New Delhi: India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer Hero MotoCorp Ltd plans to restart plant operations with a staggered manner from Monday, May 17, the company said in a regulatory filing on Friday.
“The company is gearing up towards a gradual resumption of operations by starting single shift production at three of its plants – Gurugram and Dharuhera in Haryana and at Haridwar – from Monday, May 17,” it said.
Hero MotoCorp said that it continues to monitor the situation closely and the remaining manufacturing plants and other facilities would also open up gradually.
“Strict safety and hygiene protocols are in place at all plant locations and offices in preparation for the gradual resumption of operations,” it added.
The company said that the three plants would increasingly focus on producing for the export markets, besides catering to the domestic requirements.
“In addition to producing for the domestic market in India, these plants will also have enhanced focus on catering to the Global Business (GB) markets across the world,” it said.
The company had last month announced that it would shutdown its plants halting manufacturing activities from April 22 to May 2. It later extended the shutdown to May 16.
Meanwhile, the company said that more than 90% of employees above the age of 45 years have already been vaccinated under its ongoing corporate vaccination drive.
