“While the uncertainties due to second wave of Covid and the resultant lockdowns are creating unpredictability in the product off take, we are focused on ensuring the product availability across all market segments by calibrating manufacturing operations and supply chain dynamically," Jayadev Galla, Vice Chairman & Managing Director and CEO, Amara Raja Batteries Limited, said in a release on Saturday.

“Even as we prepare ourselves for the future opportunities in both the energy storage and e-mobility applications, we remain focused on maximising the value of the lead acid business by selective investments in expanding product portfolio and the geographies we serve,'' he added.

Even as the lockdowns impacted the quarter under review due to pandemic, the aftermarket demand across product segments in automotive and industrial segments remained `strong'.

The automotive business revenue grew on the back of a ``very strong'' growth in exports and OEMs compared to last year. In the industrial business, both Telecom and UPS applications have registered ``strong'' YoY growth, it added.

The company has also announced the retirement of Founder-Chairman Ramachandra N Galla after 36 years of peerless service.

While handing over the baton, Ramachandra N Galla said: “As I prepare to demit charge and transfer all organisational responsibilities to our Vice Chairman & MD-CEO Jayadev Galla, I want to reassure all shareholders and other stakeholders that the company is in absolutely safe and in efficient hands.''
