Business Outlook :
In last few years, there was steady increase in cost of raw materials and the increasingly unfavorable exchange rate, which used to be an issue of concern, the company has recognized this situation and has made efforts to minimize the impact of this on the business and performance for the future years. The company is now in comfortable position due to falling input prices, which are at multi year lows and stable exchange rate, thanks to the RBI.
In recent years to facilitate smooth recovery of sales proceeds, the company has adopted various recovery measures and th debtor management system have resulted in improvement in the liquidity position of the company.
The comfortable liquidity position arising out of retained earnings over the preceding few years has enabled the Company to meet all its capital expenditure out of internal generation. The surplus remaining after meeting the capital expenditure has been kept invested partly in Fixed Maturity Plans (F.M.P.) and partly in Fixed Deposit Schemes for short periods with various banks/finance Companies/ mutual funds.
The business environment has started showing certain improvement and company expects that the business environment will improve further during the current year. Joint Venture with Allgaier Werke GmbH, Germany for Mozer Type Rotary Dryers and Coolers has been formed during the year FY 14 and capital investment has been made by the Company for manufacture of these Dryers at Nagpur Plant and Company expect these hi-tech equipment and systems to make substantial contribution to the performance of the Company in the current and the future years.
The current average blended capacity utilization runs at around 50-55% and thus, the company can easily manage a turnover of Rs.200-230 crores with the existing capacities on a single shift basis.
The market demand for the products of Gear Box and Geared Motor Division has been increasing steadily during the last few years and the capacity enhancement undertaken by the Company in the recent past is expected to support the business growth in this area.
