TELCO-Rising to World Standards

TELCO Rising to World Standards TATA ENGINEERING AND LOCO MOTIVE COMPANY (TELCO) is implementing plans for constructing a modern manufacturing facility at Lucknow. The factory will produce medium and heavy commercial vehicles as well as special purpose vehicles. This plant is expected to play a significant role in the future development and growth of Telco. The company is actively discussing a proposal with Daimler-Benz to manufacture its 'World Concept' range of commercial vehicles. The vehicles would be marketed overseas by Daimler-Benz under its brand and would lead to a technological up- gradation of the existing range of vehicles in India. The project would yield substantial exports for the country and would further strengthen Telco's technological base and capability to make vehicles to international standards. The 'Tata Estate' station-wagon is in the The Week's Companies final stages of development and testing. It will be available ultimately in both petrol and diesel versions and will have several sophisticated safety and convenience features which are today found only in cars manufactured overseas. There has been a favourable market response to the Tatamobile 206 Pick-up which was productionised and launched during 1988-89. The vehicle was tested by government agencies and certified as fuel- efficient. Customer feedback has been continuously monitored for effecting further improvements. Though the company plans to produce 5,000 Tfctamobiles during 1989-90 in the current year, there will still be a backlog of orders from the bookings which closed in March 1989.
