Godrej Material Handling
Established in 1963 and part of Godrej & Boyce Group, GODREJ-Material Handling, is India's largest lift truck manufacturer. The forklift range of the company includes electric, LPG, and diesel counterbalanced forklifts up to 25 tonne capacity, warehouse trucks, and special trucks for specific applications. In July 2014, the company adopted the Theory of Constraints (TOC) framework with the objective of revamping its operations to enable it to better meet customer expectations. Before implementing TOC, the company was struggling with frequently missing commitments in the market in spite of high finished goods inventory. But within a few months of implementation, the large and varying manufacturing lead-times crashed to one-third of the original lead time. Dramatic improvements in the supply chain and operations made this possible.
