Diversified specialised product portfolio requiring strong technical know-how

We have, over the years, diversified, expanded, and evolved our operations into manufacturing of pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediates and other specialty chemicals, which have diverse applications across various industries. The expansion of our product portfolio is primarily driven by the continuously evolving needs and R&D initiatives undertaken by our customers, which is further supplemented by our R&D capabilities. Most of our products form part of the base raw materials required for the manufacture of products by our customers. Accordingly, in instances where our customers seek to expand their product offerings, as part of their ongoing R&D, they request us for new products and chemicals to supplement their ongoing R&D. We believe our strength lies in the quick turnaround in developing the product sample, following receipt of request of the new product. As of December 31, 2020, we offered 37 products under our SDA product portfolio, 44 products under our PTC product portfolio, 6 products under our electrolyte salts for super capacitor batteries portfolio and 51 products under our PASC portfolio. The production of SDAs and electrolyte salts for super capacitor batteries requires strong technical know-how and sound technical expertise. Our R&D capabilities and technical expertise has enabled us to become one of the leading manufacturers of SDAs for zeolites and PTCs in the world. Our products have a wide range of applications. For instance, in a heterogeneous multi-phase system, PTCs help facilitate the migration of a reactant from one phase into another phase where the reaction occurs. Due to this, our PTCs help reduce reaction time and improves selectivity and thereby facilitate various industrial processes.

Further, our SDAs also have varied applications including as catalysts and adsorbents. In addition, the agrochemical intermediates that we manufacture form a part of various pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and such other agrochemical products. Similarly, our pharmaceutical intermediates are used in the manufacture of various pharmaceutical APIs and our other specialty chemicals are used in the manufacture of paints and coatings products, flavours and fragrance, dyes, and certain personal care products. In light of the wide range of applications of our products, we are in a position to cater to customers across various industries, including the automotive, petroleum, pharmaceutical, agro chemicals, paints and coatings, dyes and pigments, personal care and flavour & fragrances industries. We believe that our diversified product portfolio has helped accelerate our growth and in innovating the manner we cater to and thus retain both new and existing customers.
