Your Company is in the business of manufacture and marketing of welding electrodes of different grades and speciality catering to the requirements of light and heavy engineering industries. Your Company is also importing and trading in Copper Coated Mild Steel (CCMS) Wire, rutile, MIG-MAG Machine, Flux Core Wire and Flux. CCMS Wires is a substitute product over the conventional Arc Welding Electrodes.

Your company is operating in the Small Scale Sector. The demand for the companys products are dependent on the prospects for the engineering industries. During the year, the welding industry experienced reasonable growth in aggregate demand due to over all robust growth in the economy in general and engineering and capital goods sector in particular.

B. Performance

During the year ended 31 st March 2010, the overall turnover of the Company was Rs. 1805.51 laktis as against Rs.1737.96 lakhs achieved during the last year resulting in an increase in the turnover to the extent of 3.89% when compared with the previous year. The production of welding electrodes was 2484.609 MTS a against 1983.758 MTS achieved during the previous year. The traded products constituted a significant portion of the Companys turnover during the year ended 31 st March 2010.

During the year ended 31st March 2010, the profit before tax was Rs 181.65 (Rs 109.60) lakhs and after making a provision for tax amounting to Rs 64.97 (Rs 41.36) lakhs (including provision for deferred tax), the profit after tax was Rs 116.68 (Rs 68.24) lakhs. The Profit after tax has increased by 70.98% during the year ended 31 st March 2010 when compared to the previous year.

The Company continues to comply with the certification requirements of Det Norkse Veritas Management System conforming to Quality Management System Standard ISO 9001:2008 for its manufacturing facility at Redhills, Chennai.

The demand for the Companys products was reasonably good during the year under report. However, the company continues to face competition from other manufacturers and importers. The input cost of raw materials was also impacted by the fluctuation in the currency prices.

The Company has made good progress in increasing its market share and market penetration with respect to its traded products such as Copper Coated Mild Steel (CCMS) Wire, rutile, MIG-MAG Machine, Flux Core Wire and Flux and welding machines by importing the same. The trading turnover of these additional products was Rs.549.04 lacs during the year as against Rs.592.16 lacs achieved during the previous year.

Your Company continues to import and trade in CCMS Wire, rutile, MIG-MAG Machine, Flux Core Wire and Flux has also shown considerable improvement.

Your Company has also exported its products for the first time during the year. Your Company is also exploring the opportunity to export its products and also other tradeable product using its contacts with the overseas market.
