This sector is catered to by innumerable smaller water treatment OEMs and is plagued by design flaws and performance issues which has become very common over the years. After immense R&D, we began our bulk manufacturing of FRP STPs a year back and our existing manufacturing unit is running at 100% capacity ever since. We thus acquired this Industrial land parcel with a vision to set up a unit with a manufacturing capacity of around 600 units per year which is around 15 times more than our existing units capacity’.

This manufacturing unit will also be used to cater to this products export demands across Asian, European and African markets.”
