RPL is registered as a SSI unit with the Government of Maharashtra, Directorate of Industries vide their certificate dated 5th January, 1982. With the implementation of the present project, RPL will not maintain its SSI status. RPL has submitted industrial Entrepreneurs Memorandum for manufacture of synthetic resins to Secretariat of Industrial Approvals, Department of Industrial Development, Udyog Bhavan, New Delhi which has been duly acknowledged vide letter no. 2643/SIA/IMO/95 dated 29th May, 1995.
RPL commenced operations in 1971 for the manufacture of wide range of synthetic resins such as epoxy resins, foundry resins, ketonic resins, phenolic resins etc., some of which are import substitutes. The products of RPL find varied applications in diversified industries such as paints, printing inks, cosmetics, foundries, laminates, adhesives etc. The manufacturing facility of RPL is located at MIDC, Taloje in Maharashtra.
RPL has well equipped research and development laboratory recognised by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India and manned by competent technical team. The important activities of R & D are development of new products and applications, development of formulations using alternate raw materials and improvement in existing products to suit customer requirements. RPL was one of the first to have indirectly heated reactor to manufacture alkyds using solvent process and has continued to be responsive to newer techniques and developments in its operations.
RPL's plant is designed for faster production, uniform quality under controlled conditions. The versatility of the plant coupled with different reactor sizes ranging from 1 tonne to 10 tonnes per month ensures timely and qualitative execution of orders.
RPL plans to expand its existing capacity of 3200 tonnes per annum to 5150 tonnes per annum and to add Acrylic Emulsions, Thermosetting Acrylics and Acrylic Polyols to its existing product range at total cost outlay of Rs.570 Lacs at its existing plant site.
Note based on Directors' Report:
RPL and the workers union had moved the Industrial Tribunal, Maharashtra over the general raise demands of the latter. The same was settled amicably by negotiations between the two parties and the Industrial Tribunal passed the award in terms of the settlement on 16th September, 1994.
