Balaji Solutions, which commenced operations in 2001 under the leadership of Rajendra Sekasaria, started as a distribution house and currently manufactures its own brand Foxin. West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala collectively accounts for nearly 59 per cent of its revenues in FY22.
During 2021-22, the company’s revenue from operations decreased marginally by less than one per cent to ₹482 crore, primarily due to normalization post easing of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
