On the domestic front, the Company looks to cement its position as leading fastening solutions provider with capabilities to satisfy niche requirements.

The Company still faces threats from imports and other new emerging players with access to Asian markets that are creating intense competition for the companys products. Though in last couple of decades no new fastening application has been able to dislodge Hook and Loop Tape fasteners, the threat of new applications coming in cannot be entirely ruled out. The Company is thus looking to de risk itself by going in for related diversification, leveraging on its present robust domestic customer base.
