Commenting on the results, Mr. Dilip Jiwrajka, Managing Director, Alok Industries Limited said, “In a challenging economic scenario, our performance reflects positively on the efficiencies of scale and operations that Alok has been able to implement over a period of time.

Timely expansions, integration across the textile value chain and sustained focus on quality, cost and consistent on-time deliveries have made Alok a 'supplier of choice' to demanding global customers. Alok is also well poised to take advantage of the depreciation of the Rupee vis-à-vis the Dollar and other currencies. Alok has a healthy order book and, during the current fiscal, is confident of maintaining its growth rate.”
