It is spread across an area of 177 acres, out of which, Yamaha is using 109 acres and 68 acres have been given to vendor partners. To begin with, Yamaha will employ 2,000 people at its plant. The vendor park has 9 vendors who plan to invest Rs. 1,000 crore and employ around 3,000 people by 2018.
Yamaha will invest Rs. 1,500 crore in phases till 2018 in the new plant. The facility will have an initial production capacity of 4,50,000 units which will be increased to 1.8 million units by 2018. The factory plans to employ 3,900 people by 2018.
The Chennai plant incorporates infrastructure and technologies for zero-water discharge and recycle / reuse of waste water and maximum use of sunlight. The building is compatible with solar power system installation.
Yamaha had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government of Tamil Nadu in May 2012 to construct and operate the two-wheeler factory in the state.
Yamaha has two other operating factories in India located at Surajpur (Uttar Pradesh) and Faridabad (Haryana). With all three plants in operation, the company plans to have a combined two-wheeler production capacity of 2.5 million units by 2018.
