History

More than a century ago, with the guidance and support of his Highness Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad, a great mind with business acumen along with two geniuses of Chemistry, conceived Alembic Chemical Works Company Limited. They were, Prof. T.K. Gajjar – the first renowned chemist in Western India, Prof. Kotibhaskar – a Gold Medalist in Technological Chemistry, and Rajmitra Mr. B. D. Amin – the man with incomparable business tact and capacity for management.

In the year 1907, when Alembic Chemical Works was formed, Prof. Kotibhaskar took the charge of being the Principal Director, Prof. T. K. Gajjar was the organization’s key guidance source. Amidst the two brains of chemistry, Mr. B. D. Amin was at the helm of the affairs for this entity and with his perseverance and dedication, he built the strong foundation of this century-old organization. Read more...Read less...
