    Anders Grundströmer, MD for Scania India, got a lot of attention for Scania´s immediate and long-term plans for sustainable transport solutions in India.

    Sustainability key in Indian state visit

    How can Scania and other Swedish companies be partners in India’s journey to inclusive sustainable growth? For two days this, and other issues, were discussed by the Swedish and Indian business communities, in the presence of Indian President Pranab Mukherjee and ministers from both governments.

    Scania provides support to four Government primary schools with 300 students in the villages next to Scania´s factory in India.

    Education key to a brighter future

    In the little Indian village of Jodikrishnapura, 120 children have finally got a proper English language teacher. Scania pays her salary – and hopes that one day some of her students will come to work at the production facility located right next to the school.

    Most of the women building buses in Narasapura are between 20 and 24 years of age, and have come to the factory straight from technical college.

    The factory built on equality

    Women today account for one in four employees at Scania’s newly opened bus production facility in Narasapura, India. Highly unusual in India, this mix of genders brings major benefits in terms of morale and productivity.

    50 years of Scania in China – unlikely deal spawns long-term commitment

    In 1965, the Chinese Ministry of Forestry purchased 10 Scania-Vabis trucks for long-term evaluation in exceptionally tough timber haulage. The deal marks the beginning of Scania’s continuous 50-year presence in China. In traditional Scania fashion, the pioneering years were characterised by personal initiative and dedication.
