Robust growth

“We have seen robust growth in domestic markets but a subdued growth in exports due to deferment in purchases by our customers. This coupled with lower commodity prices have impacted top line growth,” commented Mr Vayu Garware, CMD, Garware-Wall Ropes.

“However, profit growth continues to be as per expectation and the margins are improving significantly due to the growth of our differentiated value added products in both domestic and international markets. We expect to see an uptick in exports in the coming months thus aiding our overall growth”

Most recently the company received an upgrade from the credit rating agency ICRA to (ICRA) AA- from (ICRA) A+ basis the long-term facilities availed by the company.
