Two-wheeler helmets manufacturer Studds Accessories has commenced operations at its new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Faridabad in Haryana.
Spread across an area of over 5.5 acres, the company has made an initial investment of over Rs. 160 crore to set up the largest helmet manufacturing facility in Asia, said a press release.
Apart from producing some of the most popular motorcycle helmets from Studds, including the Shifter and Thunder series, the facility will also produce bicycle helmets for domestic market, added the release.
Apart from this, Studds also recently began operations at another manufacturing plant, which is India’s only facility with an in-house Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) production line. EPS is crushable foam used in helmet production and is the most important safety feature in the helmet.
