Jamshedpur 16th Mar 2020: Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur plant has been recognized for the 4th Industrial Revolution at the Advanced Light House of the World Economic Forum.
With this, Tata Steel has joined the category of three other companies in the Global Light House Network.
Earlier, it included Tata Steel’s Kalinganagar plant and IJmuidens Netherlands plant.
The World Economic Forum’s Shaping the Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Production has set up the Global Lighthouse Network to bridge the gap between the manufacturing units that have adopted the 4th Industrial Revolution Technologies and those who are yet to embrace it.
MD T.V. Narendran expressed happiness over the inclusion of the Jamshedpur plant in the lighthouse network.
Mr. Narendran said: “It is a matter of pride for all of us at Tata Steel. After Kalinganagar, the Jamshedpur plant has also joined the prestigious Light House Network of the World Economic Forum for the work being done in the field of technology. We are happy to achieve this achievement for Jamshedpur this year. State-of-the-art equipment, utilities, and digitization have made the operation of machines easier, leading to improved productivity. The COVID-19 epidemic has intensified our resolve to move towards digital manufacturing. “
However, Tata Steel was established in 1907. By 2021 the company made improvements to the work culture at the integrated plant.
