Business Profile Outlook:
  • KEIIL has a healthy order book of about Rs.2,000 Cr through its different revenue streams. The company is focusing on increasing the revenues from the retail segment due to the better profit margins.

  • To increase revenues from the retail segment, KEIL is expected to strengthen its workforce across various sales branches. The company also remains geared towards strengthening its distribution network and brand visibility through increased investments. Further, the company plans to invest in scaling up its LT, HT, and EHV cables capacity.

  • The company is expected to expand its global footprint across newer geographies and deepen its penetration in existing markets.
