Commenting on the company's performance, Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director, ABB India, said “The first-three months of the year continued to be impacted by the effects of the Covid19 pandemic and the subsequent supply and demand disruptions across several market segments. At ABB India, we continue to keep our employees’, contractors’, suppliers’ and customers’ health and safety as our highest priority. With a stable and growing order backlog, robust cash reserves, cost optimization initiatives and business continuity plans, we believe that we are reasonably positioned to deliver on our ambitious goals while managing renewed market uncertainty.”
