Message from Vice Chairman

More than a Century old, Kirloskar Group is a household name in India. In the pursuit of developing indigenous technology and industry, the affiliation with TMC to form TKM (Toyota Kirloskar Motor) in 1997 marked a significant beginning. Continuing the thrust to work for the growth of Indian industry, the establishment of TKAP in 2002 marked another milestone in our history.

Toyota has a phenomenal technical expertise in auto parts and TKAP today demonstrates this global quality both in its facilities and products.

TKAP, as an established manufacturer of transmission and engines, is now well set to become one of India's leading auto component companies.

Message from Managing Director

The Automobile Industry in India is world’s fifth largest, and it is expected to reach US$ 300 billion by 2026.

India has emerged as global hub for manufacturing auto components due to its inherent cost advantages, vast human talent, established supply chain and favourable policies. This along with growing domestic automobile market, has led to increase in the number and scale of global and domestic component manufacturers. Further, Govt policies and schemes to promote electrification will drive significant growth and the Indian auto-components industry is set to become the 3rd largest in the world by 2025.

With highly skilled human resource pool, we have established a global production facility having state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and enhanced flexibility through quick set-up change capability. On technology front, new challenges emerge as India gets ready to leapfrog into CAFE2 and Electric mobility. We, at TKAP are poised well to take on the challenges by drawing on the strengths of Toyota and Aisin’s advanced technologies to offer cutting edge, drivetrain products that meets the customer expectations and regulatory requirements.

We keenly look forward to strengthening our Indian footprint with “ever better products” in the drive train segment by expanding to e-drive products and realize our vision- WIN INDIA, WIN THE WORLD.
