Windsor Machines Management Discussions

A. Industry Structure and Development:

As you are aware, your Company has been engaged in the manufacture of Extrusion Machinery (for Pipe and Blown Film Extrusion) and Injection Moulding Machinery. As we all know, the year that went by was unique and challenging in every aspect and still continues to do so. We at Windsor were severely impacted by the various challenges posed from time to time. However, with persistent and sustained efforts our Team managed to combat the various challenges and achieve a respectable business performance at the end of the financial year.

B. Opportunities and Threats:

In-spite of the current situation with the Pandemic impact on businesses worldwide, our TEAM continues with its efforts to explore opportunities within this situation. Plastic has once again proved to be the "Go-To" material and this was amply demonstrated during the current Pandemic situation.

With renewed focus and awareness on Hygiene and Safety, we saw a rise in demand for plastic products and thus resulting in increased demands for plastic processing machinery. However, the expectations of our esteemed customers is to have ready stock machines available. This has posed the manufacturers with a challenge on reviewing their resources, reworking their budgets and plans for the coming year/s and also relooking at their existing business models. We at Windsor have taken various initiatives to address these challenges and meet the customer expectations of shorter delivery times.

C. Product Wise Performance :

Gross sales

Product 2020-2021 2019-2020
Extrusion Machinery 14,518.38 12,436.18
Injection Moulding Machine 13,816.45 11,612.01
TOTAL 28,334.83 24,048.19

D. Outlook:

With the "New Normal" being set, we expect a challenging future ahead. We foresee increased demand for our machinery, especially in view of the increasing demand for plastic products (in the current pandemic situation) and constraints/challenges on importing machinery. This opens up a huge opportunity for domestic machinery manufacturers and if we are to cash in, we need to relook at our business strategies, set robust planning processes, be flexible and ensure optimum utilization of all available resources. This calls for new investments, expansion of facilities, upgradation of skillsets and technologies to combat the challenges posed.

E. Segment Information for the year ended March 31, 2021:

Extrusion Machinery:

Pipe Segment: With the thrust and initiatives taken by the government for strengthening the infrastructure segment, we did forecast increased demand for Pipes (PVC and HDPE). However, the growth was not as anticipated due to the pandemic impact wherein new investments were kept on hold / delayed. Further with the increase in PVC resin prices coupled with limited availability did pose a big challenge for new investments and expansions at our customer end. We however remain optimistic and hoping that the resin prices and availability would stabilize in the near future and business would bounce back with growth in the coming years.

Blown Film Segment: Our market share for this product segment has been increasing over the years. Now, with the "New Normal" being set and awareness getting increased towards "Hygiene" and "Safety", we foresee an increasing demand for effective packaging of food products and other items.

With our continued efforts on New developments and customization towards offering complete Turnkey solutions to our end customers, we foresee a bright future for this business in the coming years.

Injection Moulding Machinery:

With successful stabilization and acceptance of our "Two-Platen Machines", the business has been increasing. In-spite of the Pandemic impact, the demand for Injection molding machinery has been increasing especially in view of the constraints on imports of similar machinery. New investments are being envisaged and we foresee a substantial growth in demand over the coming years.

Meanwhile, Windsor continues to explore newer avenues of applications and developing suitable machines and technologies to keep abreast of the competition. Brief Data/Information for segment are given below.
