Godrej Appliances is aiming to grow its share of revenue from premium appliances to 25 per cent over the next three years and is investing Rs 200 crore for it, a top official today said.

Now, the share of revenue from premium products is 15 per cent, but we are targeting to increase it to 25 per cent in three years," Godrej Appliances business head & EVP Kamal Nandi said here today.

The company is investing in a new plant in Pune with a capex of Rs 200 crore that will produce only premium products.
