DCW Ltd. (DCW) - Company History

Incorporated in 1939, DCW was taken over by the present promoters under the late Sahu Shriyans Prasad Jain. The company manufactures soda ash, caustic soda, PVC resins, soda bicarbonates, trichloroethylene, synthetic rutile, titox, utox, bromine, bromide and a few other chemicals. The company has also introduced a range of home products like packaged spices, flour and iodised salt. The Company is one of the six major producres of PVC and accounts nearly 10% of total market share in India. In Caustic Soda it is having 15% market share in South India. In Apr.'93, Pantape Magnetics was amalgamated with the company. It came out with a rights issue and a GDR issue in 1994, to install 30-MW power plant and expand the PVC plant by increasing the capacity from 42,000 tpa to 60,000 tpa. The expansion of the PVC plant was completed in 1994-95. It entered into an agreement with Lego Overseas, Denmark, to market their educational toys in India. The project to set up a 30-MW captive power plant at its factory in Sahupuram, is under implementation. In 1995-96, four out of 5 generators of 6 MW each were commissioned. In 1996-97, it proposes to set up a facility for recovering Ferrite Grade Iron Oxide from the effluent of the beneficiated ilmenite plant, In the process Hydrochloric Acid of the required concentration will be regenerated for use in the beneficiated ilmenite plant. It has entered into technical collaboration with International Steel Services Inc, USA. who have lot of experience in the manufacture of this product but the project is kept on hold as the plant with similar technology supplied to another Indian comppany is yet to be satisfactorily commissioned. A Scheme of Arrangement between the Company & Crescent Finstock Private Limited was approved by the shareholders at the Court convened meeting held on 4th August, 1997. CFPL has been converted into a Public Limited Company and steps are being initiated to issue Equity Shares of Crescent Finstock Limited to the shareholders of the Company in the ratio of 1:4 as per the Scheme already approved. The performance of Soda Ash Division during the year 2001 was very low due to high labour strength and excess supply position is a major cause of concern since it adversely affects other divisions in general and the company in particular.De-bottlenecking of Beneficiated Illmenite,Caustic Soda and pvc plants project was taken up by the company at a cost of Rs.33 crores and this has been sanctioned by IDBI. The subsidiary company has been amamlgamated with the DCW Ltd from 1st April,2000. The Company is in the process of replacing 33 old Carbonators with 3 Carbonation towers which is expected to be completed by August 2004. This will increase the production of Soda Ash by 7000 MT per annum and also the Company has increased the production of detergent to 8000 tonnes.
