For Toshiba, to set up its manufacturing facility in India, Tamil Nadu was preferred choice, as it is well connected to the rest of India and to the entire world through its seaports. In Tamil Nadu, we are in a position to recruit skilled and talented Manpower. It is important to mention here about the unstinted continuous co-operation and support provided by Guidance in setting up of our manufacturing facility. By setting up our manufacturing site at Chennai, we have already fulfilled the “Make in India” campaign, now we are progressing towards our next target of “Export from India.”
“Timken’s collaboration with Guidance has been very fruitful since our inception in 2007 in Tamilnadu. Their professional approach and willingness to help organizations in setting up their business is commendable. We have had a great journey with the Guidance Bureau, who have supported us right from providing the NOC in establishing our factory to recent plant expansion. We look forward to their continued support as we grow our business in Tamilnadu.”
The Wholehearted approach of Guidance team to facilitate investment. Their work resonates with our strategy and reinforces our commitment to Tamil Nadu. We find them a pleasure to deal with because they “Walk the Talk.”
One of the main reasons why we decided to come here is because Tamil Nadu government is very supportive of new plans like ours. In fact, our talented engineers and skilled workers are from Tamil Nadu.
"With the constant support of the Government of Tamil Nadu through the years, today Ashok Leyland is one of the leading commercial vehicle manufacturers of the world. This has been possible due to the constant support and the conducive environment that the Government of Tamil Nadu has provided. The Guidance Bureau has been supporting us and lending us excellent support through every stage of the process of further investment in the state. We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to the Government of Tamil Nadu and the Guidance Bureau for their continuous support extended to Ashok Leyland and Hinduja Group companies in the state"
