Elgi Equipments has introduced assembly lines with a 100 per cent female workforce at the ELGi Air Center in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. Twenty young women are managing operations at the airend assembly line, encapsulated airend assembly line, and the ELGi new generation compressor top block assembly line, delivering over 150 airends and top blocks daily.

Moreover, a dedicated occupational health center ensures immediate support whenever needed to prioritize their well-being, further promoting a safe and comfortable working environment.
