Today, Monarch outshines as a formidable, two decade old Brand with strong foothold in the workspace industry. The last three years have witnessed stupendous growth resulting in Turnover of 200 crore for FY 2017-18, with an average revenue growth of 25 percent Year on Year.

One of aspects that propels Monarch’s business forward is its
ability to produce smart office furniture right across its manufacturing unit located at Hyderabad, spanning an impressive 2,20,000 sq.ft. of built-up area, thus demonstrating its contribution to Union Government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. As domestically manufactured products are gaining huge traction these days, Kotesh believes that Monarch is geared up with adequate bandwidth to surpass its current revenue figures by tuning with the market growth besides standing as a potential competitor for the International brands.
