Mac To Merge Spic Organics With Manali Petrochem

The Rs 5,479.95-crore M A Chidambaram (MAC) group has decided to merge Spic Organics with Manali Petrochemicals, a sister concern.

Both the companies produce import substitute chemicals namely propylene

oxide, polyol and propylene glycol which are used as raw materials for the pharmaceuticals industry.

In addition, Manali has improved formulations for manufacturing bicycles tyres.

Earlier known as Kamar-Petrochemicals & Plastics, Spic Organics was promoted jointly by United Breweries and its associates and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation.

In 1995-96, UB group transferred all its shares to Spic, a part of the M A Chidambaram group.

In 1997-98, Spic Organics turned sick as more than half of its networth was eroded by accumulated loss and a referral to the Board of Industrial & Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) was made.
