Commenting on the winning strategy he added, “The key to our success rests on 4 areas:
First, our investment in the largest vertical integrated manufacturing unit which has helped us to ramp up our production within a very short span. We had already reached 80% utilization in Wk4 May itself and in June we continued to operate at optimum level.
Second, being a tech savvy company, our entire supply chain is technologically enabled. We have a complete end to end supply chain management solution in-house. All our 24 depots spread across the states are inter-connected enabling us to keep a track of the tractor delivered on real time basis and we manage our production as per the consumption. This has helped us to maintain optimum level of stocks across our depots and dealerships.
Third, our focus to keep innovating, developing and launching new product continued during the time of COVID-19. We had a series of new products that were launched during this period, which have helped the farmers immensely to increase their productivity, reflecting in volume gain for our tractors.
Fourth, we keep strengthening our coverage. Last year, we widened our existing network of channel partners and are continuing to do so even now. With this we have the largest network of channel partners, as wherever there was a business opportunity our teams were present to capitalize on the same.”
Speaking on Sonalika’s future plans, he said, “The tractor demand and farmer’s sentiments have picked up on account of various conducive factors like government initiatives including increase in MSP price, favourable monsoons and bumper sowing of summer crops. The farmers are happy with the money in their hands on account of a good rabi harvest. This positive sentiments are expected to continue and we are well positioned to gain from the same. We are the no.1 brand in exports from India, thus making our Nation proud globally. We take pride as Indians and are ready to challenge any situation with Sonalika’s Passion and Unstoppable spirit. All our efforts and actions are set to continue on this growth journey for our great Nation.“
