The firm is improving its technologies and expanding its capacity. The firm is implementing this transition in stages to avoid affecting general operations. In FY21, the firm replaced ageing gear with newer technology at a cost of roughly Rs 25 crore. For FY22, the firm plans to invest around Rs.60 crore in capital expenditure to streamline operations, increase capacity to satisfy market demand, and introduce new goods. PTL is nearing the end of its capital expenditures. According to management, the full project should be finished by Q1FY23.

The first phase of its belt capacity expansion has begun at its Nagpur site. The capacity expansion would not only assist satisfy the expanding worldwide demand for Pix Belts, but would also result in increased efficiency and the use of innovative manufacturing technologies to help the firm reach its long-term development goals. The business is increasing its belt production capacity at the MIDC plant by 50% to 270 million belts and 4.12 lakh sleeves per year. Furthermore, capacity at the rubber mixing facility will be boosted by de-bottlenecking. The logistics centre has been fully operating since the beginning of FY 2022-23, and it is already reaping some of its benefits in terms of reduced administrative overhead and resource duplication.

Managements Comments

In order to meet the growing global demand for the pix belts management has expressed their intent of increasing capacity and concentrating more on the value added products to achieve better sales in the coming period. 

Additionally management aspires to grow revenues of pix transmissions by 2 times in the coming three years period. However this is based on the information on the internet and we were not able to verify the exact statement given by the management.

Sectorial Outlook

The agriculture business in India is now labor-intensive, but it is rapidly transitioning to more mechanised instruments, which will likely increase demand for the company’s transmission goods.

The government has also announced big infrastructural plans and incentives for corporations to establish production in India, which would eventually lead to new and replacement market demand for the company’s products. Belts are also in great demand since they must be changed on a regular basis.


PIX Transmissions, one of the leading manufacturer of belts and related mechanical power transmission products in India with 250 committed Channel Partners in over 100 countries worldwide has total borrowing of 118 crs as of march 2022 against which company has cash and equivalents of about 30 crs with debt to equity ratio of 0.32 which seems to be quite comfortable. Additionally company has been planning expansion on account of increased demand for its products and moreover with increasing focus of the government on the big infrastructural plans it will add more to the various products manufactured by the company which are mainly used in manufacturing industries. Thus strong demand for the product and managements intent to increase the revenue in the coming period makes it worth exploring for long term. The concern we found with this company is high inventory holding of about 125 crores for which we were not able to find a justifiable reason. In case we find something will share with you.

However the stock is up over 10 times in just 3 years which could pose a risk to the stock going ahead, as normally whenever there is such run up in the price we have observed that over the period it take time while the stock continues it upward trajectory. Therefore it may take more then usual time to continue its journey ahead. As a result with long stretched time frames should only explore this company and please do not put any queries relating to stock price movements.
