The company has taken initiatives in the past to value-add most of its by-products into sellable products such as sodium bi-sulphite, sodium benzoate and hydrochloric acid, as a result of which these products presently contribute 3.5% of net sales for fiscal 2006.

The company presently has a customer base of more than 515 customers across 9 industries in 40 countries. The net sales and adjusted profit after tax for fiscal 2006 was Rs 1700 million and Rs 155.9 million respectively as compared to a net sales and adjusted profit after tax of Rs 1360 million and Rs 130.2 million for fiscal 2005.
