Vikas Ecotech Ltd has announced that on persistence and support extended by the promoters of the company, it has initiated 2nd Phase of the Debt Reduction Program, wherein overall bank debt shall further get reduced by another 20 per cent from the peak exposure. Rs 100 million has been paid back already, and another minimum Rs 250 million shall be paid before the close of this quarter (Q4_FY22).

After completion of both these phases, bank debt shall get reduced by approx. 40 per cent from the peak exposure, paving the way towards becoming a 'ZERO debt company' in the next financial year i.e. 2022-23 Recently, Vikas Ecotech had informed exchanges that it has been diversifying to newer markets with innovative products.

As a measure of backward integration, the Company has commissioned a Steel Pipe Fittings plant, which after trial production, went into commercial production almost 2 months ahead of schedule.

With increasing economic activities and governments thrust on infrastructure development, there is a huge demand for fittings by all major steel tube manufacturers like APL Apollo, Jindal, Hi-tech, etc.

They prefer sourcing from the vendors who have inhouse steel tube fitting manufacturing facilities.

Considering it as a long-term opportunity, which not only enhances the company's revenues, product basket, profitability but also mitigates concentration risk, the company has successfully bagged commercial-scale orders.

Since the production of fittings and their supplies are much ahead of their scheduled targets, Vikas is expecting a good revenue contribution of this newly added business segment.

The company has been most recently empanelled as an approved vendor with the U.P. State Horticultural Co-Operative Marketing Federation (HOFED), a UP Govt. Enterprise.

It's the first of its kind of empanelment for Vikas Ecotech that too alongside other industry conglomerates like Supreme Industries, Advance Biocare, Stellar Polyplast etc.

Enhancements in Intellectual Property: Successful registration of a patent for the use of Nano CaCO3 in Plastic & Rubber Compounds.

The company's ultra-modern latest state of the art R&D laboratory undertook research for Nano Composites and their use in the plastic and rubber industry, the company has filed a patent for the use of Nano Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) as a multi-role additive and modifier.
