Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) had shut its operations on March 23, under the Government's directives to follow the nationwide lockdown to avoid the spread of the dreadful COVID-19. The two-wheeler manufacturer has now resumed work at its manufacturing plant in Haryana.

Suzuki India has charted out detailed guidelines for all its employees which include social distancing, wearing of masks, periodic sanitisation and avoiding movement in large groups among others. It has also installed a disinfectant chamber for individuals to pass through it every day in order to prevent any infection and maintain a safe working environment.

At the onset, SMIPL will resume operation with limited workforce and will gradually shift to full production cycle as per the Government's directive. We have implemented detailed operating guidelines with emphasis on social distancing to ensure maximum precautions are taken by all our employees. In order to overcome the challenges faced due to the ongoing situation, we also believe that it is necessary that we all stay together in high spirits by continuing to motivate each other," commented Koichiro Hirao, managing director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd.
