WORDS OF INSPIRATION As we move towards normalcy, it will be crucial to reinforce our focus on digitisation, localisation, energy efficiency, low-cost automation and implementation of TPM across the plants. Impetus on R&D will pave the way for further growth and competitive advantage. This year we will engage in new opportunities and challenges and we need to prepared for it. Also, as an organisation, we need to continuously work towards environmental conservation. It is essential for us to contribute beyond our products and services and have clear goals for our socio-economic and environmental strategies. Ensuring the Safety of the employees should remain a priority to avoid any untoward situations. I would like to take the opportunity to assure everyone that we are together in this fight against adversaries.

Dear Friends, The first quarter of the FY2021-22 witnessed an unprecedented crisis when the entire country once again came to a standstill due to the deadly second wave of COVID19. But it is in these toughest of times we see how humanity continues to impress everyone with their grit, vigour and compassion. The obstacles may be several but our relentless efforts to move forward have been truly remarkable. I strongly believe that the automotive industry will continue to take the disruptions head on and emerge as the torch bearer of future growth. The signs of recovery are already visible and things will become better in the times to come. Lumax has been quick to respond to the crisis at hand and ensured setting up quarantine facilities, arranging Oxygen concentrators, other medical amenities and equipment and vaccination drives for its people and stakeholders. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, especially the COVID Warriors for their unwavering support in managing the crisis.

The last year has seen many firsts at Lumax, the Townhall, Cultural event, Group Strategy Meet. These initiatives have become a part of the organisation’s communication strategy to engage and connect with all its people. Similarly, ‘Shabash’ an initiative launched to appreciate and recognise the efforts of the Lumax team members needs to be invigorated and promoted at all the plants. I would also like to encourage everyone to carry forward the legacy of the ‘75 Years of Lumax’ and continue building an organisation in which all stakeholders have absolute trust. Let us all work closely to achieve excellence and meet the ever-rising expectations of our esteemed customers. DK Jain Chairman

WORDS OF INSPIRATION


Forever Etched In Our Hearts Lumax-DK Jain Group offers heartfelt condolences and prayers to those who have lost their loved ones during this difficult time. As an organisation we have lost colleagues who were passionate at their work and were respected for their relentless efforts. Their shoes will be difficult to be filled in. In this hour of grief, no words are enough to comfort their family and friends, but we all pray that the departed souls find eternal peace. Every single one of the colleagues that we lost were strong pillars of this organisation and were essential part of our journey. Their contributions will not be forgotten. We hope and pray that the God Almighty bless their family and friends with all the strength to bear the significant loss. Despite our shared grief in this Covid19 aftermath, hope, resilience, unity, positivity, compassion and humanity have lifted us all up as a society and as an organisation. History will remember us for the compassion we showed to one another, the resolve we demonstrated and how, in the face of unfathomable loss, each one of us rose as one. As OneLumax we will stand shoulder to shoulder with our extended family and fulfil our collective promise to NEVER FORGET.


KNOW YOUR LEADER


KNOW YOUR LEADER 3. Being a 75-year-old organisation, how is the reputation of Lumax with the suppliers and what all we do to ensure the welfare of the suppliers?

1. Introduction – When did you join? Reasons for joining? How big or small was it? I joined Lumax in January 2015. The opportunity to work with young team of Mr Deepak Jain and Mr Anmol Jain and the seasoned professional Mr Vineet Sahni was reason enough to join Lumax. 2. How has been the journey so far? What all changes were made? What were the challenges faced? How the industry has changed over the years since your association with Lumax? It’s been a great journey working with this organisation. I started in Lumax as Head Cost Management, sometime later I was offered to head corporate materials and I accepted it. This was a new work area for me and I took it up as a challenge and was able to deliver successfully. My biggest challenge was that I came from a different business vertical and here we had multiple suppliers and it involved a lot of technical negotiations as well. A new role in a new organisation, brought a new set of professional challenges for me. With this team we have achieved many milestones.

Acceptability of Indian company by global supplier partner was very low Initially. However, over years Lumax has become a brand to reckon with supplier partners, now they are eager to work with us. They understand the Indian market and our relationship with our customers, the kind of volumes that we deal in. Many suppliers are joining us after receiving positive feedback from the market how respectfully Lumax treats its suppliers and timely payments. We have different platforms to connect with our suppliers, management has also been very supportive and is always available to address any concern - Sadbhav, annual supplier conference, Innovation Day (where select suppliers have been invited to display their innovative product solutions). Supplier portal helps monitor business real time. Regular training and upgrade sessions are organised to support the supplier teams also. We also support them when new plants are being setup along with OEMs. 4. How the industry has changed over the years since your association with Lumax? Has the no. of suppliers over the years grown or we have consolidated the number of suppliers? What is the average purchase now and how do you wish to achieve in the next few years? The industry in the past seven years has tremendously evolved and so has the company. We initiated many changes in Lumax like remarkable cost drives internally and with suppliers, consolidation, economies of scale. Adding new suppliers, consolidation of small suppliers, adding value to the existing suppliers to bring in economies of scale. Competitive edge has been created in the industry. We started with a key component polycarbonate which earlier had a single source, we invited proposal on cost competencies and received good results and as they say, the rest is history. At the Group level we have reduced the number of suppliers and increased average buying per supplier. New and quality suppliers have been added.

