ABOUT US

The Finolex Way

Once our customers install our pipes, they completely forget about us. We take great pride in this dependable quality that gives farmers, plumbers and home owners one less thing to worry about. This quality focus is not just restricted to our products, but defines every aspect of our functioning. Whether quality support for our dealers, vendors and suppliers. Quality opportunities to our employees. Superior quality of life, education and health of the people we serve through our various social responsibility initiatives.

Fundamentally Finolex

To stay focused on making superior quality pipes and fittings, and nothing else but that, for forty years, is no mean feat. Aligning every decision, every action, every resource towards delivering quality pipes and fittings. To choose to do just one thing, and do it well. So that our customers can continue to rely on the pipes they laid down years ago. Now, that’s Finolex.

Our focus is single-minded. When we choose to diversify, it’s upstream with an open sea jetty to manage our raw materials, and downstream into last mile fulfilment. When we evolve, it has to be in our understanding of customer expectations and finding better machines and processes to meet those expectations. When we choose to expand, it is into newer markets, delivering our pipes and fittings to newer customers. And when we measure our growth, it is in reputation. The effect of which reflects in our bottom line - growing manifold in the last decade.

Over the last forty years, we have steadily added depth to our company, instead of spreading ourselves wide and thin. Consistently delivering the exact same products that fulfil the exact same promise. Every time. That’s what makes us a strong brand, with a strong network, and even stronger goodwill. That’s what makes us Finolex.

Our founder

Shri Pralhad P Chhabria

12th March 1930 - 5th May 2016
I leave behind my foundation of discipline, uncompromising product quality, a commitment to technological advancements, and the highest quality of manufacturing facilities. One must always strive to grow; but with quality in mind and sincerity in heart
Shri Pralhad P. Chhabria established the Finolex Group of companies in 1958 and over the years built it into a well-known conglomerate. He continues to live in our midst through the values we have imbibed from him. Humility and an ability to focus on the basics. With an emphasis on quality, constant learning, and pushing for excellence, he is the one that has made Finolex the fine and flexible company that it is today. And he did this, not by himself, but by bringing people together.

Our Manufacturing Ethos

Our quality towers tall because of the solid foundation our manufacturing operations offer. With ISO 9001:2015 certified plants – two in Maharashtra, in Ratnagiri and Urse; and a third in Masar, Gujarat. Every plant has been instrumental in helping us deliver quality and reliable products across the country. With every employee on the floor aligned to the bigger picture, holding themselves personally accountable for the output, and the reputation we enjoy out in the world.

Our flagship facility in Ratnagiri, spread over 650 acres, is home to an open sea cryogenic jetty and storage facility to receive raw materials. And an in-house PVC resin pipe manufacturing facility in technical collaboration with Uhde GmbH, Germany, with Hoechst technology, ensures that all our facilities receive a dedicated and consistent supply of superior quality resin. But the thing that really drives our machines across all plants, is the ethos we share. Our common passion for quality.

A Network of Trust

We have over 900 dealers and 21,000 retail touchpoints across the country. Many of the people in this network have been with us for over 30 years, as members of our parivaar, our family. Over the decades, we have earned their trust, and they, ours, as families do. Their faith in us has, in turn, inspired their customers, many of whom swear by our products. Creating a beautifully interwoven tapestry of partnerships. An interconnected network of collaboration and trust, that is as enduring as the pipes and fittings we make.

Upstreaming our value chain to manufacture our own PVC resin. Continuously innovating and evolving to stretch ourselves further and out-perform our own expectations.

We want the very same for the environment. Any initiative we undertake to support our environment has to have an eye on the far horizon.

We believe that nurturing our roots, and the earth and water that nourishes them, leads to towering possibilities for the future of our country.
