The joint-venture company will cater to two leading players

Sujan CooperStandard (SCS), a joint venture between the Sujan Group and CooperStandard of the US, has diversified into supply of parts to commercial vehicles, with India’s two leading players giving it the mandate.

While the press release has not quite specified their names, these clearly pertain to Tata Motors and Ashok Leyland, which jointly account for a lion’s share of the CV space. SCS will supply engine mounts and chassis parts for BS VI-compatible vehicles made by the two manufacturers. “Our nomination by India’s top two CV manufacturers is a matter of pride for us, and is in line with our strategic growth plan for 2018-2022. Our customer-centric approach has enabled us to obtain these prestigious business,” says Vijay Sujan, Chief Executive Officer, SCS.

Rajesh Sharma, Assistant Vice-President, CV Business, says SCS was able to achieve cost competitiveness through design optimisation, which helped meet its clients’ expectations.

“We are supplying our anti-vibration systems from our state-of-the-art facilities at Pune and Chennai where we have achieved world-class operational excellences,” adds Dinesh Pawar, Chief Operating Officer, SCS. SCS’ existing customer base includes Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, Ford India, Renault-Nissan and a host of Tier 1 ancillary suppliers. Its products have been used in SUVs, LCVs and passenger vehicles. The Sujan Group has another JV in India with CooperStandard, Polyrub CooperStandard, for fluid transfer systems. Its customer base includes BMW, Lander UK, FCA India, Tata Motors, Force Motors and Mobius Motors, an Africa-based SUV manufacturer.
