    Anupam Rasayan commenced operations in 1984 with conventional products and now it makes specialty chemicals that involve multi-step synthesis and complex chemistries.
    It has six multi-purpose manufacturing facilities based in Gujarat with a combined aggregate installed capacity of around 23,396 metric tonnes.
    In the first half of FY21, the company had posted a profit of Rs 26 crore as against Rs 22 crore in the year-ago period. Revenue for the period stood at Rs 355 crore, up 51.5 percent YoY.
    The company has long-term business with clients like Syngenta Asia Pacific, Sumitomo Chemical Company, UPL Ltd across Europe, Japan, US besides India.
