Dr. Raghupati Singhania, Chairman and MD, JK Tire & Industries said, “JK Tire has achieved highest ever revenues of Rs14,681 crore during FY2023, registering a growth of 22 percent. This is on account of growth in domestic demand witnessed in key segments, viz., commercial and passenger vehicle tyres. Exports have also performed well, despite global headwinds.”
“Operating margins improved sequentially in the fourth quarter of the financial year 2023, aided by softening in input costs. We remain optimistic about the tire Industry growth path in the coming year, buoyed by an uptick in economic activities and the big push in infrastructure growth,” he added.
During the year, JK Tire’s subsidiaries Cavendish Industries and JK Tornel, Mexico performed well with improved volumes, revenues and profitability.
In addition, IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, has invested Rs 240 crore ($30 million) in the company by way of CCDs, which reflects its confidence in the future of the company and the tire industry at large.
