New Delhi: Global industrial component and electronic products distributor R S Components and Control is seeking to expand its e-trading platform to increase turnover from India over three-fold by 2010-11.
The UK-headquartered firm is targeting the small volume supply segment customers in the research and development sector and small batch manufacturing market as part of its strategy to increase turnover to Rs100 crore by 2010-11, from the existing Rs30 crore.
“Last year we had a turnover of Rs30 crore and we are looking at a figure of Rs100 crore by 2010-11. We hope by the end of that period 25% of our sales and turnover would come from our e-trading platform,” R S Components and Control India Chief Executive Officer Shiv Bhambri told PTI.
