STANDARD Electricals Ltd, one of the leading companies in the switchgear industry, is planning to upgrade its R&D facilities so as to make a strong presence in the exports market.

The company has earned Rs15 crore from exports last year, which is expected to touch Rs 20 crore this year, Mr K.L. Malik, President (Marketing) said at a press meet.

At present, the company is exporting to countries such as UAE, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Kenya and Australia, he added.
