The Colors division is the largest business division of Atul Ltd, manufacturing a wide range of dyestuffs for the textile, leather, paper, wool and silk industries. The division is the largest supplier of dyestuffs in India and exports nearly 40% of its production to more than 40 countries worldwide.
The division's manufacturing operations started with sulphur dyes in 1952. In quick succession, other classes of dyes - direct, acid, azoic and azo disperse - were added to the product range. Vat, reactive and anthraquinone disperse dyes were manufactured by the erstwhile Atic Industries Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between Atul Ltd and Zeneca plc (formerly a part of Imperial Chemical Industries plc).
In 1995, when Zeneca decided to divest its textile colours business worldwide, Atul Ltd bought over Zeneca's stake in Atic Industries. Consequently, the same year, the two companies were merged.
With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, stringent quality control systems and an efficient pool of skill-sets, the division is in the forefront of exploiting market opportunities and providing optimum solutions to its customers.
The division is an ETAD member and is ISO9001 certified.
