TVS Motor Company

Oct 4th, 2006, in Business & Economy, by

TVS Motor Company of India sees Indonesia as the base for its operations in South East Asia.

TVS Motor Company, a producer of motorcycles, last year decided to invest $43 million to build a factory in Karawang, West Java. The production line for the factory will shortly come on line. The President Director of TVS Motor, B.L.P Simha, was optimistic that the motor cycle market in Indonesia was promising and said that the company, which is part of the $2.2 billion TVS group in Chennai, India, had set a sales target of 300,000 units per year.

Simha went on to say that he was not afraid of going up against the established, Japanese, manufacturers of motorbikes in Indonesia, such as Honda. Such competition only caused his company to increase its quality, he said. He also held out the possibility that TVS would further increase its investment in Indonesia if market conditions were conducive.

    Can some one please inform address and phone number of TVS motor company factory in Indonesia?

    I graduate from ATMI Solo and I think this is a great improvement that TVS Motor Company produces their product in Indonesia and ready to “fight” with other competitors which already become a great company in Indonesia.

    So I would like to join this company if “possible” and there are any vacancy in your company. Thank you…

    Indonesia has a bold potential for a lot of things. ATMI is doing a great job but not very well publilcised in Jakarta.
    We are an Australian Indonesian Joint Venture company manufacturing pipe metal expansion joints.

    We would like to employ local talent in Manufacturing, Engineering, QA and we are unable to fiind good staff/Supervisor or Managers.
    I have been told in Jakarta most young people prefer to work in an office and young people would like to take up courses in Economics degree or Accounting degree as this would allow them to work in good airconditioned offices. Blue collar workers are picked up mainly from vocational schools based in country towns. We would be very keen to hear from people who knows how to find good talented young men to work for real positions.
    I have been told that ATMI produces young graduates but only limited numbers due to their seat limitations and young graduates are picked up by large Japanese companies. Companies like us have very little chance of getting such persons and we have to import expats to work for us in key positions.

    TVS has a long-term commitment to Indonesia, which is demonstrated through their manufacturing plant in Karawang, West Java & developing Indonesia as a hub for Asean. Presently within 8 months of sales operations, PT TVS Motor Company Indonesia has more than 200 outlets to provide service & spare parts to TVS customers in Indonesia. In the first phase, TVS has dealer network in Jawa & Sumatera. TVS will be opening 3S dealership in Kalimantan and Sulawesi island shortly

    TVS is currently present in Indonesia with two variants, one is the innovative TVS Neo 110 cc, a revolutionary bebek motorcycle in its class equipped with innovative and interesting features : i-ride (double clutch feature; manual & automatic); i-econo (a technology that helps save fuel usage); i-start (a temperature sensor technology which assists users to save time less than three minutes) ; i-charge (a cellphone battery charger); i-space (a feature providing additional baggage) and duralife engine (a feature that increases engine durability). In July, TVS has introduced a new style version in TVS Neo Xi 110 cc.

    While the other one is the TVS Apache RTR 160 cc, a sports motorcycle which has received many international awards, both for engine performance and design.

    To find out more about products, information on products, bengkels and spare parts, please call the TVS I-Care Call Center at tel. 021 – 319 00700, on Monday-Sunday, from 08.30 to 17.30 WIB.

    Wellcome TVS Motor in Indonesia, which make another choice for motorcycle consumer. If TVS want to exsist in Indonesia for long time, you must concern with model design first (generally all about best product). Without that, how good your management, and other supports, not influence for anything.
    Now, I am as a Service Manager Area in South & Central Kalimantan, Indonesia of one of Japanese motorcycle product. So I learn from Chinese motorcycle product that expand in Indonesia, why they are collaps: 1. Bad Product, 2. No available after sales service & spare part, and 3. Bad Human Resourches. So, Good Luck TVS

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have purchased a tvs flame on 19.06.2008. Last free service was done on 08.05.2009 at that time i requested to change engine oil and complained about abnormal sound, but it was not attended by service agency (Balaji Automobile, Bilaspur) and they told me that it will be attended next time whenever i free to come. Then on 01.06.09 i visited for the same and they charged me for the same. They replaced break shoe of 350 rs and engine oil for 195 rs plus 68 rs service charges.
    During free services i also found that the behaviour of agency personnel was not proper. Mechanic also asking for money to do the job properly and on priority. Please do the needful and try to improve cutomer sevices, so that TVS customers like me didn’t get frustrate….

    Dear Sir,
    I have purchased a tvs scooty teenz(ev) on 05.07.2008. But unfortunately, batteries
    were malfunctioning only after 7000kms running. Meter shows the full charge of batteries but it started decreasing very quickly.I went to my dealer with my problem but they could do nothing.After keeping the vehicle for 5 days,they returned it back in same condition as it was.I am very hopeless about what to do.Your owner’s manual says–‘IT IS RECOMMENDED TO GET THE VEHICLE SERVICED AT TVS MOTOR COMPANY AUTHORISED DEALER/AUTHORISED SERVICE CENTRE’.Their behavior is getting me so frustrated that I am bound to send you this message.
    Please do something so that I get a minimum service from them and try to improve customer services,so that TVS customers like me dont get frustrated.

    Already the new Apache RTR is a good product of new availability. But please increase the chassis weight and please give a damper for supporting the engine , Because the RTR engine high powered engine .So the power (vibration) is transferring toup to handle bar & to pillion footrest . The high power engine needs damping .

    And I have an idea for a new . . . ie , SINGLE SROKE ENGINE . More power & milage . Only & only the support of TVS MOTOR COMPANY . . .

    Have a nice day . . .

    I had purchased apache 160 on sept. 2009. i called ms. Shamali ( tvs employee) for my apache reffered gift ( tvs bag). Since 3 months i am calling her but she SIMPLY answered that MY BIKE IS NOT YET REGISTERED TILL THIS DATE ? ( !!!!!!), the local dealer (Mohan auto, kolhapur, maharashtra) answerd that they had updated all information.
    Whenever i called TVS SMILE FOREVER CENTER ( ms. Shamali, ph no.08041528886)
    she answered very causially and i get less satisfactory answer from her. i also told her abut complianing against her to her manager she simply neglected and said ‘OK’. then i realised about tvs that after capturing customer and thier money tvs(employee) has zero value for them.
    lastly, i want to ask tvs, is your ONLINE registration for bike is such tedious method?
    is u have no respect for customer………………..???
