The Lubrizol Corporation and Finolex Industries Limited have announced the signing of FlowGuard® Processor agreement for the manufacturing and sale of Finolex FlowGuard® Plus pipes and fittings in India.
The product will be launched in the market by Finolex Industries Limited in the last week of March 2017 and will cater to the building and construction industry.
“Lubrizol is dedicated to supplying the highest quality CPVC compounds to service the Indian hot & cold water plumbing markets,” explains Matthew Timmons, Managing Director, Lubrizol Advanced Materials India Pvt. Ltd.
“Our partnership with Finolex Industries highlights the need and importance of quality CPVC pipes and fittings made from time-tested CPVC compounds provided by Lubrizol. Since January 2016, we have been manufacturing these world quality materials from a state-of-the art plant in Dahej, Gujarat. Our association with Finolex will further strengthen FlowGuard’s commitment to delivering reliability in India through Finolex’s wide spread network in the country.”
Timmons continues, “Since we introduced FlowGuard to the Indian market, we remained committed through our support of processors who continue to benefit from our more than 50 years of expertise in manufacturing and compounding. Additionally, with the government’s recent focus on housing for all, the infrastructure status given to real estate, loans offered at cheaper rates, introduction of the Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA), GST & many other initiatives, the need for quality products to be used in the country is greater than ever.”
