Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd (M&M Ltd) has inaugurated its state-of-the-art spare parts warehouse in Mahindra World City (MWC), Jaipur. As one of the largest, most modern warehouses in the country and the company’s first in northern India, it will cater to the requirement of Mahindra customers in north and north western region of the country for both automotive and tractor spare parts.
The warehouse was inaugurated by Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., in the presence of other senior company officials.
Spread over an 11 acre plot with an additional 5 acres for future expansion, this state-of-the-art spare parts warehouse aims to significantly reduce the order processing time for its customers based in North India.

The company will procure spare parts from over 1,000 vendors and 9 plants for this new facility. With an investment of Rs. 150 crores, it will generate employment for over 450 direct and indirect employees. This Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) is one of the first such facilities to implement SAP – EWM for lean processes ensuring simpler, faster, more accurate and efficient warehousing. This is expected to be a major enabler in easing processes, enabling higher speeds through automation and reach world class benchmarks in process, scalability, flexibility, speed, infrastructure and quality.
