Preliminary assessments indicate that production from the paint shop may get impaired for about a week, post which it may take some time for the facility to ramp up fully to its existing production levels. The company has about a week’s inventory of supply float in the pipeline. All necessary steps are being taken to resume production from the facility at the earliest, while parallely mobilising alternate painting facilities within Tata Motors’ Pune plant.
The facility is adequately insured for fire, including for loss of operations resulting thereof.
