Commenting on the performance, Mr. Vayu Garware, CMD, Garware Technical Fibres Ltd. stated, “The second quarter has seen a robust delivery in both revenue and profit propelled by our geo-synthetics and international business. There is also some inflationary effect due to the spurt in raw material prices this quarter as a result of increased crude prices. This has put some pressure on margins. However, we see this effect stabilizing over the coming months.”
