SPIC

Southern Petrochemical Industries Corporation Limited (SPIC) is a leading producer of fertilisers in India. SPIC Ltd is a state-owned industrial development institution with its headquarters in Tamil Nadu.

The company was founded in 1969 in Chennai. It started as a manufacturer of all kinds of fertilisers. Owing to the high demand for fertilisers, in 1979, the company installed a pure gas hydrogen recovery unit to produce Ammonia. The company also later diversified into plastic products and petrochemicals segments.

In 1983, SPIC Ltd acquired two chemical tankers, ‘SPIC Pearl’ and ‘SPIC Emerald’ for regular delivery of phosphoric acid to its plants from overseas suppliers. The company also purchased a modern gas carrier for better supply of chemicals and gases.

In later years, the company diversified into IC chip making through its subsidiary SPIC Electronics & Systems Limited. The company’s subsidiary Manali Petrochemical Ltd was also commissioned to manufacture Propylene Oxide, Propylene Glycol, and Polycol. SPIC was also selected as a co-promoter for an aromatics project set up as a joint venture with the Madras Refineries Limited.

In 1995, SPIC signed a memorandum of understanding with the US-based company Gelman Sciences for manufacturing membrane filters for industrial healthcare operations.

In 1996, BIODART, an enzyme project for the production of basic enzymes and formulations for the leather industry, was also commissioned by SPIC. Chlorine Engineers Corporation (CEC) of Japan entered into an agreement to provide technical knowledge and expertise for setting up a membrane cell conversion project.

In 1997, SPIC set up its first overseas manufacturing plant in trade free zone of Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates. It was set up as a wholly owned subsidiary with a manufacturing capacity of 1,200 TPA of urea and 6.85 TPA of ammonia. In 2000, the production facility in Manali was shut down due to concerns over its functioning conditions.

In 2002, SPIC closed its ammonia unit in Tuticorin due to leakage in the pipeline. In 2015, the closed Tuticorin plant was commissioned again and it is fully functioning today. An MoU was signed between SPIC and the Government of Tamil Nadu to set up an additional production facility of 12,70,000 MTP per annum of Urea in Tuticorin.

SPIC Limited’s market capitalisation stood at over ₹1,990 crore, as of February 8, 2024. SPIC share price has surged over 280% in the last three years.
