Company History - Granules India
HISTORY AND BUSINESS OF THE COMPANY
 
 Granules India Ltd (GIL) was incorporated as a Private
 Limited Company on March 16, 1991 and was later converted
 into a Public Limited Company on February 8, 1993.  GIL
 commenced its operations in April 1991 as a merchant
 exporter of bulk drugs like Paracetamol, Guaifenesin and
 Chloro Pheniramine Maleste.  It has been exportingmainly
 to the developed markets such as U.S.A., Europe, Mexico and
 Hongkong. Since 1992, GIL concentrated on export of
 Paracetamol powder, which was procured from a Group
 Company, M/s.Triton Laboratories Pvt Ltd (TLPL), a small
 scale unit. In 1993-94, the international prices of bulk
 drugs like Paracetamol were under pressure and GIL decided
 to enter into value added areas.
 
 In April 1993, GIL also joined as a partner of M/s.Triton
 Laboratories (TL), a partnership firm promoted by the
 promoters in 1985.  After GIL became a partner. TL crested
 facilities for manufacture of DC blends of Paracetamol and
 directly entered into its export market. Later, TL decided
 to diversify into manufacturing of bulk drugs and started
 implementing a project for the same.  In August 1994, as
 part of consolidation and restructuring the Group's
 operations.  TL was dissolved and its assets and
 liabilities were taken over by GIL at book value. The assets
 were independently valued by Shri S.Deshpande, Chartered
 Engineer and approved valuer.