KNOW YOUR LEADER


From Rs 1 crore per supplier to buying worth Rs 2 crore has been achieved, the next target is Rs 5 crore. 5. What are focus areas in the next two-three years to ensure that we achieve the targets set by us at the Group level? Our key focus areas are Benchmarking, Raw material Cost Reduction, Technology Advancement and Zero Defect supplies to Lumax. We are committed to make Lumax a benchmark for Indian component industry, benchmark in raw material cost percent. We aim to create a healthy and happy supplier for this we strive to keep a smaller base with larger volumes thus giving us economies of scale. Suppliers have supported as when a new plant has come up by Lumax. 6. What were challenges faced during the COVID situation in terms of supply chain? Lockdown and the period after, it were a bolt from the blue. We faced many challenges during this time like partial working, cross border restrictions impacted imports, difficulty in interstate Logistics, increase in Lead time, price increase, inventory management, due to all this customer schedules were disrupted. But I am thankful to my team who did extreme micromanagement to get the ball rolling. 7. What is the percentage of import from China? How have things changed post-covid? China still commands a dominant position wrt imports. An internal plan has been proposed and is under consideration regarding de-risking from China. We still depend on China for electronic components, but have managed alternate sources for other components from Thailand, Korea etc. Our focus on localisation is stronger than ever and we have seen good traction here. 8. Overall, what the challenges we are facing in terms of de-risking of child parts, and what is our strategy to overcome them?

just vendors and together we aspire to evolve from good to great. As an organisation we listen to the voice of the supplier. We support them and hand hold them technically and in many other areas like safety, cost control, new areas where they can evolve, set up new factories depending on their financial capability. We are a preferred customer to many suppliers now. I would like to share that we have 16 suppliers who have been with us for more than 30 years in continuity. We also have dedicated suppliers catering only to Lumax. It is a testimony of our strong bond with our suppliers. We have a dedicated supplier quality assurance (SQA) team to handholds, guide them to improve productivity, efficiency, quality. We align them with customer programs with OEMs like Maruti, Bajaj and Mahindra, monitor and encourage them continuously. Safety team has been setup and it works in areas of health and fire safety with 70 suppliers. This creates safe work places and also strengthens the relationship amongst the stake holders. 10. How aligned are our suppliers to the different ACMA clusters such as Safety, Technology, Quality, etc.? We have 17 suppliers in various ACMA clusters. Our approach towards our suppliers is welfare centric. We encourage them towards capability enhancement and technology upgrade. 11. As a Purchase head of the entire group, how difficult is the job for you? Are there any specific goals that you wish to achieve? Supply chain as a department runs in synergy with all other departments like marketing, manufacturing, finance, engineering. It is essentially team work and I have been very fortunate to get strong support all through. Sustainability, uncertainty, and end-to-end connectivity have been the biggest challenges last year and will continue to be.

We have alternate sources and are working towards finalisation wrt de-risking of child parts.

I aspire to see Lumax as a preferred customer for all my suppliers, satisfied suppliers who enjoy working with Lumax and offer zero defect, and Lumax as a benchmark for our Industry.

9. Every supplier has a journey – starting from association to building the relationship, long term partnership, etc. how do you see Lumax doing in terms of that. Are we doing good, if not what would you like to do?

12. Cost Reduction is one of the major factors to stay competitive. How does Lumax work with the suppliers to ensure there is reduction of costs without compromising on quality? Your approach towards Zero Defect Supply.

We consider our suppliers to be our partners and not

To be cost competitive each expense head as to

monitored closely. Monthly reviews are held and SQA sends quality report. Those found not at par, we handhold them to up their quality quotient. Cluster programs with OEMs provide quality and productivity improvement. A DOJO room has been setup at supplier end where all new recruits undergo 3 to 7 days training before starting their job. 13. What is the RMC reduction target and what are the steps that are being planned to ensure we achieve the same? In last 5-6 years we have significantly reduced the RMC by 5-6% on an average . We have set a steep target of 1% reduction on a YOY basis. We are constantly working towards building economies of scales, identifying alternate sources and quality material and introduction of healthy competition that works towards benefiting the organisation. 14. When it comes to materials and new technology, how closely do we work with our JV partners to localise or reduce costs? How much impact the government eco-system of self-reliance will be there on the future goals, will our net imports likely to reduce?

By 2024 all our plants will be functioning on renewable energy as per the permissible limit prescribed by the state electricity board.

