Lohia Corp Limited IPO Strengths:
Lohia Corp Limited is the market leader in India providing end-to-end manufacturing solutions for the Raffia industry with a market share of more than 80% in terms of value and volume, in the machine segment up to the plastic weaved fabric stage in Fiscal 2022. Lohia Corp Limited is also one of the leading manufacturers globally of machinery and equipment used in the production of technical textile, in particular for manufacturing PP and HDPE Raffia, with a global market share of 17.5% across all Raffia machinery and more than 28.7% for machines used in PP/ HDPE fabric making.
The Government of India (“GoI”) has introduced several initiatives and incentives to make the industry favorable for growth. These include the Amended Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (“ATUFS”), under the Ministry of Textiles, which aims to facilitate employment, investment, quality, productivity, as well as import substitution in the textile industry while also indirectly promoting investments in the manufacturing of machinery for textiles, including technical textile.
The China plus One strategy has augmented the manufacturing sector. In the packaging industry, for instance, there is an increasing requirement for woven plastic bags for packaging foodgrains owing to the non-availability of jute bags, as the jute mills have failed to meet demands and the cost of raw jute has increased significantly.
Lohia Corp Limited provides comprehensive solutions and manufactures quality, technologically advanced machinery and equipment for the technical textiles industry. The backward integration capabilities reduce the dependence of the company on an external supply of parts and components for machine manufacturing and support services and enable maintenance of quality control required to service global and national technical textile players.
Lohia Corp Limited’s balance sheet position, healthy order book, and consistent operating cash flows will enable it to pursue its growth opportunities and also fund its strategic initiatives. The company expects that its operational and financial performance will allow it to capitalize on the tailwinds in the industry in which it operates.
