About The Organisation
Lucas TVS was established in 1962 as Joint Venture between Lucas Plc. UK and TVS Group, India. Lucas started operations in India from 1930 as Lucas Indian Service for providing warranty and aftersales service to many of the imported vehicles which carried Lucas parts. Initially with Starters, Dynamos and Distributor products, Lucas TVS, over the years, commenced providing complete system solutions in Auto Electricals, specialized motors for Air Compressors, Stop-Start systems, Engine Cooling modules, Ignition products, Diesel Fuel Injection systems etc. Lucas TVS develops and integrates their products in the vehicles and equipment, from the design stage onwards and carries out application engineering, development, manufacturing and service. The company developed innovative products, manufacturing systems and processes, which had brought growth in business and this could result in Lucas TVS being one of the few companies in the World to be awarded the Deming Application Prize and the Deming Grand Prize, by Union of Japanese Scientists & Engineers and setting benchmarks in the industry. Lucas TVS relies on investing in both people and infrastructure. Lucas TVS has established R&D and Product Proving and Reliability testing facilities, which have been recognised by the Government of India – Dept. of Science & Technology. In the year 2001 Lucas TVS became a wholly-owned company of TVS Group, as Lucas the parent company ceased to exist worldwide. While this might have created a technological challenge, Lucas TVS recognised this as an opportunity and exploited successfully; today 75% of revenues are from products engineered and developed locally by Lucas TVS. Lucas TVS is currently supplying to over 90% of automotive manufacturers in India and also exporting to North America and Europe.
