ASICS, the Japanese multinational manufacturing footwear and sports equipment, is gradually increasing the share of its products manufactured in India to comply with foreign direct investment (FDI) norms for single-brand retail and will open its own stores in the country. ASICS India currently sources about 10-12 per cent of its total products sold from India.

The company will apply for FDI in single-brand retail after meeting 30 per cent sourcing norms and then will open its own bigger stores, ASICS India managing director Rajat Khurana told a news agency. It will look at operating a mix of both partner stores and own retail stores.

Production of apparel was started in India in 2017 and later expanded to footwear. It will take time to manufacture high -performance products in India, Khurana said. The company, which has 27 mono-brand stores in India now, plans to open 13-14 stores in India this year.

At present, ASICS India garners about 75 per cent of its sales from mono-brand stores, multi-brand retail outlets and distributer-driven business channels.

The company’s target is tripling revenue to over Rs 200 crore in the next two-three years, added Khurana. For the year ending March 2017, it reported a turnover of Rs 73 crore. (DS)
