To strengthen the service for our consumers, we have dedicated Preethi owned service centres to provide excellent and quick service that will uphold the brand promise of Life Long Free Service.” he added.

Commenting on the performance in Gujarat he said, “The kitchen appliances market size in Gujarat is estimated to be Rs. 500 Cr in the categories Preethi operates in. Gujarat is an extremely important market for our core categories like mixer-grinders, gas stoves and induction cook tops. In 2017-18, the West Zone is expected to be the largest contributor to the overall mixer-grinder sales with a significant contribution from Gujarat. Gujarat is also a crucial market for high end gas stoves where consumers are not hesitant to
spend more for products that will provide higher value. Additionally, Gujarat is the 2nd fastest growing market for Induction Cook Tops, thus, providing a pivotal reason for further expansion in this market.

In order to affirm the decision of expansion, we are also planning to customise our products to suit the Gujarati taste, cooking style and cuisines. Though we are only 2 years old in the Gujarat market, the strong support from our dealer network have helped us register a sturdy growth. We are bullish about our plans to consolidate our retail presence in Gujarat and this new exclusive lounge in Ahmedabad is a step in that direction. The Gujarat market with a strong dealer base holds strong expansion opportunities. We believe, Preethi has the potential to become one of the top players in the next few years in Gujarat.”

Preethi mixer grinders have been exported to 18 countries worldwide and expecting strong growth potential through range expansion. Export business continues to grow with backing of Philips in markets of Middle East and parts of Africa where Preethi has leveraged the Distribution Strength of Philips.
