According to the official statement by Royal Enfield, “For us, expanding in Chennai comes with several advantages. Proximity to our existing plant in Tiruvotriyur will bring synergies for the supply chain as well as our existing human capital. Further, Chennai’s growing importance in the global automotive industry combined with the effective auto- eco system at Oragadam will augment our growth curve.”
