Manufacture of Clips
In the year 2004-2005, the company went into the manufacture of mild steel clips used in spring assemblies as a separate product since the clips available in the market at that time were of inferior quality. Initially a test market was done to assess the future requirement and because of the response, it got for the product, a full fledged manufacture of clips was taken up with the existing facility available in the company. The turnover at the beginning which was at Rs.6 Lakhs – Rs.7 Lakhs per year has increased to Rs.70 Lakhs approximately in the recently concluded financial year 2010-2011.
The future for this segment is quite encouraging that almost all the branches of the company are able to successfully market this product.
