This strategy would not only fast-track Ducon India’s organic growth but would also add critical size and capabilities to its current business.
Commenting on this announcement, Mr Aron Govil, Chairman of the Company said, “While our India growth strategy is likely to continue its growth momentum, the global inorganic strategy will add stimulus to growth scale and capabilities to our business.
