JK Tyre records 8 pc increase in revenue in FY-18

New Delhi, May 17 (UNI) Indian Tyre Industry major, JK Tyre and Industries Ltd (JKTIL) registered a growth of 8 percent in revenue in fiscal 2017-18.

Commenting upon the results, JKTIL Chairman and Managing Director Raghupati Singhania said, “in the year 2017-18, the sales volumes at JK Tyre grew by 11 per cent. The Company registered a growth higher than the industry at large, which helped JK Tyre increase its presence across categories especially in Truck, Light Truck, SCV, Farm and OTR Tyres”.

Mr Singhania further said the company’s margin was impacted owing to unprecedented increase in oil prices during the year.

Mr Singhania said, introduction of radial tyres in Truck and Bus JK Tyre , pioneered by his company, further accelerated to 47per cent during the year and is expected to cross 50 per cent in the coming year. JK Tyre maintained its leadership in this growing segment.

The imposition of much awaited anti-dumping duty on cheap Chinese truck/bus radial tyres was indeed a welcome step and has helped enhancing volumes, Mr Singhania added.
