End-to-end production of this MG Hector was undertaken by the crew. This included panel-pressing, paint job, welding and even the production tests. MG Motor aims to achieve 50% gender diversity in its organisation in future and pave the way for a balanced workforce.
MG Motor India has manufactured its 50,000th Hector with an all-women crew in Gujarat’s Vadodara. Women-only teams were involved in panel-pressing of sheet metal and welding to painting jobs as well as carrying out post-production test runs.
MG said the initiative has created a new benchmark while celebrating `Diversity’ – one of the core pillars of the automaker – as women led the end-to-end production.
The automaker aims to achieve 50% gender diversity in its organisation in future and pave the way for a balanced workforce.
MG Motor India has its manufacturing facility in Gujarat’s Halol (Panchmahal district) which comprises a 33% share of women in its workforce across all business functions. If trained well, both men and women can handle the machinery with equal competency.
Rajeev Chaba, president and managing director, MG Motor India, said, “The rollout of our 50,000th Hector by an all-women crew comes as an honour to their contributions and hard work. It also demonstrates that glass ceilings no longer exist even in an erstwhile male-dominated industry such as automobile manufacturing. We believe that it will inspire more women to join the automotive industry in India and abroad.”
