The senior management has also taken a voluntary reduction in their salary by 15 per cent.

We are in unchartered waters but as ‘one family’ we will work together and make the necessary sacrifices to steer Apollo Tyres in the right direction, to overcome this period. We are experiencing slowing demand and disrupted supply chains due to Covid-19. We are working on further measures which we will provide updates on, as we make final decisions.”
