Slowdown effect: Bosch, Tata Motors to suspend work at some units

Inventory pile-up and sluggish market demand has forced German-controlled Bosch Ltd to temporarily shutdown operations this week at two of its production units in India. Bosch on Wednesday said it will suspend operations at its Bangalore and Jaipur plants to avoid inventory build-up.

In a communiqué to the BSE it stated that “… to adjust production to meet the demand for products and to avoid unnecessary build-up of inventory,” Bosch proposed to suspend the manufacturing operations at its Jaipur plant from June 28 to June 30 and at the Bangalore plant from June 29 to June 30.

This is first stoppage of work at its Bangalore plant since a 16-day strike last year between September 28 and October 13. The Rs 7,929.5-crore auto-parts maker has five plants in India.

PTI reports: Production will be halted at Tata Motors’ Jamshedpur plant for three days from Thursday because of the slowdown. It had earlier this month stopped production of commercial vehicles at Pune for three days.

GM, Fiat, Toyota too hit

General Motors India has also stated it is constantly adjusting demand and production at its two facilities — Halol in Gujarat and the Talegaon in Maharashtra. Fiat India is considering shutting down plant for a few days next month. Toyota Kirloskar Motor too has rationalised production of its petrol cars due to low demand.
