This factory is primarily to push into the lucrative and the massive volume of our commercial vehicle sector. Michelin has been trying to make it big here for a few years now and to combat the cost advantage of our local makers, it has finally decided to set up a factory.
I suspect Michelin will not start any production here unless they start seeing volumes in the 16" and upwards sizes where they can limited competition and command their desired margins and volumes.

It is nice to see thet French giant setup factory in india.
Their Michelin Energy range is claimed to provide high mileage and better wet grop due to the use of silica. It would be great if they come in with that series as no other manufacturer has silica series in India.

And here is what Mr.Prashant Prabhu, president of Michelin AIM (Africa, India & Middle East), said at the launch at The Park hotel, Chennai “This is the state where we are building a Michelin type manufacturing plant, and it's welcomed us. So this is our humble gesture in return…”
The Hindu reporter has done a great job of this story and summarizes saying take it with a pinch of fleur de sel!
