Kir­loskar Broth­ers Limited (KBL) an­nounced that its all-women Coim­bat­ore plant has set an­other bench­mark and bagged a pres­ti­gious award by the Limca Book of Records for its project ‘Mahila Mis­sion 20’. The project has achieved a mile­stone of as­sem­bling a pump in a rare feat time of 17.25 sec­onds, mak­ing it a na­tional record. The sil­ver ju­bilee of the Limca Book of Records ded­i­cated to the cause of Em­pow­er­ing Women hon­ored Dr R.V. Ra­jku­mar with the recog­ni­tion on be­half of the en­tire fe­male work­force of Kir­loskar Broth­ers Limited, Coim­bat­ore plant. The award was of­fered in the pres­ence of nu­mer­ous dig­ni­taries, lead­ers, de­ci­sion mak­ers and bu­reau­crats from var­i­ous par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies.

Mr San­jay Kir­loskar, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Kir­loskar Broth­ers said, “It is a proud mo­ment for us to be recog­nised for our ac­com­plish­ment to­wards women em­pow­er­ment. Our all-women Coim­bat­ore plant has re­ceived many sig­nif­i­cant awards and this recog­ni­tion fur­ther reaf­firms the abil­i­ties of our fe­male em­ploy­ees.” He fur­ther adds, “With the ded­i­ca­tion of our as­so­ciates, we have suc­cess­fully re­duced the as­sem­bly time from 60 sec­onds to a record break­ing 20 sec­onds; thereby in­creas­ing the plant pro­duc­tion to 34000 pumps per line per month. I am ex­tremely overwhelmed to have such a com­mit­ted women work­force that set­tles for noth­ing but the best.” The Limca Book of Records award is an ac­knowl­edge­ment to the ef­forts made by KBL’s all women Coim­bat­ore plant that was es­tab­lished in 2011.
