The profit margin of the textile segment improved to 22% from 18% due to better product mix, higher realization and volume growth. The net sales of Files & Tools segment was up by 42% to Rs 59 crores backed by excellent growth rates in realization and higher volumes, especially in international markets.

The segmental profit was also up to Rs 8 crores from Rs 2 crores in the same quarter of the previous year. The profit margin of Files & Tools segment improved to 14% from 5%.
