With the dynamics of competition in the bus segment taking a newer twist in the wake of entry of organised players, commercial vehicle maker Ashok Leyland is gearing up to step up its fully-built buses' component to a higher level progressively.

Addressing a press conference after inaugurating the state-of-the-art Viralimalai facility of Irizar-TVS Limited, a three-way equal joint venture between TVS Sons, Ashok Leyland and Irizar of Spain, R. Seshasayee, Managing Director of Ashok Leyland, said 30 per cent of the buses sold by the company were built by itself at the moment. Ashok Leyland was keen to increase this to 90 per cent over the next three years. During the next financial year, the company planned to take it up to 60 per cent.

“We see the demand for buses, particularly for luxury segment, grow tremendously in India over the years due to Union Government's JNNRUM (Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission) scheme, better road infrastructure and demand for seamless logistics connectivity across the country,” Mr. Seshasaye said.

“With engineering capability, quality and brand equity, Ashok Leyland has decided to increase the number of fully-built buses,” he added. He said that the Government should continue with the JNNRUM scheme, which helped to meet the seamless road connectivity.

The new facility has come up with an initial investment of Rs. 30 crore with a built-up area of two lakh sq. ft. The plant has three production lines and seven paint booths with a capacity to produce 150 coaches a month.

The company also launched the indigenously designed iT09.

The joint venture company has now two manufacturing facilities — one each at Pudukottai and Viralimalai. The capacity of the company has gone up from 900 coaches to 2,200 annually. Irizar-TVS will be offering newer buses to the Indian market which, according to Mr. Seshasayee, is largely customer-centric and driven by the preferences of customers.

Irizar-TVS buses go to certain parts of Africa and the Middle East via Ashok Leyland. Total sales of Irizar-TVS clocked 600 units so far in 2009-10. In 2007-08, sales totalled 1,100 coaches and 1,000 units in the two previous years.

“This facility allows us to manufacture multi-variant products under a single roof. Customers can choose the type of chassis for their coaches,” he added. Around 70-75 per cent of the coaches built by the joint venture company now was absorbed by Ashok Leyland. The balance was sold to other private players.

R. Dinesh, Director, Irizar-TVS, said much of the supplies to Ashok Leyland went to the export market.

Rane valves for Kappa engines of Hyundai Motor

Rane Engine Valve Ltd. (REVL) strengthened its market leadership further in the engine valves segment by commissioning its dedicated line for manufacturing valves for Kappa engines of Hyundai Motor India Ltd., (HMIL) at its Viralimalai plant near here on Friday.

J.J. Shin, Senior Executive Director (Procurement and Supply), HMIL, officially inaugurated the new line that ramps up REVL's manufacturing capacity to supply valves for 400 Kappa engines a day, in the presence of the Chairman of Rane Group L. Ganesh, and senior executives of both companies. The REVL had already made an additional investment to increase the capacity of the new line further to cater to the requirements of 550 Kappa engines a day.

Terming the Rane Group's decision to start the exclusive line as strategic and timely, Mr. Shin said that the capacity addition was attuned to the more demanding customer expectations. The automobile market was growing rapidly and competition was getting tougher.

“This addition along with the output from the facility at the Alandur plant in Chennai should be adequate to service HMIL's valve requirements in the foreseeable future,” Mr. Ganesh said, expressing keenness of the Rane Group to supply parts from its other companies as well to HMIL.

He said, a significant part of the group's future investments in South India would be in Tiruchi.

In an informal chat with reporters later, Mr. Ganesh said that a new plant of Rane TRW Steering Systems would be inaugurated in Uttarakhand during the first week of March. It will be started initially with a small capacity to cater to the requirements of Ashok Leyland.

The Rane Group will shortly add one more line to supply engine valves for Volkswagen's production unit at Brazil. “Supply of parts to Volvo may happen in future. We are in discussion,” Mr. Ganesh said, responding to a query.

Its good time for power industries. Lot of investment is going to be made in this field.

Our CII and local politician need to work to bring few of these investments to trichy. For sure big players like L&T dont have the capacity. They will built new units. We need to utilize these oppurtunities and bring it to trichy.

I request someone to take this to CII and local politician. Apart from power industry, we can expect other industries to start in trichy because they will be put either in chennai or cbe or mdu or other southern region.
