"During Q4FY20, we had commissioned and commercialised the initial phase of our upcoming unit/ project at Dahej SEZ and had also exported few shipments to our global customers. These, and other upcoming expansions, are expected to create significant benefits as India strengthens its position and market share in global supply chains that are increasingly looking to source from fully-integrated players with no dependency on China," the company said in a press release.
"Based on our R&D initiatives, we are looking to expand our portfolio into chloro-toluene products and additional downstream chemistries such as photo-chlorination, and the like. Now, with the enhancement of our R&D capabilities, we expect to enter additional new lines of chemistry and products. The focus will be on supply chains for value-added products requiring multiple levels of synthesis and completely independent of intermediate supplies from China," it added.
On a year-to-date (YTD) basis, the stock has rallied around 35.5 per cent. At 12:38 hours, the stock was quoting at Rs 1677.05, up 2.55 per cent on BSE.
