ProcMart intends to use the funds to aggressively investigate strategic acquisitions in order to strengthen its position as a market leader and improve its clientele. ProcMart will be able to increase its capacity for contract manufacturing and further enhance supply chain backward integration for businesses thanks to these significant acquisitions.

Further commenting on the Company’s growth strategy and capital deployment plans, Sachin Jain, Chief Financial Officer & Chief Strategy Officer, ProcMart said, “Our shift towards a phygital model merges our digital expertise with tailored physical engagements, ensuring exceptional customer engagement and satisfaction. Venturing beyond our core MRO consumables into the BioFuel and Packaging sectors reflects our commitment to sustainability and the anticipation of future market needs. Our series B fundraise will be instrumental for us in building the capabilities to fuel our growth plans.”

In addition, the company plans to foray into more recent sectors outside of MRO consumables, like packaging and biofuel, grow its Indian distribution network, and bolster its global presence in Southeast Asia. The money raised will also go towards hiring new employees, implementing new technologies, and expanding into recently opened areas in India and around the world.

Commenting on their investment in ProcMart, Prateek Jain, Principal, Fundamentum said, “As a fund we are typically attracted to B2B platforms that can enable large enterprises to outsource and digitise non-core yet critical functions of their businesses. ProcMart sits very well with this thesis of ours. Anish and team have demonstrated a proven record of digitising legacy processes for indirect procurement. They have built a robust digital ecosystem for buyers and sellers, brought in ease of operations, quality assurance and significantly reduced tailwind spends for their Fortune 500 clientele. Fundamentum was attracted by the founding team’s tenacious focus on fundamentals, they have been growing 100% Y-o-Y and profitable over the last 3 years, a rarity in the current Indian startup landscape.”
