Jamna Auto mulls new facilities at Hosur, Chennai

Jamna Auto Industries Ltd plans to set up two new manufacturing units for parabolic springs at Hosur in Karnataka and air-suspension springs at Chennai in Tamil Nadu. Both the plants are being set up at a project cost of Rs 80 crore. 

The Hosur facility with an annual capacity of 36,000 MTs is expected to be operational by December 2011. The company has planned capacity expansion at Hosur to meet the demand of major commercial vehicle manufacturers - Daimler India, Renault-Nissan, Leyland-Nissan & Ashok Leyland. Tata Motors’ requirement of parabolic springs is being met from the company's Malanpur plant.

The greenfield plant at Chennai will manufacture Air suspension, bogey suspension and lift axles in technical collaboration with Ridewell Corporation of USA. The company has acquired the land and prototypes developed are undergoing rigorous trial. Air suspensions are being increasingly used in low floor buses. The plant will commence commercial production from July 2011.
