Rico Auto will supply both manual and automatic transmission and the shipment is likely to start from June 2012
Auto component maker Rico Auto said it has won an export order worth up to Rs70 crore annually to supply transmission to a global passenger car maker.
"We have recently got an export order to supply transmissions to a global passenger car maker, which is also present in India. The order size is Rs50-Rs70 crore for every year and we expect to continue this for 7-8 years," Rico Auto managing director Arvind Kapur told reporters on the sidelines of the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) summit.
The company will supply both manual and automatic transmission and the shipment is likely to start from June 2012.
"We have not decided on the plants where we will produce this transmission but we may use our Sanand unit," he said. Without elaborating, Kapur said the company will invest Rs30-Rs40 crore in the next two-three years on the export project to augment capacity of its various plants.
On the domestic front, the company will invest Rs40-Rs50 crore this financial year to expand capacity of its existing facilities. When asked about the revenue, he said the company is expecting a turnover of Rs1,250 crore compared Rs1,015 crore last fiscal.
"We are targeting 10% margin this fiscal. Last two years, we had blip in our margins but before that we were (witnessing) 7%-8% of profit margins," Kapur said.
In the late afternoon, Rico Auto was trading at around Rs13 per share on the Bombay Stock Exchange, 1.96% up from the previous close.
