Ingersoll-Rand has through its group companies in India extended its support to the government of India in its ongoing fight against COVID-19 by supporting critical industries and manufacturing units.
The group is adhering with the government of India’s health and safety guidelines to support the functioning of critical industries like hospitals, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, PPE manufacturing companies, food and beverages. Ingersoll Rand (India) Limited has announced that it has donated a total sum of INR 1 crore towards the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM Cares) fund; the announcement is part of its community relations initiative.
As a voluntary drive, employees have also contributed a part of their salaries, adding up to a total of INR 6 lakhs, for this initiative.
Supporting critical industries
With the new norms of allowing the opening of manufacturing units with a limited staff, Ingersoll-Rand has its factories functioning across India to ensure a quicker turn-around.
Safety of employees a priority
Ingersoll-Rand is driving awareness campaigns for its employees across India to help them join office and factory units without any anxieties or worries. The company is also sending regular communication to guide employees to adopt “best hygiene practices” to remain safe. Abiding by the government of India and WHO’s guidelines, the group is ensuring social distancing and the availability of PPE kits for the employees across the manufacturing units and offices.
Amar Kaul, Chairman and Managing Director, Ingersoll-Rand (India) Limited said, “In these tough times, it is important for corporates and people to come together and work with the government in its efforts to curtail Covid-19. While our teams work around the clock to support critical industries, we are hopeful that the total donation of INR 1.06 cr. will further aid the government in its immediate relief measures for the people in need.”
