MTA's partnership with Ashok Leyland, a leading manufacturer of both trucks and buses in India, began about 3 years ago. The R&D team of our site in India, together with the sales force, developed different products, to be then manufactured in our Pune plant, and mounted near the battery, in 3 different combinations for ICV Trucks, Electric Buses and City Buses of the Company. The customer started to use our 5-way frame, with dedicated cover and locks and different compositions of fuse/relay modules, mounted in the cabin of its City Buses.
Thanks to the reliability, robustness and the cost effectiveness of the product, MTA was selected for the development of another, a specific BDU, which accommodates one MegaVal fuse and a die cast battery terminal, for Ashok Leyland Coaches. The product, supplied with a cover tethered to the body, has very compact dimensions, which make it versatile and easy to be placed.
For their own trucks, on the other hand, Ashok Leyland chose a “new generation” of MegaVal and MidiVal fuse holders, which can be used both stand alone or clipped together to build different BDUs, offering numerous combination possibilities for a wide range of applications.
MTA India is located in Pune, which is considered a strategic city for the automotive market due to the presence of major local and foreign carmakers.
