S H Kelkar and Company shifts production due to fire incident at Vashivali facility

The entire flavour manufacturing (Domestic and Export) will get consolidated at Vashivali sit

  • By ICN Bureau | May 11, 2024

Pursuant to fire incident at S H Kelkar and Company Limited's Vashivali facility, to mitigate the impact of fire on the fragrance unit at Vashivali, the company has shifted its production at its site in Mulund, which houses Keva Fragrance export unit with a capacity of 5,000 tonne per shift per year.

Additionally, the company has converted its flavour facility at Mulund, which has a capacity of 4,000 tonne per shift per year, for fragrance manufacturing. With these facilities operating in double shifts, the company has adequate capacity to service all customer requirements.

In view of the aforementioned, the entire flavour manufacturing (Domestic and Export) will get consolidated at Vashivali site which was not impacted by fire and has adequate infrastructure to support entire flavour operation without any additional investments.

Customer servicing resumed from April 30, 2024, ensuring that our commitments to clients continue to be met progressively. This transition has resulted in a backlog of around 10 days which the Company is confident to restore to normal service level by the end of this month.

The company has a comprehensive insurance coverage to cover for the loss. The surveyor and the insurance company are in the process of ascertaining the loss.
