Who is Anil Makkar?

Education: Studied at St. Johns (Class of 1974), Agra & Punjab Engineering College (Class of 1978), Chandigarh
With six plants in India and three in Mexico, the men at JK tyres have their work cut out across borders and cultures-and Mr.Anil Makkar is the man chosen by JK tyres as the manufacturing director to be a part of their core team, which includes Mr.Vivek Kamra, Mr.V.K.Mishra, Mr.Vikram Malhotra and Mr.Swaranjit Singh under the leadership of Dr.Raghupati Singhania.
Anil Makkar has the onus to drive a complex matrix of men, machines, raw materials, vendors, technology and systems to ensure that 20 million tyres are produced in the JK brand every year.
Amongst the core values that define JK Tyres is that “Excellence comes not from mere words or procedures. It comes from an urge to strive and deliver the best. A mindset that says, when it is good enough, improve it. It is a way of thinking that comes only from a power within” and Anil Makkar epitomizes these qualities personally.
He has been working with JK Tyres for 13 years and was with Goodyear South Asia Tyres Ltd. earlier in his career.
One of the most interesting comments about Anil’s personality are from Sanjiv Kumar Bose the General Manager at Energy & Carbon services “…..He is as sharp as the tips used in electron microscopes for shuffling atoms around individually, they are single-atom-wide tips. It’s physically impossible to be any sharper as far as I’m aware as that would require you to have a tip that was less than an atom wide….”
We look forward to JK Tyres delivering new products and expanding into the segments of two wheeler tyres in the near future, we’re sure Mr.Anil Makkar would be playing a critical role in JK’s plans for a long time to come.
