All-women crew rolls out 50,000th MG Hector
MG Motor India has manufactured its 50,000th MG Hector with an all-women crew in Gujarat’s Vadodara. In this first-of-its-kind development, women-only teams were involved in panel-pressing of sheet metal and welding to painting jobs as well as carrying out post-production test runs. The automaker has 33 percent women workforce at its facility. MG says that it aims to increase this number to 50 percent in the future. Since 2018, MG has hired many female associates in its manufacturing facility via various initiatives. Today, these women are driving core areas of manufacturing at the facility. Launched in June 2019, the Hector was MG’s first model for the Indian market, with the 10,000th Hector rolling off the line in October 2019.
