Maxxis Tyres Plant In­au­gu­rated

Bike India - - IGNITION -

MAXXIS TYRES, “THE LARGEST TWO-WHEELER TYRE MAN­U­FAC­TURER IN the world”, have es­tab­lished their fa­cil­ity in Sanand, Gu­jarat. Spread over an area of 106 acres and the re­sult of an out­lay of nearly Rs 2,650 crore, this plant will ini­tially pro­duce 20,000 tyres and 40,000 tubes per day.

Maxxis hope to cap­ture 15 per cent of the tyre mar­ket share in In­dia fol­low­ing the com­mis­sion­ing of this plant, which was of­fi­cially in­au­gu­rated by Gu­jarat Chief Min­is­ter Vi­jay Ru­pani in the pres­ence of Tsai-Jen Lo, Chair­man, Maxxis Group; Cheng-Yao Liao, Pres­i­dent, Maxxis In­dia; and Jia-Ciao Liou (Gary), Spokesper­son, Maxxis In­dia.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Liao said, ‘We are fully com­mit­ted to the gov­ern­ment’s “Make-in-In­dia” ini­tia­tive and our in­tent is to “Make in In­dia” for the world. We mon­i­tored the mar­ket for over two decades and then de­vised the strat­egy for en­ter­ing In­dia. The man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Sanand is only the first step of Maxxis’s full range ap­pear­ance in the coun­try.’

Maxxis hope to ex­pand their man­power from 600 to 2,000 em­ploy­ees in the next five years, thus sig­ni­fy­ing that they are quite se­ri­ous about their pres­ence in the In­dian mar­ket.
