There are over 50 micro units in the industry, having a collective annual turnover over Rs.25 crore.
“The micro units in the industry manufacture most types of tractor parts and supply it to big big brands, who later assemble them to sell the finished tractors,” stated Satnam Singh, a small manufacturer from Hoshiarpur.
“Although we do not have much finance, we try to deliver our best,” Singh said.
“We can be on top of the auto parts manufacturers list if we are given better infrastructure or finances to upgrade the technology used in production,” said Ramesh Luthra, another manufacturer.
“The state government must support the industrialists to help this industry grow. Other small problems such as irregular supply of electricity and lack of facilities being provided by the state government should also be resolved,” he said.
