More than two-third of the sales are contributed by the company’s own private label, which gives them hire margins. Notably, Infra.Market has been profitable since inception and has a revenue run rate of $700 million.

It now has customers in 10 states in India and exports to international markets like Dubai, Singapore, Jordan, Italy and more, the company said in a statement.

Founder Sengupta added that they are seeing a spike in customer’s order value as they launch new products, verticals and expand market presence. A part of the funding would be utilised to accelerate this further.
