The company is now at an inflexion point where the investments in the Azo segment to the tune of Rs82cr will start playing out over the medium to longer term. The Azo segment adds a new growth driver to the well established blue crude business that has been our cash cow over these years and will continue to be so. The Company’s initial outreach to customers for the Azo segment has been favourable and our focus on complex products in this segment will enable us to derive value for the Company and the shareholders.
We are well on our way to becoming one of the largest pigment players by enhancing our product basket to offer a full suite of colour range in organic pigments.”
