TVS Motor Company Limited is one of the leading two-wheeler manufacturers in India
TVS Motor Company Ltd. is the flagship
company of the TVS Group established in 1911 by T. V.
Sundaram Iyengar. TVS Motor Company is the third largest
two-wheeler manufacturer in India.
In 1980, TVS produced the TVS 50, India's first two-seater moped that redefined the realm of personal transportation. In 1982, the company entered into a technical collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan which helped the fledgling joint venture gain from the expertise of a global two-wheeler giant like Suzuki.
In 1997, TVS-Suzuki became the first company to launch a 100-cc motorcycle in the Indian market. In 2000, the TVS group and Suzuki Motor Corporation parted ways from their joint venture with the former buying out the 25.97 per cent stake of the Japanese company for Rs 9 crore.
TVS Motor Company is the first two-wheeler manufacturer in the world to be honoured The Deming Prize for Total Quality Management.
