SSWL is increasing its production capacity by 1.5Mn wheels annually to cater to increasing demand from OEMs. The total investment involved will be around Rs 50 Mn and the new capacity will start yielding production by April 2015.
The combined capacity post this expansion will go to 18.1Mn wheels across three plants of SSWL. This expansion is coming at the mother plant in Dappar which is running at peak capacity of 85%. The increased presence in passenger car segment and future business allocations to SSWL is demanding this expansion to address the order book for next financial year.
