From the Desk of the Chairman

"Success is often the journey not the destination."

Dear Friends
We have effectively and advantageously grown our business by focusing on the three most critical ingredients for progress & human survival - quality product, customer satisfaction and water. Water touches almost all spheres of human life and in a developing society like India with a billion-plus population the ability to provide safe & adequate water to a large proportion of the population will determine the nation's socio-economic wellbeing for the long term.

Ori-Plast's Polymer Pipes & Fittings are the perfect solution for potable water distribution requirements in residential, commercial & industrial spaces with a host of advantages over the conventional piping system. Our wide range of PVC products starting from cPVC Pipes & Fitting to uPVC Pipes & Fittings, SWR Pipes, Agri & Irrigation Pipes, Bore-well & Column Pipes to Garden hose PVC Pipes, are produced from a unique blend of polyvinyl chloride that posses the perfect physical properties desirable for hassle free water solution. The country's growing population, rapid urbanization and accelerating industrialization is driving the demand for more PVC Pipes in the coming years. There is need for accelerated capacity additions to achieve the Government of India's agenda for 'Safe water for all'. The Government has announced huge investment plans in the water transmission and distribution space for the next few years. It has announced large projects such as the National Rural Drinking Water programme, Swachh Bharat and river interlinking. The Government's thrust on water supply, irrigation, river management, along with improving sanitation, sewerage and urbanization is expected to drive the polyvinyl & polyethylene pipes and fittings markets to a different height.

Like our polyvinyl products, we have a wide range of polyethylene products as well. Whatever may be your application, we have tailor made PE Piping solutions. Range of pipe sizes in various Thermoplastics starts from 12mm to 250mm dia that can be installed on surface, buried, slip lined, trench less, floating and submerged. Fluids transported include, water, waste-water, compressed gases, odorous & corrosive gasses, chemicals & hazardous wastes / effluents. Solids conveyed include coal ash, slurries, sand and cables. Ori-Plast has perfected the extrusion and co-extrusion of the PE pipes with state-of-the-art machines to ensure quality and strict adherence to standards. We also manufactures LLDPE products like 4 & 3 layer water tanks and dustbins. These unique range of products are complemented by excellent quality and services. Whatever we manufacture we have aligned with Water & Energy conservation and Environment conservation.

Over last 10 years polymer piping industry had seen a very strong upward demand mainly from new construction in the metro cities and the Tier II & Tier III cities. Besides real estate & infrastructure development, there is a huge demand for replacement of metal pipes to plastic pipes mainly due to the corrosion, rusting, scaling etc. Since last 5 year, the industry is growing at 15% CAGR. This growth momentum is to continue in coming years too since the Government of India is emphasizing on creating new avenues of Infrastructure which needs different kind of pipes. Besides, the Prime Minister has also announced that every Indian should be having a house by next decade. This will create huge demand for low cost housing segment and each such segment will need pipes for plumbing, sewerage, rain water etc. Ori-Plast is in the position to harness the growth momentum in its stride.

Our wide range of PVC & PE pipes provide solutions for complete water cycle, irrigation, energy & power distribution, telecommunication networks and various other industrial applications. All the product range of Ori-Plast complies to a host of national & international standards. Ori-Plast team has been always committed to quality & innovative products. We had assembled a comprehensive product portfolio covering all sectors of PVC & PE Pipe usages. It is expected that the polyvinyl & polyethylene piping industry will continue its growth at 15% CAGR for next decade too which is mainly because of huge demand in agriculture pipes, plumbing pipes and industrial pipes. Ori-Plast is also charting the future road-map in such a way that demand-supply graph should always confluence.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their faith & trust on us and our products. In our 50 years of journey we have always remained focused to satisfy our customers with our wide range of products & dedicated services. Our customers and partners have benefitted tremendously from our product-focused & service-focused approach. We've realized that to succeed globally, the new products - both innovative yet usable, needed to be developed in regular cycles which will enable our clients & customers to stay ahead of the rest. Working in partnership with our dealers or distributers is an integral part of Ori-Plast. We have never believed in pursuing transactional relationships, preferring instead to work in a partnership-based model with our clients from the outset. After all, when our clients succeed, we also succeed by earning greater credibility and mindshare, both within our clients’ organizations and in the industry as a whole. We have always believed that when we work in a true partnership model, we bring the best for the both. We also had a very good set of clients across industries, covering practically all markets both nationally & globally.

We are grateful to all stakeholders for their continued encouragement and support.

We would like to thank our entire team, we call 'Ori-Plast Pariwar', who are the real champions behind our success, who have consistently embraced challenges and taken the Company forward and for helping us deliver on commitments over the last 50 years.
