Ashok Leyland has opened a new assembly plant in Bangladesh, as it is aiming to make further inroads into the neighboring country. Built over a period of 15 months in Dhaka, the plant is spread over an area of 37 acres and is a joint collaboration between Ashok Leyland and IFAD Autos, Bangladesh.
With the inauguration of this new plant, together with the robust presence of IFAD Autos, the company expects to make significant inroads into this region. The plant has a capacity to roll out 600-800 vehicles each month. It will also be facilitated with a bodybuilding and vehicle testing facility, which will become functional in the next two years.
Ashok Leyland, the Hinduja Group flagship company in India, is engaged in the manufacturing of commercial vehicles and related components. The company’s products include buses, trucks, engines, defense and special vehicles.
