Sterlite Technologies says its global manufacturing capacity may reach pre-COVID levels by May-end

NEW DELHI: Data network solutions provider Sterlite Technologies is hopeful that its global production capacity will reach near pre-COVID levels by May-end if calibrated moves to reopen economies and businesses proceed as per expectation, according to Group CEO Anand Agarwal.

The company, which designs and deploys high-capacity converged fibre and wireless networks, said export shipments from India have commenced to Europe, Middle East and Latin America.

With a portfolio ranging from optical fibre and cables, network design, and deployment and network software, Pune-based Sterlite Technologies positions itself as integrated solutions provider for global data networks, with optical preform, fibre and cable manufacturing facilities in India, Italy, China and Brazil.

“We are operating at 60-65 per cent of our global production capacity…I foresee we should be back to operating globally at pre-COVID levels of capacity by end of May, unless something unexpected comes up. We are going by expectation that things will keep opening up,” Agarwal told PTI.

The company has put in place rigorous measures to ensure that staff on duty at its units adhere to social distancing norms and come in staggered shifts.

“Manufacturing is one part of business but there are many people who work on projects, then also in our software business. So people who are in software business continue to largely work from home.

“People on projects between the ones that are required to be on sites, where we have got permission in green and orange zones, are there…again from supervision, design and planning, we have balanced it out so that work continues but at the same time we don’t crowd the location,” he said.
