KEC International, through its subsidiary KEC Towers LLC, has acquired an automated transmission tower manufacturing facility for ₹100 crore. This facility, with a capacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum, is located in mainland Dubai. “We believe this acquisition to be value-accretive to our stakeholders. If we had done this inorganically, it would have taken us three years in addition to ₹300- 400 crore in capital. With the Dubai port 30 minutes away from the facility, it will save us logistics cost as well as time taken for shipments. It will cut down 30-40 days, which is the time that would have taken for the company to ship from an Indian port,” said Vimal Kejriwal, MD & CEO. This acquisition takes KEC’s total manufacturing capacity to 4,22,200 MPTA, making it one of the largest globally operating T&D players.
