Mumbai, India: 1st August 2022:

India’s leading manufacturer of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging, Brilliant Polymers has announced a large-scale capacity expansion in the form of a new state-of-the-art plant at its site in Ambernath, Maharashtra. The new facility, which was inaugurated on 2 July 2022, will double the company’s production capacity and represents a significant milestone in the ongoing transformational growth journey of Brilliant Polymers. The recipient of several prestigious business growth and innovation accolades (including The Financial Times High Growth Companies Asia-Pacific and The Economic Times: India’s Growth Champions Award for the 100 fastest growing companies in India) the new facility leaves the company poised for a period of market domination.

Speaking on the occasion, Managing Director Gaurav Talwar, said,

The capacity expansion comes at an opportune time as the flexible packaging industry continues to expand and the demand for our products remains high. With the completion of the second plant, Brilliant has further strengthened its position in the Indian and global markets. We are confident that our Promise of Technology, Quality and Service will continue to give us an edge.

With an investment exceeding 100 Crore Rupees (US $12.5 Million) in the new plant, the company’s total capacity at the Ambernath site has doubled to 45,600 Metric Tons which makes it one of the world s largest single sites for the manufacture of laminating adhesives. Mr. Talwar further added that This investment is backed by a strong conviction in India’s growth potential as well as a deep and nuanced understanding of the market dynamics of the flexible packaging industry. We currently supply between 2.5 to 2.7% of the world s requirement of solvent-based and solvent-free laminating adhesives; with our new capacity we expect to increase our share in the global market to over 5%.

Brilliant Polymers started operations in 2013 and since then has grown to become the largest manufacturer of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging in India with a reputation for developing some of the industry’s most innovative and robust products. With the new capacity the company aims to strengthen its grip in global markets as well as in new technologies.

Plant 2 Inauguration

The inauguration was attended by all Brilliant team members who, along with members of the Board, conducted a puja followed by a ribbon-cutting and walk-through of the new facility led by the Managing Director. Dr. Ravinder Talwar, Chairman of Brilliant Polymers said, The opening of Plant 2 is an important landmark in the history of Brilliant Polymers and the investment represents the company’s long-term commitment to its customers, employees and business associates in the country.

The new plant is controlled by a cutting-edge DCS system. Large batch sizes of up to 35 tons enhance capacity, quality and ensure significant economies of scale.

Innovation and New Products

In addition to the increased capacity, the new facility brings increased capability. Plant 2 will allow the company to further step-up its R&D initiatives with the launch of several new products in the solvent-based and solvent-free adhesives space planned in the coming months. New high-performance solvent-based adhesives including applications such as retort and high running solids of 50 55% solids are also in the pipeline. In the fast-growing solvent-free space, the company intends to launch new low monomer products made with pure MDI. These offer extremely fast chemical and physical cure rates with very rapid PAA decay times: a must in todays regulatory scenario. Along with these benefits comes the robust and user-friendly nature of products that the market is used to seeing from Brilliant Polymers.
