Aurangabad : Greaves Cotton Limited, one of India’s leading engineering companies, achieved a rare distinction when it crossed production of two million light diesel engines on May 7, 2009. 

Commenting on this landmark achievement, the Company’s Managing Director & CEO Mr. Prabhakar Dev, said "With an annual production of over 2,50,000 single cylinder light diesel engines, Greaves is already amongst the largest manufacturers of such engines in the world. If we maintain this momentum, I reckon the next million is not too far away."

The roll out took place at the Company’s Aurangabad plant. In December 2004, Greaves had reached the millionth light diesel engine mark. The second million has taken just 4 ½ years.

Greaves has also recently forayed into the manufacture of twin cylinder engines for various applications such as four-wheeled low cost commercial vehicles, gensets and construction equipment.

Greaves began the manufacture of light diesel engines way back in 1977 and has since set up three more plants and a Technology Centre dedicated to design and develop new proprietary technology eco-friendly diesel engines for automotive and other applications. The Company’s manufacturing plants are equipped with state-of-the-art production facilities, backed by in house R&D.

These portable engines are produced in the range of 4 – 11 HP and find applications in automotive, marine, industrial and other uses.  Greaves client list includes some of the leading 3-wheeler manufacturers in the country.  

Greaves, a Rs. 1350 crore, multi-product, multi-locational company is one of the leading engineering companies in India, with core competencies in diesel / petrol engines and infrastructure equipment. The Company sustains its leadership through ten manufacturing units which produce world class products backed by comprehensive marketing and service / parts network throughout the country.
