Tekno Valves, which is into manufacturing high-pressure gas cylinder valves, is looking to scale up production capacity by close to 67% to two million valves in the next three years. The company produces close to 1.2 million valves a year at present and is looking to increase this to 1.5 million by December 2022.
Rohit Behani, partner and CEO at Tekno Valves, said the company has invested close to Rs 15 crore in plant and machinery this year to scale up the production capacity. It will invest an additional Rs 20 crore to take this up to two million by 2024-25.
“There has been a huge surge in demand for medical gases due to Covid-induced pandemic and this has augured well for our company. We had to change our product mix at the peak of the pandemic period with a higher skew towards medical gases. However, we are also seeing good demand for industrial gases,” Behani told BusinessLine.
The company aims to increase its turnover to Rs 200 crore by 2024-25. During FY22, the company is hopeful of achieving 40% growth in turnover at Rs 140 crore.
