In a significant step for women in the manufacturing industry, Hinduja Group’s company, Ashok Leyland, launched a new ‘All Women production Line’ with 100 per cent women employees at the Hosur plant. The country’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer took the step to promote women empowerment and attract more women to the manufacturing industry. The line has 80 women employees at the Hosur plant in Tamil Nadu.

The company says that they have made the effort to build a more diverse workforce. The company invested significantly to train and upskill its women employees in core manufacturing skills and they will be responsible for the entire production of the new engine line.

Shenu Agarwal, Managing Director and CEO, Ashok Leyland said, “At Ashok Leyland, diversity and inclusion have always been a priority, and we have been providing equal opportunities irrespective of gender and ethnicity. Giving women these opportunities enhance not only their lives but also the lives of their families and the community. This initiative is in line with our brand philosophy of “Koi Manzil Door Nahin”, as we aim to upskill and generate employment for these women and bring alive their dreams. At Ashok Leyland, we recognise the importance of establishing a better gender balance, and initiatives like this create a more inclusive ecosystem.”
