Toyota Kirloskar Motor ramps-up production with third shift operations

Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), has announced the commencement of three-shift operations at its manufacturing facility in Bidadi from the month of May, 2023 backed by the rising demand for its existing portfolio of products and its new launches in 2022.  Three shift operations commencement is set to boost the plant’s production output by over 30% and strategically meet the strong booking numbers for its entire range of product portfolio in the country. 

Autocar Professional had previously reported that the company would expand plant output by 20 to 30% and add a third shift from May 2023.

The company will generate additional employment of close to 25% including that of increased intake from Toyota Technical Training Institute (TTTI), which is the company’s existing skill technical education facility in its Bidadi plant, with a focus on scaling-up students’ skill levels on advanced technology by Toyota’s globally certified expert trainers. Last year, TKM also undertook a major expansion of TTTI with capacity going up from 200 to 1,200 students (academically, batch-wise). TKM currently has a 6000-member strong team, including production and non-production staff.

Sudeep Dalvi, Senior Vice President and Chief Communication Officer, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said that they would work with the company’s customer-first philosophy across all business decisions, one of which is the start of the third shift operation.
