BLOOD DONATION DRIVE
As an organisation, Mansons is committed towards being socially responsible. And as an extension of our pledge, during the week of Daan Utsav, we successfully organised our first ever Blood Donation Camp, at our plant in Panvel. In association with Think Foundation, an organisation that works mainly with Thalassaemia Major patients across India, and Samarpan Blood Bank, we managed to exceed all expectations and collected more than 102 units of blood in one day - a group motivated achievement that once again reflects Team Mansons determination and dedication towards the promise of a more responsible and secure social environment.
PRAHAAR MANSONS SUPRA SAEINDIA FORMULA STUDENT RACING TEAM
In the past 24 months Mansons International Pvt. Ltd. has played a pivotal role towards Prahaar Racing from Saraswati College of Engineering, Navi Mumbai, by providing financial as well as technical support.
From axle end spindles and gear box housings being machined in their tool room to fabrication and precision argon welding of the safety roll-cage in their suspension system facility the enthusiastic students of Prahaar Racing have been busy at various Mansons International facilities, planning, manufacturing and preparing their car for the Supra SAEINDIA Formula Student race.
TPR-600 is the car produced by Prahaar Racing for the competition. It was designed strictly by following the guidelines given by the SAE organisation, and it was built to satiate the need for high speed and high performance by auto-enthusiasts within a budget price. The car uses an air restricted Honda CBR 600R engine which was specially imported from the USA, since the competition requires teams use an engine under 610cc capacity, this four cylinder, 0.6 litre heart was selected in order to ensure optimum performance. The car has a max power of 79.93 Bhp @ 11000 rpm and churns out a max torque of 64.79 Nm at 7500 rpm. Each and every aspect and component was thought of and designed indigenously by the students.
A 20 member team of enthusiastic students who were fascinated by the world of Motorsports was put together after a screening process involving a written test and a personal interview. Prior to Supra SAEINDIA FORMULA STUDENT 2014, the team had also participated in BAJA SAEINDIA 2013 which was held in Indore, the team had built an All Terrain Vehicle which was also sponsored by Mansons International Pvt. Ltd. Similar to a Formula 1 calendar the Formula Student event takes places all over the world from Germany to Italy and so on. The next major event for the team is the inaugural Formula Student India 2015 to be held at the Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore during the last week of January 2015.
The team successfully registered and qualified for the competition with an all India rank of 16th from amongst 60 teams across the country. We expect exciting news from Team Prahaar Mansons in the coming months.
1st CLEANLINESS DRIVE
Mansons as an organisation has taken up the initiative to clean the surroundings of our workplace. For doing so, we organised a cleanliness drive in Jawahar Co-operative Industrial Estate in Kamothe in the month of January 2017. Cleanliness of our surroundings is of utmost importance to the organisation, therefore we encouraged participation of not only our employees but also the people who are a part of this industrial society. One of the main purpose of this programme was to create awareness regarding Cleanliness and its benefits among the people who live and use this society on a day to day basis.
The cleaning activity spanned over a period of three weeks wherein we covered all the areas surrounding our factories located in Jawahar Industrial Estate in Kamothe. The event started off with an oath where each one pledged to keep the surroundings of this area clean and free of litter and in doing so encouraged others as well. A complete group effort where each one put in their best and cleaned most of the garbage and litter in the area. Every week we saw a growing number of 45 to 50 people participating in this event and even encouraged other companies to regularly organise such activities.
Yet another successful event that highlights the dedication and determination of Team Mansons toward creating a healthier and cleaner environment.
