Management comments
Speaking about the performance, Mr. Rajesh Mandawewala, Managing Director, Welspun India Ltd., said, “Consolidation of our operations and optimization of resources has enabled us to deliver superior performance despite a troubled global economy. The large scale of our operations and constant innovations in products has helped us steer through difficult periods and this will help us to grab a bigger share of the market in the coming months.”

Environment for growth of the textile industry looks promising despite the problems that continue to affect the global economy, and the Company is strategically well placed to take advantage of that. Boosted by specific programmes for the European and US markets, the industry is now preparing itself to take a share of the opportunities that have arisen. With rupee depreciation the potential for exports has improved and further impetus from government policies the industry can benefit.
