The iconic brand Godrej Locks & Architectural Fittings and Systems
(GLAFS), a business unit of Godrej & Boyce, the flagship company of Godrej Group, also
completed 125 years this year. The Godrej brand embarked on the journey with locks and today
that legacy is being carried forward with a focus and investment towards innovations in
technology and design.
A pioneer in product innovation, Godrej locks caters to the Indian market with 200+ number of
products. The Brand has been at the forefront of revolutionizing the fundamental concept of a
locking device and plans to grow twice as large in five years; to Rs 2500 crore by FY’27. The
company’s present business revenue is 900 Cr, and is projecting a revenue of 1000 Cr for the
fiscal year 2023. Driven by significant increase in demand for digital locks, the brand is poised
for the imminent growth. To cater to this demand, the brand also introduced ‘Catus’ range of
Digital Door Locks which are not just technologically superior, but also offer great value for
money. To further support revenue growth, the brand will invest in market expansion, deepen
market penetration and, also focus on brand promotion.
The company aims to be among the top three brands in the architectural fittings and systems
industry in next three years. The architectural fittings category is a 10,000 to 12,000 crores
market. The company is now concentrating on broadening its selection in the architectural
fittings sector, and aims to cross INR 400 Cr in FY23 with advance design solutions that are
tailored for the Indian household. GLAFS also introduced Neu-Lift Bed Fittings and HIKIDO
wardrobe fittings, which introduce futuristic design and customizable solutions. Additionally,
the brand also offers Smart Kitchen Drawers and Organizers (SKIDO), a cutting-edge line of
organizers, drawers, corner solutions, under-sink solutions, and grain storage for Indian homes.

consistently placed emphasis on enhancing customer satisfaction which has always led to
opportunities in expanding markets. In our 125th year, we are happy to announce that we not

will be focusing our efforts across categories. We plan to cross INR 400 Crs in the Architectural
