INSPIRATION

Dear Friends, The Tide rises, the Tide falls, the Twilight darkens, the Curlew calls; Along the sea-sands damp and brown the Traveller hastens towards the town And the tide rises, the tide falls - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Today is a time of cautious optimism, after a long period of uncertainties that have transformed our reality. While the uncertainties in business continue to disrupt economic recovery, things now seem to be settling a bit. Overall, the environment is still sluggish; OEMs have reported a decline in sales on account of constraints in supply. However, things will look up with the festive season approaching.


We are moving towards increasing customer satisfaction through better interaction with our customers at every stage of product development and after sales commitments. We have been moving in the direction of transformation, building self-reliance in technology, expanding into newer products and segments, and becoming strategic business partners. With increased focus on innovation, becoming self-reliant in technology with the continuous support of our global partners, we expect to propel growth in the long term. Smart mobility is the buzzword and is driving technology change, customers are seeking to provide smart mobility solutions to the end consumer, we as supply partners need to also have deeper consumer insights and improved solutions. Technology is going to be the key enabler, driving future mobility solutions. We need to be cognizant of the needs of the market in the most cost effective way. Our focus on product innovation, product leadership, strong customer relationship along with strong delivery capabilities, will enable us to achieve our Vision 2027. We believe that technology creates prospects and unravels opportunities for growth. This belief gives impetus to push through the adversities and challenges to achieve our goals and create world-class products. Our teams shall always remain our core strength, with their competence, capability and dedication, we continue to navigate through these highly volatile times and provide our par-excellence solutions. Our performance has always been driven by the commitment and perseverance of our people, resilient and determined to tide over every adversity. All the best, DK Jain Chairman
