Industries which has made Shendra their home includes Audi India, Škoda Auto, Volkswagen, Wockhardt, EtchON, Perkins Engines, Monginis.

Electrical goods major Siemens has set up a plant for manufacturing of bogies for locomotives, electric multiple units and metro coaches at Shendra MIDC Aurangabad.[2]
