Sandhurst Road based Mark Systems, has now ventured into manufacturing of
compu-ter accessories. Marks have been involved in the manufac-turing business
since 1980, with video audio units and cable TV equipments. Now it has started
manufacturing 2-3-4 way VGA switches, spea-kers, video audio distributors and
switches, video extenders (up to 300 m) for PCs.
"It was time we ventured into this industry, as the mar-gins and
business in the cable industry are real low and is completely slack now.
There-fore, we have started with these products and are at present,
concentrating on few dealers at Lamington Road at Mumbai. Presently, we have
been doing business with dealers like Raju and Raju, who have been active
partners from the beginning," said Dilip Vora, Proprietor of Mark Systems.
In this product category, there is also strong competi-tion from China and
Taiwan as the same products are impor-ted at lower costs. "The China threat
is definitely there but, we do not want to adopt the route of giving huge cash
discounts. Partners who have been using our products can understand the
difference therefore, now they are our dedicated part-ners. No credit is given
there-fore, only cash dealings making business smooth. This part-nership is also
increasing slo-wly, as other players are show-ing interest," added Vora.
