New Delhi, Jan 9 (UNI) Hinduja Group's flagship company Ashok Leyland today said its production plant in Dubai will be operational by June, with a capacity to manufacture 2,000 buses a year.
''Our production unit at Dubai will be fully operational by June-end this year, which will have a capacity to manufacture 2,000 buses a year,'' company Managing Director R Seshasayee told UNI on the sidelines of a conference at the 9th Auto Expo here.
The company had earlier said the unit would be functional by the end of February 2008.
With an initial investment of 500 million dollars for the plant, Mr Seshasayee said, ''the plant will have its maximum capacity in a single phase, instead of two phases as planned earlier.'' The company would subsequently increase the capacity in terms of integration and number of units.
