The building looks spectacular at all times of the day! I couldn't believe it was in India (esp the daylight pic) till I saw the Indica.

Excellent pics and I must say, you're one lucky chap!

The place has the clinical look of a hospital operating room! Awesome.

And the place looks great too. Just hope it remains that way and doesn't get "Indian-ised" and ill-maintained.

I think it will remain as is. I had an opportunity to visit their old plant last year. It was as neatly maintained as this one.

You are true, I've visited the earlier plant at Pimpri 4-5 times between 2001 to 2008 & I've seen it in the same quality & neatness maintained in all my visites.

The old plant has been awarded the best Merc assembly plant outside Germany for five years in a raw and while judging for this award the parent company will send a team for panel to decide the award.
