Coronavirus Lockdown: Jawa Motorcycles Begins Production Of Face Shields At Pitampur Facility

The Jawa Motorcycles facility in Pitampur is said to have started production of face shields to fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic in India. The face shields will be distributed to doctors and healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients.

Apart from the production of face shields, Jawa Motorcycles also announced that they are distributing over 1000 food packets every day. These food packets are being prepared at the company's factory kitchen, before being distributed to the poor in areas around the facility.

Anand Mahindra applauded the efforts of the Pithampur factory on twitter. He also shared photos of factory workers while stating, "All hands on deck! Thank you, M&M, Pitampura! I'm glad the home of the Jawa bike is displaying such character & commitment."

Jawa Motorcycles, which is part of the Mahindra Group, announced that they would be suspending production of motorcycles at their facility from the 24th of March 2020. This announcement came in-line with PM Narendra Modi's decision to put the entire country under lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Mahindra has also announced that they are also producing ventilators and other medical equipment required at their various factories as well. The company recently took to twitter to showcase the prototypes of the Ventilators which were ready for approval.

The company stated that once all the approvals are received, the factories will start scaling up production of the medical equipment. These will then be distributed to doctors and all healthcare workers across the country, fighting against the coronavirus pandemic — here are the details.

Apart from Mahindra, many other manufacturers are also pledging their support for the central and state governments to fight the deadly virus. Automotive brands are offering different kinds of support, including PPE production, monetary donations or distribution of food packets and other essentials.
