The company continued to focus on replacement and export sales and at the same time relationships with OEMs were being expanded and strengthened, Singhania noted.

We expect improved market conditions, emanating from higher inoculation levels and sharp recovery in economic activities, which is likely to improve sales in both replacement and OEM segments. Going forward we are optimistic and expect a healthy growth of the industry,” he added.

Singhania said the company continues to give utmost primacy to the well-being and safety of its employees, business partners and society and in that regard launched various initiatives.
