Sanghi Industries, a leading cement producer in the Indian state of Gujarat, has reported a 33% increase in net profits in 1QFY18. Rising prices for the company’s product helped the company improve margins, offsetting higher fuel and diesel prices that affected logistics costs.

The company reported net profit of INR316 million in 1QFY18, compared to INR237.5 million in the same period last year. Total income rose 4$ to INR3.15 billion from INR3.02 billion in 1QFY16.

The company was also positive on demand for the rest of the financial year, said Alok Sanghi, Director at Sanghi Industries, driven by government infrastructure projects. The Indian financial year runs from April through to March the following year.

Sanghi Industries operates a 4.1 million tpy capacity plant in Kutch, Gujarat. The plant includes a 63 MW captive power plant, an all weather captive port and two sea terminals – one in Gujarat and one in nearby Mumbai.

In addition to Gujarat, where it is among the top three cement suppliers, the company is also targeting business expansion in Maharashtra and Rajasthan.
