The turnover of company stood at Rs.594.25 Crore as against Rs. 671.47 Crore during last fiscal witnessing a decline of 11.50%due to steep fall in crude oil prices which warranted the Company to reduce the prices ofits products and pass on the price decline effect to clients however the quantity ofsales during financial year 2015-16 recorded growth of 4.71% when compared with the salesquantity of financial year 2014-15. Despite such downfall in turnover the company wasable to retain its optimum margins which is evident from the fact that Net profit ratio toSales rose to 2.81% as compared to 0.80% during the previous year & the EBITDA tosales ratio rose to 6.73% as compared to 4.06% in the previous year.
The company had previously planned expansion in three phases. First phase to augmentproduction capacity from 51KtPa to 67kTpA Second phase from 67KTPA to 85KTPA and in Thirdphase from 85KTPA to 150KTPA. After thorough review capacity balancing in terms ofavailable SAN and HRG and economies of scale; the company revised the expansion strategyand accordingly company planned to enhance the production capacity from 51KTPA to 200KTPAin two phases only in lieu of Three phases as envisaged/ planned earlier. In the firstphase the expansion has been kept upto 80KTPA in place of 85KTPA and in the second phasecompany will expand its production capacity from 80KTPA to 200KTPA which is proposed totake place on port based location through establishment of a new plant.
The first phase of expansion of company has been completed in the month of March-2016with a slight delay of three months than the targeted period. This has augmented company'sinstalled capacity from previous 51 KTPA to 80KTPA.
Since the first phase of expansion upto 80KTPA has already been accomplishedsimultaneously the works related to automation and modernization has also been plannedwith a view to reduce overheads material handling losses improved housekeeping improvedreliability of operations by minimizing human intervention and dependability on manpowerand computerized management information system to enable the management for takingrequisite decisions and corrective actions in timely manner based on authentic andcomprehensive data base; which is targeted to be achieved by March 201 7. Upon completionof the aforesaid automation and modernization the company shall be able to positionitself at the level of other internationally operating establishments. The elements ofworks consisted in aforesaid modernization and automation activities are enumerated ashereunder:
1. Comprehensive automation of compounding operation which so far in the company wasconfined to basic polymer manufacturing i.e. for SAN and HRG. This encompasses completeoperation control monitoring and data logging of raw material conveying extruderscharging system mixing system etc. and monitoring and data logging of extrusion ABSconveying weighing bagging and printing system using scada and PLC for which theglobally recognized vendors viz. Coperion and ABB have been entrusted.
2. With a view to achieve operational efficiency and meet competitive challenges it isinevitable for the company to replace its decades old extruders. In this regard thecompany has placed order to JSW a globally renowned extruder manufacturer from Japan forextruders of latest technology embedded with Ultra high torque high performance andversatile capabilities this will help improve reliability enhance productivity and bringin energy efficiency.
3. Warehousing facility for the finished goods is being not only expanded but beingmodernized as well by deploying selective Pallet racking system in a 12M high storage areawith racks for storage of ABS upon Pallets and using the most advanced material handlingequipment to maneuver material into and out of the warehouse being procured from India'sleading material handling equipment supplier - Godrej and Boyce.

4. In view of proposed level of operation at 200 KTPA; the company is in process ofestablishing state of the art research and development centre at Abu Road plant. Postoperationalization of the in-house R&D facility the company will be in a position toexpeditiously execute application development work which is the need of the hour due tonewer applications being envisaged resulting in fast growing demand of specialty ABS.
The next phase of expansion has been planned by company at port based location and isproposed to be completed by the end of March 2019 post which company's installedcapacity will be enhanced to 200 KTPA i.e. 80 KTPA pre-existing capacity at Abu Road plantand 120 KTPA expanded capacity at port based new plant as proposed to be established. Therequisite project work has already commenced in this regard. The decision of going portbased with the latest technology at par with other global players will render multifariousbenefits to the company in terms of minimal overheads; power saving by latest technologyadoption improved safety enhanced reliability due to complete automation and also thethreat to safety linked with the transportation of hazardous chemicals will be eliminated.The aforesaid benefits are vital for the survival of the company in the present businessscenario which is posing cut throat competition from company's Indian as well as overseascompetitors.
