Ask Dharmesh Arora, CEO of Schaeffler India, to name some of the company’s big customers, and the response is atypical. With a big smile, he candidly says, “Everyone”. It’s not exaggeration or hubris. Whether it’s the giants in the two-wheeler space such as Bajaj Auto, TVS Motor and Royal Enfield or the big vehicle manufacturers in the country such as Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra and Mahindra, Tata Motors, Hyundai Motor, Renault, Nissan and Kia Motors — the Germany-based Schaeffler Group’s India arm provides auto components to almost all the established brands.
