Car manufacturer Honda Siel Cars India declared on Tuesday that it will export engine components to Japan from October.
“This export programme is due to a shortage of Japanese supply”, Honda Siel president and Chief Executive Masahiro Takedagawa remarked on the sidelines of a conference.
The car company will export crankshaft and the connecting rod manufactured at its Tapukara plant in Rajasthan. Honda Siel has another factory at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh.“ Honda Siel has bagged the export order due to a rapid increase in the sale of small cars in Japan, which has led to a capacity constraint at Honda facilities for these engine components”, Takedagawa said.
The company will produce 54,000 sets of the crankshafts and connecting rods for export over six months. The exports will help integrate Honda Siel Cars India with the Japanese company’s pan-Asia supply chain network.
Honda Siel has unveiled the new 2010 Honda Civic on Tuesday with a new look and loaded the sedan with many new features.
