Maruti Suzuki: The Indian mega-factory

If you think those numbers are impressive, it really is just the start. There also happens to be another Maruti Suzuki factory just a 20-minute drive from Gurgaon, in a place called Manesar. This one will build 550,000 Suzukis this year. Which will need another 357,500 tonnes of steel.

And then another plant is being built in Gujarat. By 2015, this will be building 250,000 cars a year. With added capacity at the other plants too, that means Maruti Suzuki should be constructing well over 2,000,000 vehicles a year. A year.

In other words, enough cars for every man, woman and child in Nagpur.
