Daimler confirms non-production days in its factory in Sept, Oct
Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) which recently showcased its readiness to transition to the new emission norms kicking in from April 2020, has also notified to its employees of six non-working days in this month and next month.
In a statement issued by the company on Friday, it said DICV will have three non-production days in September and 3 non-production days in October. Permanent staff have been granted additional vacation days to help compensate. “We are monitoring the situation and adjusting our production line depending on demand.”
Earlier this month, DICV said it had sold over 1.4 mn vehicles using the Euro-VI technology. The German MNC had said it has invested around Rs 500 cr to localise their Euro-VI technology for India, completing 2 mn km of testing, developing new facilities and over 1,000 new parts, and achieving localisation rate above 80% on its products. The transition to BS-VI opens up more opportunities to export fully-built vehicles, engines and parts to Mexico, Chile and Brazil that will soon migrate to similar emission norms. This strengthens India’s position as a global production network for Daimler Trucks and Buses, DICV MD and CEO Satyakam Arya had said.
