In late sixties, three young men started their journey for entrepreneurship in manufacturing products related to surface coating Industry. The beginning was with paint and lacquer. In early seventies they decided to alter their path to the most critical product in this field i.e. nitrocellulose. Thereafter cellulose became their main line of business. This was the beginning of Asha Nitrochem Industries Ltd., the first private sector company to start production of Industrial Nitrocellulose in India. In late eighties, the product range extended to Celluloid Sheets, Ethyl Cellulose and in late nineties to Pigment Dispersions. These were all maiden ventures in India. When Nitrocellulose unit was sold to ICI Group in 1998, the group retained the exclusive right for export of Nitrocellulose and also retained balance manufacturing facilities other than Nitrocellulose.
