From Small Seeds to Big Trees

Our Story

Spectrochem is a family business. With roots planted in a legacy trading company in the 1940s, it gradually grew over the years from one manufacturing plant to eight modern facilities with high-tech R&D departments. Since then, Spectrochem has grown from producing 17 HPLC solvents to over 3500 fine chemicals, and continues to expand.

A manufacturing plant is opened for HPLC grade solvents, later expanding the range to organic and fine chemicals.

An additional manufacturing plant is opened for organic chemicals, intermediates and phase transfer catalysts.

Spectrochem is awarded the Certificate of Merit during the launch of SLV-3 by ISRO. We are the only chemical company to have received this honour.

A further warehouse and basic chemistry laboratory is established.

A new warehouse, repacking division, and dedicated facility for GC grade solvents and sensitive reagents is opened. Alongside this, a new research centre catering to low volume and high value products and an additional manufacturing plant for custom synthesis molecules are also established.

A new R&D Centre is opened in Tarapur, with a team focused on custom synthesis and fine chemistry. Once it started production, an additional 100 MTPA were installed at capacity. In the same year, a new manufacturing plant for organic chemicals and intermediates dedicated for custom synthesis molecules and medium to lage volume products for industry is also opened.

Establishment of new warehouse with different temperature controlled zones and modern racking systems

A new plot is purchased for future expansion.
