It is now more than a year since Dormer Pramet completed the acquisition of Miranda Tools in India.
To mark the occasion, a special event was held at the end of 2021, involving all employees located at the Ankleshwar production unit (PU), as well as sales colleagues from right across the country.
It was indeed an opportunity to thank and congratulate everyone involved in what has been a successful integration and transformation of the Miranda brand into the Dormer Pramet family.
Celebrations began with the traditional Indian way of worship to Lord Ganesha, as the remover of obstacles and showering good luck.
Since the acquisition, Dormer Pramet has invested in several upgrades on workplace safety, health and creating a better environment for employees, with sprinklers, air circulation systems, better lighting and flooring for easy material movement.
This activity also includes an upgrade and refurbishment of machinery with an improved layout in the Tool bits and Endmills production floor. A designated place for handling and disposal of process waste has been setup, which is an important step towards the company’s commitment to sustainability.
In addition, Dormer Pramet has increased employment opportunities to more than 750 people at the Ankleshwar facility. This includes improved employee facilities, such as a new canteen, reception area and designated parking for safe movement of employees around the premises of its main plant.
Another key initiative, has enabled opportunities for more female employees, taking key roles in management positions, and contributing towards Dormer Pramet’s diversity and inclusion objectives to ‘Make the Shift’. Also, as a part of its social and community development, employees’ children were awarded with scholarships for higher education and the plantation of 100 trees was initiated in a nearby village, close to the production unit.
