Apollo Tyres Partners With Truck Manufacturer To Provide Healthcare Facilities

Apollo Tyres and Ashok Leyland have formed a partnership to provide healthcare facilities to the trucking community in Namakkal. A prominent transhipment hub in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The Healthcare centre, which will be run by Apollo Tyres, is located at Ashok Leyland’s Driver Training Institute at Namakkal. The foundation was inaugurated by Anuj Kathuria, Chief Operating Officer and Balachandar NV, President, HR, Communication and CSR of Ashok Leyland; along with Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Sunam Sarkar, President and Chief Business Officer, Apollo Tyres.

The centre for healthcare aims to serve a daily floating population of 12,500 drivers and generate awareness on HIV-AIDS and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among truckers and the surrounding communities. The centre is said to be staffed by qualified doctors, counsellors and paramedics.

This new facility has been created over a flooring area of 2500 sq.ft and is equipped with adequate diagnostic equipment, exclusively for health education of the driving community within the training centre. The charges for registration are set at Rs 20 and the drivers will be able to avail medical facilities at any of the 31 Apollo Tyres Healthcare Centres across India after registration.

Ashok Leyland has been encouraging good driving practices amongst the truck drivers since 1994 with the establishment of their Driver Training Institutes across different parts of the country. Currently, the company runs 11 such successful institutes, serving a total of cumulatively 1,482,462 drivers, awaring them of the harmful transmitted diseases. Whereas, Apollo Tyres launched its healthcare initiative in 2000 for a similar initiative as Ashok Leyland.

The Tyre manufacturer and the second-largest commercial vehicle OEM of India have formed this alliance to not only provide medical benefits but also to educate the drivers for a better life beyond driving.
