation Design).
