Suzuki Motorcycle’s project to ramp up production gets delayed by up to 18 months

Suzuki Motorcycle India (SMIPL), the wholly-owned two-wheeler arm of Japan’s Suzuki Motor Corporation, is delaying its project to ramp up production to 1 million units per annum by up to one-and-a-half years because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The company, however, is optimistic that its sales in the domestic market this fiscal will be slightly better than last fiscal when sales had dropped by 23.90 per cent compared to 2019-20. SMIPL, which had shut its plant for three weeks from 28 April due to oxygen supply constraints, is now coordinating with group firm Maruti Suzuki to address the issue, particularly those of its critical vendors, having resumed production from 17 May 2021.
