The power equipment maker and electrical appliances maker may buy companies on the basis of customer reach as well as technological value and would not mind spending even up to $1 billion for a deserving candidate.

In March, it bought UK-based Power Technology Solutions Ltd for an enterprise value of about 30 million pounds to become a significant player in local electrical engineering market.
