As part of our commitment to foster greater diversity and inclusion we are delighted to have appointed women to lead our manufacturing operations at two key plants.

Dr Smita Kumari has been appointed to lead our new Telangana plant taking control of our manufacturing operations there. Meanwhile Savita Kamble has joined us as head of manufacturing at our 26B facility in Attibele, Bangalore, one of our most advanced plants in the region.

Smita brings rich experience in manufacturing spanning more than a decade in the oil and gas, consumer goods and energy sectors. Her experience will be invaluable in bringing this state-of-the-art factory to life to better serve our strong customer base in Telangana and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

She believes the plant will be unique in terms of digital transformation and operational excellence. But, she says, there will also be an emphasis on recruiting a higher proportion of female employees.

“My prime focus will be on compliance, employee satisfaction, operational excellence, ESG and on making Telangana a model plant for Ashirvad and Aliaxis.”

Savita has vast experience in operational excellence having held senior positions in quality management in leading auto manufacturers. She is a Six-Sigma black belt with a strong technical background and a Master’s degree in technology and Metallurgy.

Like Smita, she is committed to building on our reputation for high quality innovation and close customer collaboration.

And, as a people manager, she is determined to create a supportive and motivating work environment.

“I believe in the power of communication, clear goal-setting and regular feedback. Moreover, I believe that diversity brings a wealth of ideas and experiences which can enrich our company culture and drive innovation.”
