Celebrating 75th Jubilee of Exide Industries
Exide Industries celebrated its journey of 75 years with a spectacular event on January 14 at the Taal Kutir Convention Centre. The evening’s programme was the culmination of a yearlong celebration that consisted of various initiatives, events and contests for employees marking its glorious platinum jubilee. The programme began with a creative retelling of the story of Exide by employees and their children. This was followed by music, dance and drama performances. A fashion walk participated by the top management of the organisation brought on loud cheers. A live performance by Amit Kumar, who rendered nostalgic melodies of the ‘70s and ‘80s Bollywood, brought curtains down on the show. Earlier, winners of the sporting event Exide Premier League and employees who have served the company for many years were felicitated.
“In these seven-and-a-half decades, the company has expanded from a single factory in West Bengal to a manufacturing behemoth with plants in six states in India and a significant presence abroad. We want to carry forward the legacy Exide has built in the last 75 years, and grow it from strength to strength in the next 75 years,” said MD and CEO of Exide Industries, Subir Chakraborty, while speaking on the occasion.
