About Us

The origin of Ashok Leyland can be traced to the urge for self-reliance, felt by independent India. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister persuaded Mr. Raghunandan Saran, an industrialist, to enter automotive manufacture. In 1948, Ashok Motors was set up in what was then Madras, for the assembly of Austin Cars. The Company's destiny and name changed soon with equity participation by British Leyland and Ashok Leyland commenced manufacture of commercial vehicles in 1955.

The origin of Ashok Leyland can be traced to the urge for self-reliance, felt by independent India. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister persuaded Mr. Raghunandan Saran, an industrialist, to enter automotive manufacture. In 1948, Ashok Motors was set up in what was then Madras, for the assembly of Austin Cars. The Company's destiny and name changed soon with equity participation by British Leyland and Ashok Leyland commenced manufacture of commercial vehicles in 1955.

Since then Ashok Leyland has been a major presence in India's commercial vehicle industry with a tradition of technological leadership, achieved through tie-ups with international technology leaders and through vigorous in-house R&;D.

Access to international technology enabled the Company to set a tradition to be first with technology. Be it full air brakes, power steering or rear engine buses, Ashok Leyland pioneered all these concepts. Responding to the operating conditions and practices in the country, the Company made its vehicles strong, over-engineering them with extra metallic muscles. "Designing durable products that make economic sense to the consumer, using appropriate technology", became the design philosophy of the Company, which in turn has moulded consumer attitudes and the brand personality.

Ashok Leyland vehicles have built a reputation for reliability and ruggedness. The 5,00,000 vehicles we have put on the roads have considerably eased the additional pressure placed on road transportation in independent India.

In the populous Indian metros, four out of the five State Transport Undertaking (STU) buses come from Ashok Leyland. Some of them like the double-decker and vestibule buses are unique models from Ashok Leyland, tailor-made for high-density routes.

In 1987, the overseas holding by Land Rover Leyland International Holdings Limited (LRLIH) was taken over by a joint venture between the Hinduja Group, the Non-Resident Indian transnational group and IVECO. (Since July 2006, the Hinduja Group is 100% holder of LRLIH).

The blueprint prepared for the future reflected the global ambitions of the company, captured in four words: Global Standards, Global Markets. This was at a time when liberalization and globalization were not yet in the air. Ashok Leyland embarked on a major product and process up gradation to match world-class standards of technology.

In the journey towards global standards of quality, Ashok Leyland reached a major milestone in 1993 when it became the first in India's automobile history to win the ISO 9002 certification. The more comprehensive ISO 9001 certification came in 1994, QS 9000 in 1998 and ISO 14001 certification for all vehicle manufacturing units in 2002. It has also become the first Indian auto company to receive the latest ISO/TS 16949 Corporate Certification (in July 2006) which is specific to the auto industry.

Corporate Philosophy

We believe that our impressive strides in the marketplace stem in equal parts from our proactive approach and our customers' unstinting support, earned the only way we know: by giving our customers the most appropriate transport solutions for each of their applications, and by backing them up with consultancy, finance, driver training and a responsive after-market network. We are conscious of the fact that vehicles are more than just a means of transporting people and goods; we understand that they have a deep and far-reaching impact on society, the national economy and the environment.

We have, therefore, always endeavored to engineer products and systems that promote progress on all these fronts. We firmly believe that this honest approach will make the Ashok Leyland marquee the symbol of the very best in transportation, today and tomorrow.

The five AL values are:

International
Speedy
Value creator
Innovative
Ethical

Corporate Governance

  • The Board of Directors and the Management of Ashok Leyland are committed to the enhancement of shareholder value.
  • Through sound business decisions, prudent financial management and high standards of ethics throughout the organization
  • By ensuring transparency and professiaonalism in all decisions and transactions and
  • Achieving excellence in Corporate Governance by conforming to and exceeding wherever possible, the prevalent mandatory guidelines on Corporate Governance and by regularly reviewing the Board processes and the Management systems for further improvement.

The company has adopted a Code of Conduct for the members of the Board and senior management, who have all affirmed in writing their adherence to this Code.

Ombudsman

Another significant step has been the appointment of an Ombudsman to deal with any references, complaints or grievances about the Company, its employees or its dealings.

If the suppliers, employees or customers have any suggestions on governance issues or grievances or complaints on Ashok Leyland's practices - inclusive of its executives in various functions - which they feel ought to be raised with the Ombudsman and not with the usual channels of business, they may do so.

It is advised that the regular business dealings should be through the usual business functional channels. The Ombudsman will not deal with them under normal circumstances.

The Ombudsman is Mr. N. Mohanakrishnan, a former Executive Director of the Company, with an excellent understanding of Ashok Leyland as an organization and its functioning, having been with the company for nearly 30 years.
