Aditya Birla Chemicals (Thailand) Limited is the new name of Thai Organic Chemicals Company Limited, with effect from 1 January 2006.
Our Group's chemical business in Thailand has been serving customers in a large number of industries like food, food processing, personal consumer products, paints, textiles, pulp and paper, detergents, water treatment, metal treatment, etc.
The Group's product offerings include sodium phosphates and potassium phosphates for industrial and household detergents, metal treatment, ceramics, toothpastes and for food applications such as treating shrimps, sausages and noodles; sodium sulphite and metabisulphite for water treatment, pulp and paper, photography, gold mining and food applications; hydrogen peroxide for textiles, pulp and paper, environment, aqua culture and food applications; chlor-alkali products for water treatment, food and general industrial applications; and epoxy resins for coatings, paints, lamination, civil, electrical and composite applications.
Besides building up a strong business in Thailand, the chemical business has also been exporting about 35 per cent of its production to 44 countries across the world.
These activities of the chemical business were carried out through five legal entities viz. Thai Organic Chemicals Company Ltd. (TOCC), Thai Epoxy and Allied Products Company Ltd., Thai Sulphites and Chemicals Company Ltd., Thai Polyphosphate and Chemicals Company Ltd and Thai Peroxide Company Ltd. During 2005, we merged all these companies (except Thai Peroxide Company Ltd which is our joint venture with FMC Corporation, USA) into TOCC. To reflect the Group's commitment to the chemical business, the name of TOCC is now being changed to Aditya Birla Chemicals (Thailand) Ltd.
Bringing together all our chemical activities under one corporate entity will help us leverage the Aditya Birla brand, the knowledge base, the technology base as well as our customer relationships through a synergistic basket of products and seamless service. The restructuring provides an opportunity to multiply the strengths of our units with diverse capabilities in process technology and product application, yet serving common industry sectors.
The new name reflects our globally recognised corporate brand — the Aditya Birla Group, which has a turnover of $7.5 billion and a market capitalisation of over $8 billion. It is anchored by an extraordinary force of 82,000 employees, belonging to 20 different nationalities. We have our operations in 18 countries in five continents. The Group enjoys leadership position in all of the businesses in which it operates such as non-ferrous metals, cement, viscose staple fibre, viscose staple yarn, carbon black, chemicals, fertilisers, insulators, branded garments and insurance.
