COVID-19 Crisis: BKT Partially Resumes Production At Indian Plants

Indian off-highway tyre maker Balakrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has partially restarted tyre production at all its factories, following dialogues and approval by central and state government.

The Indian group has also restarted supply and delivery to the OEM and aftermarket channels, a BKT statement said 29 April.

BKT has four tyre production plants in Aurangabad, Maharashtra; Bhiwadi and Chopanki, Rajasthan; and Bhuj, Gujarat, where it also runs a carbon black manufacturing unit. The tyre maker also operates a tyre moulds production unit in Dombivali, near Mumbai.

The speciality tyre manufacturer has implemented several health and safety procedures, including social distancing between workers, body temperature monitoring, re-organization of shifts, construction of accommodation for workers, medical checks for all employees and more.

The headquarters in Mumbai have been closed since the government adopted the lockdown. However, customer service and sales support have always been operational using smart working.

Factories have commenced their operation tentatively following a directive issued by the central and state governments on the exemptions from lockdown that is in effect from April 20, 2020.

Homegrown tyre major Apollo Tyres also partially commenced manufacturing operations at its Perambra plant in Kerala from April 22.
