MUMBAI (Reuters) - Hinduja Foundries Ltd, which makes castings for automobiles, reported a marginal rise in Jan-March net profit, helped by a better product mix, and said it planned investments worth 3.5 billion rupees over the next two to three years.

The investment plans include creation of facilities to manufacture machined castings, the company said in a statement.

The company will be investing further in its research & development centre at Chennai during the year, and also in a new plant at Sriperumbudur to enhance capacity to 72,000 tonnes per annum from 2009/10.
