Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, sold 183,044 units of two-wheelers in the month of May 2021. Sales in the month of May’21 were adversely impacted due to the closure of plant operations in view of the escalation in the spread of the Coronavirus in the country.
In keeping with its commitment to ensure the safety and welfare of its people, Hero
MotoCorp proactively halted operations at all of its manufacturing facilities across the
country on April 22. Three of the plants – located in Gurugram, Haridwar and Dharuhera –
resumed single-shift operations on May 17, followed by the other three located in Neemrana, Halol and Chittoor on May 24.
Considering this unprecedented situation, sales volume of May’21 is not comparable with
the corresponding month of the previous year (May’20) and sequential months of this year. The Company continues to monitor the situation closely and will move to double-shift production gradually.
With the vaccination drive gaining pace and a sharp decline in the number of Covid-positive cases, markets across the country are expected to open up gradually. This will aid in the swift recovery of businesses in the coming weeks. The Company has launched innovative digital tools in sales and after-sales to enhance customer experience and ensure a safe environment for both employees and customers.
All corporate offices of the company are in Work from Home (WFH) mode and a very small number of colleagues are allowed in offices on rotation basis for the continuity of essential services.
