Car manufacturer Honda Siel Tuesday said it would export engine components to Japan from October.
"This export programme is due to a shortage of Japanese supply," Honda Siel president and chief executive Masahiro Takedagawa told reporters on the sidelines of a conference.
The company will export crank shaft and the connecting rod manufactured at its Tapukara plant in Rajasthan. Honda Siel has another factory at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh.
"Honda Siel has bagged the export order due to a rapid increase in the sale of small cars in Japan, which has led to a capacity constraint at Honda facilities for these engine components," Takedagawa said.
The company will produce 54,000 sets of the crank shafts and connecting rods for export over six months.
The exports will help integrate Honda Siel with the Japanese company's pan-Asia supply chain network.
