7 process shops. 5 assembly lines. Around 1,700 robots. 3 stages of inspection. Takes just 12 hours to make one car. And we make one car every 12 seconds. In fact, one more is ready just as you finish reading this line.
It is manufacturing excellence quite at another level. The magnitude becomes clear when you realise that Kaizen, our philosophy of continuous improvement, has created a 'zero-compromise' quality culture not just for one car or two, but for over 1 million cars we turn out every year.
Maruti Suzuki vehicles are made through 'Green Manufacturing' processes. All our power plants use natural gas. We discharge Zero waste outside factory premises. In FY 2011-12, a total of 12,34,767 cubic meters water was recycled and reused.
Just a few more reasons why there are millions of delighted Indians driving our cars, with complete peace of mind.
This is where it all began, where the first Maruti 800 rolled out. One that Mr. Harpal Singh drives to date. A shining example of our manufacturing and product quality.
