While Manesar Plant of Maruti Suzuki India was in the news for all wrong reasons these past few months, the company has finally come out of troubled times and is well on their way to functioning at full strength. The company declared that they expect to have a full employee workforce by the end of September as they take on new workers in place of those laid off due to disciplinary constraints.
The company is in the process of taking on contract and permanent workers and should complete procedure in the coming 10 days. Hopefully then, by the end of the month, operations at the plant will begin in right earnest.
Following violence at the Manesar Plant on July 18, the company had fired 500 permanent workers and had refused to take back workers who were directly responsible for the mayhem and arson which cost the company the life of a senior official besides leaving 100 injured. In the coming few days the plant is expected to reach full production capacity in a single shift which will stand at 700 units which was what the company was producing prior to July 18th. Swift, A-Star, Dzire and SX4 are being produced at the Manesar plant and the company hopes to make do their losses suffered during the period of lockout by the end of October.
