Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Shishir Joshipura, Managing Director stated,
"The year 2009 started on an extremely challenging note following the global financial meltdown of 2008. The sharp drop in demand across the economy forced most industries to realign their production levels to match with the reduced demand levels. However, driven by strong domestic demand and stimulus measures introduced by Government, the decline was arrested in the second quarter followed by continued recovery from the third quarter of the year."
The Automotive sector led the recovery, while select industrial segments started their recovery from the third quarter. The year ended on a considerably higher note and we are cautiously optimistic that this trend will continue into 2010.
The company's focus on the 3Cs - Customer, Cost and Cash has helped us to become lean and agile and better geared to face the challenges as the economy gets into the growth mode. Reinforcing its commitment to high levels of quality and good practices, the company is constantly pursuing Six Sigma and TPM at all its operations, reflecting the company's continuous commitment towards quality and high standards.
