MAL came into existence with a plant at Ludhiana to manufacture 50 cc mopeds, marketed under the Pacer, Panther and Ankur brands. The company went public in 1986. But in a market which exhibited a CAGR of 30% between 1978 and 1988, it was unable to make a definitive dent. Realising the need to make its presence felt, it upgraded its capacity in Oct. '88 by setting up a plant in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, to manufacture 65-cc Hero Puch mopeds. But the moment the new product hit the road, it hit something else too -- MAL's bottom line. In the period from 1989 to 1991 when it came under the purview of the BIFR, after having completely wiped off its net worth, MAL started focussing increasingly on the export market. Luckily for MAL, the turnaround was quick to come.
