Water Treatment Solutions: A New Business for Sharplex
The year 2012 wasn’t remarkable for most of the Indian businesses due to the difficult economic situation. However, Sharplex which caters to a diverse set of industries ranging from chemical to F&B, managed to keep its order books filled even in the challenging scenario. With the current turnover of `40 crore, the company expects to take a leap by 10-15 per cent in the next fiscal year, according to the MD. Apart from economic growth, the company also wishes to explore new avenues like the water treatment business.
“We have developed a new filter for river water filtration. Though water treatment is its main application, it can also be used for paints. The equipment is already in the market and we have made sales but we would like to explore this area further,” concluded Satish Khadke.
