In a statement, Vayu Garware, CMD, Garware Technical Fibres Ltd. said, “We witnessed a strong top line growth during the first quarter. However, the quarter also saw a further increase in raw material and input costs, which have been passed through with a lag. Raw material costs, along with a continuing lack of availability of containers to deliver some of our high margin export sales has temporarily affected the margins for this quarter. Delayed shipments have also caused an increase of inventories as of June quarter end. These materials will be carried forward to Q2 sales.

“With good movement of export orders so far in Q2 as well as a recent softening in the raw material, we expect to have a positive second quarter in FY23.

“We are also proud that GTFL’s deep connect with its team was independently recognized by the Great Place to Work@ Institute India. In 2022, GTFL was ranked 49th amongst India’s best companies to work for, across sectors. There was a significant increase in our trust index score under this survey”.
