Guys,
I've been trying to search the thread where we were discussing well maintained factory in India. I tried my best but failed to find that.
Here are some picture of Mercedes Pune factory. This factory has been awarded the best factory outside Germany for last three years if I'm not mistaken.

Haha, must be some inside job Rudra for you to get us these photos. Awesome. That place is cleaner than a hospital. A Auto Hangar chap was telling me that visitors have to take off every metal piece off them before entering the factory (watches, chains, keys etc.) to avoid scratching the cars.

Thanks for sharing

These were shot few years ago for their corporate booklet.
The place is actually very clean. No need for Photoshoping

The same is true for the Ford factory in Chennai. They make you cover all the metal articles you have with some protective material. I saw it in 'Boss's day out' at NDTV Profit featuring the MD of ford india.
