Our History

Founded by K.P. Bhargava in 1945, Associated Chemicals Industries began its operations with the manufacture of surface-active agents for leather and textile industries. The beginning of the company's operation coincided with the boom of leather industry in Kanpur, located in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The country's first industrial city was amongst the foremost centres both in India and abroad for the manufacture of vegetable tanned leathers. To tap this growing market ACI started making fatliquors based on sulphated and sulphonated oil and their blends. In fact, the company was the first to introduce fish oil-based fatliquors to the tanners in Kanpur and Agra, home to the Taj Mahal.

Over the next two decades, in the 1950s and 1960s the company established itself as a quality manufacturer of fatliquors. In the mid-1970s there was a change in the leather industry in Kanpur as tanners started switching over to manufacture of chrome-tanned leathers.
