New Delhi, 19th February 2024: Steelbird Hi-Tech, a leader in helmet manufacturing, proudly announces its status as the world’s largest helmet producer, achieving an outstanding sales milestone of 77,99,273 helmets globally. The company’s commitment to innovation, safety, and quality has propelled it to the forefront of the industry.

In addition to the remarkable helmet sales, Steelbird Helmet has successfully sold 3,44,865 Side Boxes, contributing to a total of 81,44,138 units sold worldwide. The group’s revenue has witnessed an impressive surge, reaching 687 crores in the calendar year 1st January 2023 to 31st December 2023.

The accomplishment is attributed to the dedication and hard work of the entire Steelbird team, along with their comprehensive in-house production capabilities. The company has produced a staggering 80 lakh helmets in the previous calendar year alone, and the ambitious goal for the current calendar year 1st January 2024 to 31st December 2024 is to reach 10 million helmet productions.

Mr. Rajeev Kapur, the Managing Director of Steelbird Hi-Tech, emphasized the company’s commitment to road safety. He shed light on the alarming statistics surrounding road fatalities in India, citing reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) stating that 300 thousand people die on Indian roads annually. However, Mr. Kapur expressed concern that the actual numbers could be much higher due to underreported accidents in regions without adequate traffic police.

“Many states and districts in our country lack proper traffic police, and numerous accidents go unreported. If we check the data with insurance companies, the numbers are much more staggering. Therefore, it is our duty to address this issue urgently, leaving no stone unturned,” stated Mr. Rajeev Kapur.

We have been a pioneer in helmet manufacturing, producing everything in-house, including EPS, buckles, stickers, rivets, and more, except for packaging. This comprehensive approach ensures the highest standards of quality and safety in each product.

As the world’s largest helmet producer, Steelbird Helmet remains committed to its mission of promoting road safety and saving lives. The company looks forward to continued success and growth while contributing to the crucial cause of reducing road accidents globally.
