Message From Kirloskar Group

The Kirloskar Group has contributed to the industrialisation of India for more than a century. Established as the manufacturer of India's first iron plough, the group has continued to live up to its core philosophy of developing indigenous technology and industry. The monumental affiliation with Toyota Motor Corporation in 1997 further attests our determination to work towards the growth of the Indian industry.

Toyota has constantly and consistently exhibited its relentless commitment to add value through its world-class systems and processes. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with Toyota by creating more investment and employment opportunities in India.

At TKM, we believe in sustainable development and seek to boost local industries and industrial infrastructure. One such initiative is the Toyota Kirloskar Auto Parts (TKAP), which was set up in May 2004 to produce transmissions for Toyota's global requirements.

Our approach enables us to create the best value not only for customers but also for the entire system from suppliers to dealers - a tradition we aim to follow and enhance along the way.

Empowering Employees

Employees are the main source of inspiration and strength for a company. We, at Toyota, strive to reflect 'Continuous Improvement' and 'Respect for People' in all our activities. Employee suggestions are taken very seriously and implemented to improve the working environment.

Training programs are a regular feature in Toyota plants across Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia. Quality Circles ensure teamwork, innovation and productivity. TKM's concept of 'Information Time' or I-Time facilitates direct communication between team members and leaders.
