Vadodara based technology-based firm, L&T Technology Services has bagged orders worth over Rs 1,907 crore from January-September this year from the transportation sector on the back of strong tailwinds from electric vehicles, easing of semiconductor shortages and a spike in air travel.
Amit Chadha, CEO & MD, L&T Technology services, during a post-result conference said that the company registered 9.4 percent during Q2FY23, which was broad-based across sub-segments of auto, trucks and off-highway and aviation.
The company added $60 million during Q2FY23. An earlier deal worth around $50 million was reported in Q1FY23, in addition to $120 million in Q4FY22.
The company includes aviation in its transport vertical in addition to automotive.
