      Auto part cos tap new sectors to drive growth

      The uptick in the auto segment may be back, but global slowdown has taught auto component firms one key lesson — the need to spread risks and not put all eggs in one basket. If in the past, tier I and II suppliers were gung-ho about the export market, scores of auto component companies have now started seriously evaluating diversification opportunities.Those having made a headway include Bharat Forge, Sundram Fasteners, Wheels India, Shriram Pistons, Lucas TVS, Autotech Industries, India Pistons, Super Auto Forge, Susira, the Mahindras, the Tata Group, Lakshmi Precision Tools, Caparo Fasteners, Sterling Tools, Caparo Engineering and Maini.

      Mahindra might buy SsangYong Motor Company

      This news was flashed on all business channels yesterday. Might consider buying out the beleaguered South Korean SUV manufacturer.According to the Korea Economic Daily, M&M recently sent a letter to the management of SsangYong, expressing its desire of buying controlling rights in the cash-strapped firm. The paper did not cite the source of the news.While SsangYong officials were unavailable for comment, M&M officials declined to do so. Interestingly, M&M was in the race to buy a controlling stake in SsangYong in 2003 when its holding company, Daewoo, went bust and creditors put up a 54 per cent stake in the Korean company for sale.M&M, however, later pulled out of the race as it believed that SMC failed to fit into its plans for the international market.M&M was also planning to bring in SsangYong’s seven-seater SUV Rexton to the Indian market, which would have sold alongside the Scorpio, the M&M flagship passenger vehicle.
