1. Mehdi Chamran, Asadullah Rashedi and the delegate visited Crouse Co Plant 2
2. Chamran said: Crouse Company is operated on a regular basis with a scientific system and has been able to perform very well in localizing auto parts. It is also the responsibility of the government to monitor and to increase the quality and management capability; the executive responsibility should be entrusted to the private sector
3. Asadollah Rashedi said: Crouse is a desirable role model for pure Iranian thought and by visiting the plant we found out that if state-minded attitude changes in our country and private sectors are strengthened, there will definitely lead to creativity that can elevate the quality of domestic cars to the level of world quality.
The former head of the Tehran City Council and the consultant to the Islamic Consultative Assembly's [Parliament] Civil Commission, along with a delegate visited activities, production lines, and industrial equipment as well as design and production centers at Crouse Co Plant 2 Manufacturing Company.
During the visit, Nader Sakha, CEO of the Company and his executives introduced the Company. Mehdi Chamran, Asadollah Rashedi and other guests became acquainted with the activities, productivity management and quality control in the Company.
I Enjoyed Visiting Crouse
Mehdi Chamran, member of the Central Council of the Revolutionary Forces Coalition, on the sidelines of a visit to Crouse Company, expressing satisfaction with the visit to the Company said: "The Crouse Company is regularly operated with a scientific system and its management is capable. Paying attention to the quality in this enterprise is very significant, and I enjoyed visiting this plant."
"Crouse Part Manufacturing Co must be constantly evolving and keep up with new knowledge and technology in the industry," he added.
Criticizing the automakers' heavy debt to the part makers, the member of the Central Council of the Revolutionary Forces Coalition said: "The government was able to compensate part of the debt by injecting liquidity but in this situation some part makers imported from abroad, especially parts that were localized, therefore the part industry faced many problems."
Chamran emphasized on the ability to localize the production of parts in the country and said: "There is a need for more precise planning in this field; we can definitely produce everything and do not need any foreign purchases; with this view, the process of local production of the parts will have a faster rhythm. Of course, Crouse had a very good performance in localizing auto parts during this time."
The former head of the Tehran City Council cited the lack of government intervention as an important factor in part making boom, and pointed out that the responsibility of the government is to oversight and that the executive responsibility should be entrusted to the private sector in order to increase quality and smarter management ability in this sector.
Crouse Company is Managed by World Standards
Asadullah Rashidi, a consultant to the Parliament Civil Commission, also on the sidelines of a visit to Crouse Co Plant 2 emphasized on the fact that the Company is managed by international standards and said: "Turning from state-mind attitude to the private-mind sector in economical aspects, it will definitely lead to creativity that will not only keep pace with the world industrial quality, but also with presence of elites and knowledge-based companies in the industry in general, and automotive in particular, the quality of domestic cars will be elevated to the level of world quality.
He also added: "Unfortunately, due to the fact that the country's automotive industry is a subset of the government, this has not provided the conditions for young Iranian creativity and innovation to flourish in this sphere."
Rashidi described Crouse keeping pace with world standards as an admirable success for the part manufacturing company and its executives and said: "Macroeconomic decisions need evolvement and the legislative branch has to take the lead."
Criticizing the lack of a clear strategy on economic issues, he said: "A mix of economic thinking in the public, cooperative, private and semi-private sectors has led to a multiplicity of regulations; we have to lead towards the competition in the economic sphere and allow the Iranian creativity, ingenuity and genius become real.
The Consultant to Parliament Civil Commission pointed out that the government is neither a good producer nor a skilled trader, and said: "The task of the government is to make policy in the macroeconomic sphere and the executive section requires an active presence of the private sector."
He described Crouse as a desirable role model for pure Iranian thought and said: "Definitely, if a proper context is provided for what I mentioned above, even Crouse company could become a major automaker on its own."
