|Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has opened a technologically advanced product application & research centre (PARC) for polymers at Vadodara, Gujarat. The PARC will focus on creating value addition opportunities, not only for RIL’s polymer business, but also for its customers by offering technical, product upgradations and application development services. |
The PARC, initially set up in Mumbai in 1990 with the sole objective of providing product support solutions to customers, has now been transformed into a crucial R&D facility for polymers, such as polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Ajay Shah, president - polymer chain, Reliance Industries, said, “The PARC at Vadodara possesses a spacious shop floor and state-of-the-art labs that are equipped with the world’s finest processing and testing equipment. It has been tailored to cater to the ever-growing needs and expectations of our customers. A dynamic set of young engineers and technologists at the labs will play a crucial role as the vital link between end users, converters and manufacturing plants. I believe that a facility of this magnitude will go a long way to ensure that Reliance is at the quality frontier of our industry, globally.”
