The board of directors of AMCO Batteries (AMCO) has elected Jayshree Venkatraman as Chairman of AMCO.

Though this would seem a natural progression in a string of succession, consequent to the demise of A. Sivasailam, Chairman of Amalgamations Group, Ms Jayshree's elevation from Vice-Chairman of AMCO to Chairmanship is a sine qua non with her involvement in the affairs of AMCO since 1993 in various positions.

Ms. Jayshree took over as Chief Executive Officer of AMCO in 2005, bringing marketing and manufacturing under her control and became its Director in 2006.In addition to her current responsibility as Chairman of AMCO, she is a Director on the Board of Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited (TAFE) and also Whole-Time Director of TAFE Access Limited.

AMCO is the first company  in India to  manufacture  train lighting batteries, telephone and telegraphic cells, stationary batteries for power houses, traction batteries and batteries for Defence.
