Dr. Lakshmi Venu has taken over as the Managing Director of Sundaram-Clayton Limited (SCL), one of India’s leading auto components manufacturer at the board meeting held today. Dr. Venu was the Joint Managing Director of Sundaram Clayton.

Dr. Lakshmi Venu has been leading Sundaram Clayton from the forefront with aplomb for over a decade now.

She has been the lead architect of establishing Sundaram Clayton’s global footprint. Her decision to set up a foundry in the US three years ago in 2019 in Dorchester, South Carolina was almost prescient, as most US-based customers were looking for on-shore foundry units to reduce supply chain risks and curtail carbon footprint.

She managed the turnaround of Sundaram Clayton Ltd. to make it a competitive foundry in the world, and has built deep customer relationships with Cummins, Hyundai, Volvo, Paccar and Daimler.
