HMSI Boosts Global Presence With New Engine Assembly Line mobility outlook

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has unveiled a new engine assembly line at its Global Resource Factory in Manesar, marking a significant stride in its export and manufacturing capabilities. This development, focusing on Completely Knocked Down (CKD) engines, enhances HMSI's role in the global two-wheeler market and asserts its commitment to innovation and quality.

This expansion is aligned with HMSI's strategic aim to serve a growing international customer base, spanning 58 countries across Europe, the Americas, Middle East, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific regions.

The inauguration event was attended by distinguished company executives, including Mr. Tsutsumu Otani, Managing Director, President & CEO of Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India. In his address, Mr. Otani highlighted the assembly line as a key component of Honda’s global strategy. “We are thrilled to launch the new CKD engine assembly line here in Manesar. It stands as a beacon of our continuous efforts to lead with advanced technology and to cater to a diverse global market with high-quality products,” he stated.

The Manesar facility, operational since 2001 with the launch of the iconic 'Activa', has been pivotal in establishing HMSI’s reputation as a premier two-wheeler manufacturer. It has since evolved into a significant export hub, underpinning India's stature in the global automotive landscape.

The state-of-the-art assembly line is not only about capacity but also about innovation and efficiency. It features:

Precision Assembly Tools: Including DC tools for critical torqueing and a vision camera inspection system, ensuring high standards of quality.

Complete Traceability: Every part and process is meticulously tracked to maintain and enhance quality control.

Acoustic Testing: An acoustic chamber and a dedicated exhaust collection line are utilised to ensure that the engines meet global sound standards.

Automation: Advanced automation technologies such as a flywheel assembly automation system and an automatic piston parts verification system are employed to ensure precision and reduce human error.

The move is expected to have a positive impact on India’s export figures and enhance the country's engineering prowess on a global scale.
