With over two months now since the first phase of the lockdown was announced in the last week of March, an increasing number of consumer durable companies have resumed manufacturing while strictly following the directives issued by the government. The latest company to resume manufacturing is Super Plastronics Pvt Ltd, the official brand licensee of Kodak TVs in India.

Some of key changes in Standard operating procedures (SOPs) include installing human sanitisation machines, phased production with staggered shifts, frequent disinfection, sanitisation, compulsory use of masks and protective gears, quarantine floor for any medical emergency, regular temperature checks, physical distancing among employees, frequent sanitisation and employee training to ensure workplace compliance. The company announced its holistic plan focussing on changes in their SOPs  to restart businesses without compromising on the health of its workers and providing hygienic products to its consumers.

Avneet Singh Marwah, Director and CEO- SPPL, a Kodak brand licensee, says, “As manufacturing units reopen, it’s a huge relief to the manufacturing industry of India. Yet at the same time, for us health of workers and safety of consumers is first. We have taken the required steps to ensure that safety of the products is not compromised, through strict guidelines on physical distancing and sanitisation. We will also be focussing on online sales channels for safe delivery to our customers across red, orange and green zones, while the retail shops will open as and when we get permissions.”
