Speaking on the development, KK Modi, Chairman & Managing Director – Indofil Industries Ltd and Chairman – Modi Enterprises said, “We are very excited about this partnership with Reagens. Both companies have complementary strengths which can be leveraged to bring sustainable solutions and products used in PVC and CPVC polymers. We hope to combine our expertise and talent and take the JV to its best potential."
Dr Ettore Nanni, Chairman of Reagens, said, “Indofil and Reagens will bring together unique assets, deep technical expertise, as well as ability to identify, scale and customize solutions. We will work together to bring cost-effective and sustainable solutions in the heat stabilizers market.”
It was also announced that the JV will offer technical support and services from its regional application laboratory centres based at Thane and Delhi, supplemented by support from existing Reagens’ facilities.
PVC and CPVC are the major thermoplastic polymers in India by quantity. Key applications include pipes and fittings (hot and cold), wire and cable, cellular and window profiles, medical compounds, and calendaring sheet applications. Even as industrialisation, emphasis on infrastructure, rapid urbanization and boost in the agriculture sector has contributed to the spurt in demand for PVC, the production has not been up to the mark.
