Tata motors that is about to launch on the global scene as the new owner of Jaguar and Land rover and a long term partner of Ford, is the other face of globalisation. At a time when the percetion is that Indian companies pay low wages and steal good paying jobs from the US, the new contract hs been given to a Incat in Michigan where they will employ lots of people.
Tata motors and Incat are the arms of the Tata group, a conglomerate that employs 289,500 people worldwide, does business in more that 80 countries and also accounts for 3.2 percent of India's GDP. The group also has 19, 500 North American workers.
Tata sold 580,280 vehicles in its most recent fiscal year. But its global ranking is likely to change.
