Currently, the company is involved with Bharat Dynamics and other component suppliers and also those in the sub-contracting business in the defence segment. The company is also hoping to bag clearances for going ahead in the anti-tank guided missiles area.
Although the proposals are in the early stages, but after the green signal, the company would establish units here in the country such as Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai.
