Khodrocar - With the outbreak of war imposed on auto companies, their priority was to help the war fronts, and as a result, most automakers began producing cars that could be assisted by military forces. During the war, circulation of automobile production was still low, and auto factories served the fronts.
During this period, while the control of major automobile factories was controlled by government executives and the state of war, the government's major investment focused on developing heavy and freight cars so that automakers could avoid the war fronts.
So that the production of command jeeps and cannonballs was done by car companies. Such actions by car makers in line with their social responsibilities have taken a different form today and as the state and government are involved in the fight against the Corona virus, they have shown themselves in the form of health products.
"The history of this practice among car makers goes back to the years of war and the manufacture of war parts, and now they carry out their social responsibility on the health front by producing hygiene products.” Amir Hossein Kakaei, expert of auto industry told khodrocar reporter.
"Some of these responsibilities are written and others are unwritten, while production associated with the loss of automakers over the past two years has been aimed at protecting consumer rights from other social responsibility of automakers but not seen by the public and officials.” He said.
"The use of the capacity of subsidiaries in addition to continued production activity in automotive companies with the aim of fulfilling the obligations under the closure of all offices and factories is also a sign of their responsibility.” He mentioned.
"In a complex such as Iran Khodro, there are about 30,000 and Saipa staffing between 20000 and 30000 people, with all kinds of preventive measures being taken for all of them, with the consequent reduction in social tension.” He said.
"The actions taken by the two major carmakers are seen by the public as a private-equity stakeholder, and they are fulfilling their social responsibility to serve their customers and society with the least amount of stress.” He called.
Car makers are not new to social responsibility and have done so in different formats at any given time, and are still struggling to utilize their capacities under current circumstances.
