Our constant endeavor towards maintaining a high degree of cost efficiencies has also enabled us to soften the impact of cyclicality associated with the business. Favorable domestic and international factors in general have aided the sector by keeping the raw material prices steady during the period. In addition, our innovative R & D enables us to broaden our sourcing capabilities, thus strengthening our ability to mitigate volatile raw material prices over the years.
While the economy at present continues to reel under pressure, we are optimistic that the Company’s current implementation of capacity addition and modernization will further consolidate its position within the industry and enable us to deliver healthy financial performance going forward.”
