The company’s initial step was the setting up of a single screw extruder imported from Battenfield Germany, for manufacturing rigid PVC pipes in a small shed, 32 km from Indore in Madhya Pradesh with a capital of Rs 0.2 million taken from MPFC in the year 1983.
The brand ‘Kasta’ of the company was a success and led to expanded capacities and a dealership network of over 100 dealers. Strategically leveraging its relationship with the farmers, in 1992, a 200 tonnes per day solvent extraction plant was established where the company became buyer of seeds from the farmers who were purchasing company’s rigid PVC Pipes. The same year the company went public with an initial issue of Rs 48.3 million at a premium double its share value.
In 1995 a new range of injection moulding products was added to the basket. The range of offering of the RPVC pipes increased steadily from diameter of 63 mm to 316 mm.
The company added a 50 tonne edible oil refinery in the year 1998, whose capacity was increased to 70 tonnes within two years. This earmarked the successful launch of the brand ‘Kriti Refined Edible Soya Oil’ and further expansion of the capacity to 120 tonnes. With the advent of the telecom revolution a new range of institutional customers were added for the supply of co-extruded internally lubricated HDPE telecom ducts for laying optical fiber cables. The company subsequently started manufacturing large diameter HDPE pipes of 450 mm diameter for potable water supplies & sewage disposal.
In 2001, the company received the ISO 9000 certifiation, was processing 15000 tonne of plastics annually and added a 2 tonne per day lecithin plant in the soya division. The company was constantly expanding its plastics’ range and not only catered to customers in M P, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra but also many leading institutional customers & government departments.
The year, 2004 was a landmark year when the company moved out of Madhya Pradesh to Ranjangaon, Pune and put up new state-of-the-art facilities for moulding for white goods & the automobile industry. In the subsequent year the company received a certificate for second highest sales of soya oil in India and also the ISO 22000 certification and many more opprtunities.
In 2007 Kriti became the pioneer in manufacturing and exporting Super HyPro Soyabean meal, value added soya flakes and speciality lecithin.
