“We con­stantly en­deav­our to im­ple­ment new and in­no­va­tive meth­ods to fa­cil­i­tate bulk pro­duc­tion within the stip­u­lated time frame. Our team is com­mit­ted to the de­liv­ery of high qual­ity prod­ucts to the clients to their max­i­mum sat­is­fac­tion. De­vel­op­ment keeps us mov­ing and qual­ity keeps us ahead,” she said.

Gi­lard Elec­tron­ics plans to be a tier-1 sup­plier to the car man­u­fac­tur­ers in In­dia. “We up­grade our­selves con­stantly to cope with the new gen­er­a­tion tech­nolo­gies and cus­tomers. Soon we will be a tier-1 sup­plier to the pas­sen­ger car man­u­fac­tur­ers in In­dia. We have cap­tured mar­ket for our­selves in Philip­pines, Rus­sia, Sin­ga­pore, Europe and the US,” she added.

The brand ex­ports its prod­ucts like AC Con­trol, and con­nec­tors to Sin­ga­pore and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion prod­ucts to Rus­sia. In ad­di­tion to this, the com­pany sup­plies power sock­ets to Philip­pines and the US. The com­pany has a growth rate of 14% and an­tic­i­pates 20% growth in the next fi­nan­cial year.
