Sundaram Auto Components conferred with TPM Excellence Award for its Mysuru Plant

Thursday, February 03, 2022

Sundaram Auto Components Limited (SACL), a TVS Group Company and one of India's leading plastic auto component manufacturers has been recognised in the category, 'Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Excellence Award'- presented by Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) for its Mysuru plant. With this award, SACL joins the elite list of other 24 companies globally and six within India to be conferred this award.

JIPM's TPM award is globally coveted and is a testimony to SACL's commitment to improving the quality of its products and production efficiency by preventing equipment breakdowns, enhancing the quality of the equipment, and standardising the equipment at its Mysuru plant. With the TVS Group being a torchbearer of TQM and TPM implementation in India, it was only natural for its group company SACL to follow suit.

The journey started at its Mysuru plant in August 2016 with the aim to improve customer satisfaction through on-time delivery with the best quality levels at minimum cost. As a result, the plant's overall equipment efficiency improved by 20 per cent between 2016 and 2021, 50 per cent reduction in lead time to service the customers, reducing line defects by 33 per cent. All of this resulted in a considerable reduction in manufacturing costs, which allowed the company to sustain itself in an ever-increasing competitive market. This exercise massively improved the morale of the people working in the plant.
