The Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Kamlesh Patel, provided his remarks on the Company’s performance as, “In the third quarter of the current financial year, the demand of our products across various markets cemented our success as we continued to focus on value addition. The strong result is reflected by our topline growth of 29%. Our popularity has been marked in both urban and rural markets, a trend which has been continuing since the last two quarters. The former, in particular, has revived in the real estate segment from December 2021. In the Union Budget 2021, numerous initiatives were announced for injecting optimism in the housing segment and propelling demand for Tiles & Bathware products.
The Covid-19 pandemic adversely affected many companies across the globe, impacting a major part of FY21. However, the demand and production have surged after several restrictions were lifted, thereby flourishing the business environment with the hope of a better tomorrow. Our products are garnering demand in the global markets, which establishes our trustworthy and value-oriented brand image. Other crucial factors which proved advantageous for our Company were the anti-China sentiments, lesser gas prices and massive export orders from the US, European and Middle East markets. To capitalise on the growing international demand, we are aiming to expand our presence to more than 120 countries. The demands from foreign countries will be managed by AGL’s Export House.
Mr. Patel continued, “AGL has consistently delivered on its promise of value addition and cost-effective solutions, which appeal to our customers as a brand they can trust. As a result, the products have been welcomed into various markets and their demand has been very promising. In the near future, we will deploy branding strategies which will establish our dominance in the market and widen our product portfolio. Our dedication towards expanding our product offerings, entering new markets and enhancing operating efficiencies remains the same. We have set a target to increase our touch points to more than 10,000 and have 500 exclusive showrooms. The Company has drafted both short and long-term strategies to ensure its presence and demand in the market.
