    Royal Enfield to halt production for 4 days

    In light of the unprecedented situation due to the spread of COVID-19, and to prioritise safety and well-being of its personnel, Royal Enfield has decided to temporarily halt production operations at its plants in Chennai.

    • Royal Enfield will carry out maintenance activities

    • Honda, Hero and Yamaha halted manufacturing as well

    The company’s manufacturing operations across Thiruvottiyur, Oragadam and Vallam Vadagal facilities will remain shut from May 13 to May 16. During this time, the company will undertake maintenance activity at its manufacturing plants.

    Royal Enfield says that, with regards to local lockdowns across states and Union Territories impacting retail operations, it “does not foresee any significant impact on its ability to cater to demand.”

    The company states that it will continue to monitor the situation closely and will take appropriate actions as the situation progresses, and in line with the directives being issued by the government and administrative authorities.

    Royal Enfield teams are focused on ensuring support for employees and communities around its facilities. The company has issued advisories to all dealerships in India to adhere to local regulations and follow local administrative orders, as may apply. All other employees across Royal Enfield's offices, including corporate offices in Chennai and Gurgaon, continue to work from home, until further notice.
