1989 – Ahmedabad plant
In 1989, we set up our second plant at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, to produce Guar Gum with viscosity around 5000 cps. Around the mid 1990s, the installed capacity of this plant was doubled.
1997 – Gandhidham plant
In 1997, we set up a third plant at Gandhidham, Gujarat, to produce both Guar Gum and Cassia Gum. This 5 acre site now houses our newest and largest production facility and 81,000 sq ft of warehousing area. Located on India’s National Highway 8A, it is a mere 15 km from Kandla Port, and just 100 km from the state-of-the-art Mundra Port, making it ideal for export shipments.

By 2010, with new machinery and process improvements, we commenced production of Fast Hydrating Guar with Fann viscosity 35-40 cps and Brookfield viscosity up to 7500 cps.
2013 – New exclusive plant for Fast Hydrating Guar production
