The Indian fastener market has grown exponentially over the past decade. The Indian market produces a broad variety of fasteners including round, square head, hexagonal, carriage, and many more. Fasteners are now being made more often out of stainless steel, iron, brass, aluminium, nickel, polymers, and composites and this trend is projected to continue in the future. By 2023, the market is anticipated to have grown at a CAGR of around 6.5 percent from 2018, reaching a value of Rs. 7,706 billion. Indian manufacturing sector is anticipated to create a significant amount of demand for the industrial fasteners in the future with the help of India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ‘Make in India’ push. Cashing on the rising scope of this domain is Gator Systems, established with the vision to deliver quality goods backed by timely delivery & outstanding customer service.
“Today, the major problem is the fluctuation in the prices of raw materials. This results in the shrinking of margins and thereby resulting in the deferring of CapEx plans. The customers are price sensitive and companies are unable to pass a majority of costs to their customers. At Gator Systems, we intend to bring in operational improvements and efficiency to cut cost and be competitive. Another problem is the heavy influx of low-grade and cheap fasteners from China. We provide end-to-end solutions to our customers and add great value to their operations. Additionally, having a robust infrastructure and all facilities in-house eliminates dependency on sub-contractors and puts us in complete control of Quality, Production & Delivery timelines”, briefs Ritu Siddharth Shah, Director, Gator Systems.
