BHEL extends support to indigenous suppliers to develop self-reliance in manufacturing
India’s largest engineering and manufacturing enterprise, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), has been spearheading the Make in India movement with a special focus on contributing to the AatmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan. Towards developing self-reliance in manufacturing, BHEL has taken the lead in reaching out to local industry including MSME (Micro, Small & Medium) vendors as potential partners. As a step in this direction, the company is organising a series of interactive workshops, titled ‘BHEL Samvaad’, under the guidance of the Department of Heavy Industry (DHI).
The first in the series of online workshops on collaborative manufacturing, saw a cross-section of Indian Industries, Industrial houses and MSMEs coming together to dwell upon the next steps for increased cooperation in indigenous manufacturing. The workshop also aimed at fostering better utilisation of assets for development of technologies and products.
