“Ramkrishna Forgings strengthens its North American presence through…securing a substantial business contract valued at USD 13.65 million for supplying rear axle and transmission components,” it said.
The awarded contract pertains to the production and supply of rear axle and transmission components for Class 5, 6, and 7 vehicles. With this accomplishment, the company said it is strategically expanding its footprint in North America and strengthening its position within the light vehicle sector.
Lalit Khetan, whole time director and CFO, Ramkrishna Forgings Limited, said, “This significant business award is a testament to the company’s commitment to excellence and our strong foothold in the North American market. The new business not only underscores our focus on meeting the evolving needs of the market but also highlights our unwavering dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions that drive the industry forward.”
The supply of axles and transmission components will begin within the next six months, he said.
