Gurgaon labour trouble affects supplies to auto majors

Recent labour unrest in factories of auto component makers at Gurgaon is affecting vehicle manufacturers. The strikes by workers at Rico Industries, Sunbeam and other smaller companies at Gurgaon and Manesar had an impact on supplies to auto majors like Hero Honda and Maruti Suzuki India.
“The frequent labour issues in the Gurgaon and Manesar belt is a matter of concern. The ongoing problems at some of our suppliers’ plants have affected our operations,” said a Hero Honda spokesperson.
Rico Auto, which manufactures components such as fuel system parts, turbine housings, crank cases, cylinder head covers and cylinder blocks and supplies to most of the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), suffered labour strike in October at its Gurgaon plant.
A similar strike at Sunbeam also had disturbed supplies to OEMs. “Our production was marginally impacted, but with our multi-vendor supply sourcing the production is now normal. Alternate supply sources have helped us in the current situation and we are able to produce at full capacity,” remarked a Maruti Suzuki India spokesperson.
