CHEM-PLAS INDIA is a Small Scale Industry promoted by Mrs.K.Saroja, a woman entrepreneur who is a matriculate and hails from an economically backward agricultural family of Karimnagar District.
Her strong desire towards starting a SSI unit at IDA Jeedimetla, R.R.District with FRP components as manufacturing line has give rise to CHEM-PLAS INDIA.
It was in 1980 that the idea of manufacturing and supplying of Fibreglass items was conceived by Proprietress as there was very limited development done in the field of Fibreglass applications. Even though the FRP Components are introduced in the Indian Market in 1960, it needed 20 years of education to withstand in the market.
The Proprietress Mrs.K.Saroja has done a thorough survey in the demand on Fibreglass items during 1980 and the situation was very encouraging. With an intention to serve Defence Organisation, she has established the today’s well recognized Small Scale Industry (CHEM-PLAS INDIA) in 1981 and planned to limit the business for Defence applications as the Fibreglass items were costly and consumer durable made of Fibreglass was costliest during that period.
But, with the encouragement extended by Defence Organisation for development of their Import Substitute items specially the RADOMES, NOSE CONES, SHELLS etc., she with a dynamic staff has captured the market in all spheres of applications like Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Electronics, Engineering and Consumer Durable including defence.
Her other novel idea of taking fresh entrants as manpower and providing implant training in the FRP Field has proved well and helped both the employees and the employer.
Now, CHEM-PLAS is an ISO Certified company for its Quality Management. After 25 years of making sustained efforts and rendering meritorious services, in the field of FRP in particular and Small Scale Industry in general, today, CHEM-PLAS was recognized as the best FRP Industry in India in Small Scale Sector.
