During past three years, the corporation has witnessed quantum jump in turnover and registered remarkable growth of 45%.
For the past four decades , ALIMCO has been working for the consistent growth in turnover by means of benefitting larger number of PwDs, year after year. However, up-gradation of product as well as manufacturing technology lost priority zone of the Corporation in the wake of concentration on increasing turnover of its existing products and expanding its reach to every nook and corner. Due to the continuous use , most of its infrastructural resources such as plant / machinery, civil structure, electrical work , manufacturing technology product profile etc. are almost on the verge of completing their life cycle or have become obsolete . In addition , over the years the corporation has been facing inadequate and inappropriate human resources. Since survival in the market depends on upgradation of quality of products, it was felt imperative therefore to undertake modernisation of the infrastructure as also the production line to meet the ever increasing challenge from the private players.
