MUL has its in-house R&D facility and a fully equipped design studio that creates innovative and vibrant designs for towels in line with prevailing international trends and forecasts. The studio is equipped with CAD system and is managed by well known and talented designers.

The management of the company also keeps a tab on the international trends by attending various international fairs & conferences.

The company's continued focus on R&D has resulted in several approvals of its products in developed markets and significant progress in its initiative.

MUL has a complete and integrated towel manufacturing facility which makes its products internationally compatible in terms of quality and price. It also helps to reduce production lead time to a considerable extent.

It is now all set to carve a niche for itself in the competitive international market by exporting world class products.

FORGING NEW RELATIONSHIPS

Having consolidated its infrastructure and strengths, the company is planning to expand and grow its overseas market in times to come. It plans to forge mutually rewarding business associations with its potential clients. For this purpose, it has chalked out an ambitious plan. The management of the company is committed to provide its clients reliable and quality products at competitive prices and thus nurture enduring relationships with them.

The change in the international/local Govt. Policies do have its significant impact on the business of the company in the international as well as local markets, thus, effecting the volume of sales including the exports of the company.

The management is pleased to inform the members that the company currently has an order book of INR 240.00 Crores in hand as at the beginning of the new financial year 2012-13. The company is likely to set a new benchmark in sales for its manufactured products.

RISK & CONCERNS

At MUL, all key functions and divisions are independently responsible to monitor risk associated within their respective areas of operations such as production, finance, insurance, shipping, legal and other issues like health, safety and environment.

Cylinders and terry towel products are globally traded commodities and their prices are subjected to international market forces of demand-supply and other factors that influence price volatility. With these two businesses presently accounting for the major proportion of MUL's revenues, changes in global price levels will have an impact on the company's performance.

As per global trend, all labour intensive manufacturing activities are being discontinued in the developed countries and are now shifting to developing countries wherein India is a preferred destination specially of products like Cylinders & Towels. The company is in an advantageous position as far as products manufactured are concerned.
