While the pandemic has dented the purses of many in the consumer durables sector, there are some companies that are also witnessing an uptick following the onslaught of the virus.
One of them is home grown firm, Gurgaon-based, Pluss Technologies, that designs temperature-controlled boxes for vaccine transportation. It is expecting to double its business in the next couple of months, driven primarily by the one single act that concerns humanity at large - transportation of Covid-19 vaccines.
Pluss Technologies has tied up with Dr Reddy's and is expecting to start selling around 10,000 boxes by the next couple of months.
The company is run by Samit Jain, a technology entrepreneur and engineer from BITs Pilani, who told Moneycontrol: "Our work started pre-Covid, but Covid has got us into the limelight because everybody is talking about temperature control and cold chains.”
