The year 2007 witnessed expansion in geographical market beyond India and shipment of products to Bangladesh, China and Indonesia.
Founded in 1945 by K.P. Bhargava, Associated Chemicals Industries initiated its operations with the production of surface-active agents for textile and leather industries.
The countrys first industrial city, Kanpur, was counted amongst the premium centres both in India as well as abroad for the manufacturing of vegetable tanned leather. To compete in this growing market, the company began with the production of fat-liquors based on sulphated and sulphonated oil as well as their blends. The company was the first to bring forth fish oil-based fatliquors to the tanners in Agra and Kanpur.
In the following two decades, in the 1950s and 1960s, ACI established itself as a trusted manufacturer of fat-liquors and allied products. In the mid-1970s there was an alteration in the Kanpur leather industry as tanners began manufacturing chrome-tanned leathers. In the meanwhile, textile companies began shutting their manufacturing facilities and this motivated ACI to maintain its focus on the production of fatliquors.
Investments were made to strengthen R&D of new chemicals. This consequently paid rich dividends as new products were manufactured that were in high demand specifically from leather makers who had overseas orders. ACI had to effectively gear up to meet the increasing needs of the market and accept the challenge through its own research and development in coordination with Central Leather Research Institute, Chennai to gain knowhow of fatliquors based on sulphated, sulfited oils as well as esters.
By the mid-1980s the company began with the production of a range of synthetic and semi-synthetic fatliquors. In the early 1990s, one of the companyÃƒ¢Ã‚€Ã‚™s sister company began marketing leather finishing chemicals of one of the well-known companies, Pidilite Industries Ltd., biggest chemical makers in India. In the year 2000 it started production of a new range of fatliquors.
