FARIDABAD INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION
Faridabad Industries Association was established in 1952 by a group of enterprising industrialists. This Association has emerged as a front runner for the entrepreneurs of the Faridabad Complex. The Association plays a very constructive role by creating the right rapport between the industry and the Government.
In 1965-66 the erstwhile Punjab Manufacturing Organisation was merged with Faridabad Industries Association to form a larger organization to represent the small medium and large scale industries in this area. Over the years, the Faridabad Industries Association having about 500 members has become one of the most effective and out spoken industry association in the Northern Region. Faridabad can boast of large number of MNCs and prestigious industries, prominent among JCB India Ltd., Whirlpool of India Ltd., Goodyear India Ltd., Showa India Ltd., Tokai Imperial Rubber India Pvt. Ltd., Escorts Ltd., LakhaniArmann Group of Industries, Indo Autotech Ltd., Sadhu Forging Ltd., Bata India Ltd. to name a few.
Besides, helping the industry in terms of getting their views across to the Government and addressing individual company’s grievances, the Faridabad Industries Association is also involved in various Corporate Social Responsibilities like Environment, Sports, Cultural, Rural Education, Blood Donation camp etc. Our most recent activity is the construction and equipping a Mental Health Care Centre to cater to the mentally disturbed patients in and around Faridabad. This Centre was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister Haryana in October, 2013.
The Young Entrepreneurs Panel primarily consisting of the second generation entrepreneurs have their roots firmly entrenched in Faridabad. This Panel also encourages Final Year Engineering Students of various Engg. Colleges located in and around of Faridabad to promote innovation by awarding suitable prizes to best Engg. Projects in the field of Mechanical, Electrical & IT streams. The Panel is continuously conducting blood donation camps and the Best Engg. Project scheme for the last 10 years. As a part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebration, our Young Entrepreneurs Panel had taken the initiative and conducted a mega Blood Donation Camp on 6th April, 2013 at the Association Office in Faridabad where over 300 units of blood was collected.
During the Diamond Jubilee Year we established a Skill Development Centre to bridge the demand gap of skilled manpower. We are in the process of getting the Skill Development Centre registered as a Vocational Training Provider aimed at imparting shall training to children who are atleast 12th Pass and then helping them to get jobs in our industry.
In association with the District Administration we conducted Faridabad Marathon 2014 on 23rd February, 2014 in which nearly 10,000 runners participated . The theme was “Green and Clean Faridabad”. The enthusiastic response has motivated to conduct this event annually.
