Uday Narang, Founder and Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility said, “The opening of our Fourth manufacturing facility marks another important milestone for Omega Seiki Mobility’s commitment to growing our business in India. This facility will play a global distribution network which should leapfrog us into a market-leading position in EVs in India and overseas.
The company has an order book of 50,000 plus cargo electric three-wheelers and the Pune facility will help us to aggressively expand our operations in the West of India, added Narang.
The new EV manufacturing unit is spread over 50,000 sq. feet and will be a hub for the development and manufacturing of a complete range of Rage + Commercial Electric Vehicles and Passenger electric vehicle Stream and will employ 250 plus personnel.
“At Omega Seiki Mobility we work on the Hub and Spoke Model as the cost of transportation is very high. We will be launching four more manufacturing facilities in the next 2 years” Narang further added.
The new OSM manufacturing unit will have automated manufacturing systems for logistics and material handling, fabrication and painting, assembly and quality assurance, the company said.
