Hero Electric MD Naveen Munjal says the company's current capacity will touch 5 lakh (half a million) units soon, and with the upcoming Rajasthan facility, the company will be able to meet market demand in the next 2-3 years.


“In terms of capacities, we’re building up substantial capacity. We’ve already got a plant in Punjab, in Ludhiana. We’re also building a completely new greenfield plant in Ludhiana. We’ve got an outsourced facility in Pithampur in Madhya Pradesh, Mahindra plant. Now, these two give us enough and beyond capacity for what we’re going to be doing in 2023-24. We’re also working on a new greenfield project in Rajasthan. That eventually will be able to provide 2 million units capacity at peak. That is still a while away, we don’t need that capacity right now. That we will only need in a couple of years. Within the next few months, we will touch half a million units, that will be four times the current capacity,” Munjal said.
