Way back in 1954, a 29-year-old trader in chemicals, with a law degree under his belt and the zeal of enterprise in his heart, started his own modest business, manufacturing a single product at Jacob Circle in Mumbai. The product was synthetic glue and the young, ambitious entrepreneur was our founder, the late Shri. Balvant Kalyanji Parekh. In 1959, deciding to get into the manufacture of industrial chemicals, Balvant Parekh named his company Pidilite Industries.
We are a service-oriented, speciality chemicals company sustaining a strong bond with clean chemistry and our customers around the globe. What began as a single-product company, is today a major manufacturer of premium speciality chemicals, serving diverse markets across the world. Pidilite is now India’s market leader in adhesives and sealants across all three business segments – branded consumer products, trade products, and industrial products.
