Viscose staple fibre
Grasim is India's pioneer in viscose staple fibre (VSF), a man-made, biodegradable fibre with characteristics akin to cotton. An extremely versatile and easily blendable fibre, VSF is widely used in apparels, home textiles, dress material, knitted wear and non-woven applications.

Grasim's VSF plants are located at Nagda in Madhya Pradesh, Kharach and Vilayat in Gujarat and Harihar in Karnataka, with an aggregate capacity of 498 ktpa. >>

Grasim ventured into cement production in the mid 1980s, setting up its first cement plant at Jawad in Madhya Pradesh and since then it has grown to become a leading cement player in India.

Grasim’s subsidiary UltraTech Cement has 14 integrated plants (including under acquisition), 16 grinding units (including under acquisition), five bulk terminals and 97 RMC plants – spanning India, UAE, Bahrain, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. All the plants are located close to sizeable limestone mines and are fully automated to ensure consistent quality. All units use state-of-the-art equipment and technology and are certified with ISO 9001 for quality systems and ISO 14001 for environment management systems. >>

Rayon grade caustic soda is an important raw material in VSF production. To achieve reliable and economical supply of this chemical, Grasim set up a rayon grade caustic soda unit at Nagda in 1972 with an initial capacity of 33,000 tpa. This has since grown to 452 ktpa, making it the country’s largest caustic soda unit. >>

Grasim has a strong presence in fabrics and synthetic yarns, through its subsidiary, Grasim Bhiwani Textiles Limited (GBTL) is well known for its branded suitings, Grasim and Graviera, mainly in the polyester – cellulosic branded menswear. Its textile plants are located at Bhiwani (Haryana) and Malanpur (Madhya Pradesh). >>
