Elofic Industries Ltd. which has been catering to the automotive industry since it was established in 1951, entered the off-highway and CE filter segment around three years ago, having developed a range of filters for this industry. Looking at the huge potential for its filters, it plans to focus even more aggressively on its filters business in the coming years. Mr. Pawan Sharma, VP - Domestic Business, says, "Quality, market penetration, availability, and right price are what differentiate us from other brands. We will leverage our experience in the automotive segment to meet the challenges in the CE industry.
