Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd. (Godrej Group) will look at more acquisitions in consumer space, Adi Godrej, Chairman of Godrej Group, said. He said, “We keep looking for strategic acquisitions that fit into our 3/3 strategy, which spreads in three continents on the developing world and in three areas which we are strong are hair colour, household insecticides and personal wash.

Godrej Security Solutions Launches Matrix Safe with I-Warn Technology

Godrej Security Solutions (GSS) unveiled its pioneering innovation- the Matrix safe with I-Warn technology. This is India’s first home safe that has an in-built vibration sensor that triggers off an alarm if it is being tampered with and sends instant SMS alerts or recorded voice messages to pre-registered phone numbers. The technology for the safe has been completely built in-house at GSS. The need to reliably secure one’s valuables and documents has increased significantly due to increased affluence, a rise in the number of nuclear families and time spent out of home. This is where the Matrix safe with I-Warn technology steps in. It enables a home owner to be alerted about an attack on the safe via his mobile. The Matrix Safe with I-Warn feature is available across multi-trade outlets and showrooms across the country.