We have roof top 4.4MW solar energy setup across plants in the group, have recently entered into a public private agreement to get 9MW power in Bangalore from Aril, 2022, 3MW at Pune and another 0.5MW in Haryana and one more 10MW is on cards. The second Covid wave impacted everyone. Lumax along with its 150 suppliers provided selfless support with hospital assistance, medicines, oxygen, plasma, ventilators, vaccination drive. Close to 50 families got immediate assistance. A prominent hospital was supported with ventilators, oxygen, monitors, bi-paps etc.

We have been closely working with our JV partners to identify new sources and leverage each other's strengths. These are finalised after OEM's approval. A change in raw material for dye casting has been proposed to high engineering plastics which will help reduce weight , cost and is environmentally friendly. We are dependent on imports of many raw material as they are not available in India. The Indian infrastructure needs an upgrade to offer a level playing field. 15. Today, understanding the business scenario, a lot of focus on reduction of fixed expenditure, can you throw some light on the measures being taken? Also, Renewable energy is a focus area for the organisation, how long do you think it will take us to ensure maximum energy efficiency or achieve maximum level of energy conservation? Business was hit by pandemic and uneven demand. We have worked a strategy to combat the impact and achieve our business target. These include energy, repair, inventory reduction, localisation, engineering & manpower cost reduction and productivity improvements, raw material customer recovery etc. All are working towards it. For the last three years we have been harnessing sources of renewable energy- solar, wind, hydro.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY


CSR ACTIVITIES FOR APRIL TO JUNE 2021 DURING COVID - 19 While in March 2021, we thought that COVID was behind us, the new financial year started on a very solemn and dark note. The rapid increase in Corona virus cases in India took us by surprise. No family was left untouched by the virus, it affected everyone, we lost close friends, families, colleagues, neighbours. The COVID-19 second wave was terrifying. During these unprecedented times, we needed resilience, patience and large-heartedness to tide over this misery and support the suffering. Lumax Charitable Foundation in this time of crisis, committed their support to implement various COVID-19 relief measures, utilising the funds to support and strengthen healthcare by distributing Oxygen Concentrators and Ventilators, participating in contribution towards PSA plants for Oxygen generation and ration to the needy. Personal protective equipment, masks and sanitisers were also provided to the schools that the foundation is engaged with.

DONATION OF OXYGEN CONCENTRATORS As the country grappled with a serious health crisis owing to the second wave of COVID-19, the organisation also deployed its CSR funds towards medical equipment at various hospitals to ease pressure.

Lumax Industries Limited, Bengaluru donated Oxygen Concentrators to Ramnagara District Health Officer through Bidadi Industries Association for the upgradation of Public Health Centres in June, 2021

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY


EDUCATIONt Owing to COVID-19 and the lockdown, many changes were witnessed in the way the world operates and it took some time for everyone to adopt to the new normal.

They continued to have online planned sessions on life-skills covering topics like – Effective communication, problem solving, Interpersonal relationship skill and stress management etc. Career counselling session were also conducted with the students to answer their queries and help them with choosing the right career path.

COLLECTIVELY ADDRESSED THE PANDEMIC'S SECOND SURGE

The second wave of COVID19 was setback for the entire nation. It hit us when we were beginning to recover and brought us back to the beginning. The wave was bigger than the first one and deadlier. We lost several of our colleagues and members of our extended family. However, unlike the first time, we knew more about COVID19 and preparedness against it did save many lives.

The steps taken at Lumax-DK Jain Group to address the COVID19 crisis involved our Doctor on board - Dr Atul Chauhan who helped steer through these rough waters. He not only interacted and addressed the queries and doubts of all the people. He was the single point contact for all the employees across the country to get responses on the illness, symptoms, do’s & don’ts, hospitalisation, busting many myths and misconceptions, etc. Dr Chauhan also conducted sessions and interacted with people to generate awareness on vaccinations and help overcome their hesitancy, clearing misconceptions.

Launching its first on-site COVID19 vaccination camp in April, the Lumax-DK Jain Group has vaccinated over 82% of its employees including associates and their families.

ENVIRONMENT DAY OBSERVATIONS GCEO’S MESSAGE ON ENVIRONMENT DAY The spread of COVID-19 has heavily disrupted the lives of many around us and prompted us to relook at our environment. Differentiate our Needs from our Wants. Like every year, we observed World Environment Day on the 5th June, which is the United Nations' primary initiative for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of the environment. This year marks the launch of a campaign for the next decade to ensure restoration of the planet Earth - Reimagine, Recreate, Restore. Today, as we all emerge from the ongoing global pandemic, there is increasing recognition that healing from the pandemic can also be associated to the healing of the planet. The recovery from this pandemic is giving each of us the opportunity to shift our focus to create a greener, cleaner environment. As we move forward, we are focused on our corporate responsibility priorities towards sustainable and renewable power generation, water conservation and other means of protecting the environment. We are moving towards electric mobility and hybrid vehicles to reduce pollution in the cities, make them greener, plant more trees around us, and clean up rivers and coasts.
