FY 2020 Result Impact – The Outbreak of pandemic CoVID-19 across the globe and in India has impacted Company’s operation by way of interruption in its core activities, supply chain and availability of Manpower. The Company resumed its partial operations by way of procuring orders through digital means of communication w.e.f. 4th May, 2020 and since then the operations are stabilizing.

Focus on New Product Launch

With a view to increase its product line, GG Engineering has commenced manufacturing of Automatic Sanitizer dispenser or Touchless Hand sanitizer and Sanitizing Tunnel (also known as Sanitizing Chamber). GG Engineering is a pure play in this space (i.e. the only listed company in this segment). Demand for this new line of product is growing rapidly and becoming permanent hospitals, department stores, apartment buildings etc. The product is 100% Made in India.

This line of product is available at different price range – from Rs. 75 (for 1 litre hand sanitizer bottle) to Rs. 35,000 (for a sanitization tunnel).


Other products launched by the Company for post lock-down operations includes automatic hand sanitizer touch-less, Automatic mask dispensing machine etc.


Strong Future Prospects of Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs)

Inspired by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, GG Engineering launched India’s first fully-automated and smart Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs) to enable environment-friendly disposal of plastic and other waste. The Company operates a diverse portfolio of Pet Bottle Crushing Machines. The Company aims to install RVMs at locations close to major sources of plastic waste generation such as railway stations, shopping malls, residential societies and other public places.

The Company is focused to provide machines in various configurations and capacities suitable for different types of locations.

New Revenue Stream – RVM Installation with Ad Rights

The Company has received an order from Western Railways to install and operate 25 plastic bottles crushing machines (PBCMs) across 16 train stations in Mumbai divisions. The contract awards advertising rights to show/broadcast advertisements at the PBCM kiosks. Advertising revenues will become a key revenue stream going forward with more such PBCM installation projects with advertising rights expected to be executed.

The contract also awards full rights for Pet bottle waste collection, another source of income. A single machine can collect up to 1000 bottles or 25 kgs of waste.
