Braj Binani: The Braj Binani Group has
been convinced of the growth potential of the composites and the fibreglass markets since we built our fibreglass operations at Goa back in 1996. In the last years, we were getting prepared to expand our footprint in the global fibreglass market guided by a vision to create a major fibreglass player with state-of-the-art technology, global ambitions and unrivalled innovation capabilities. To create this fibreglass champion, we were looking for a quality partner sharing the same vision and values as the Braj Binani Group. Then, we were informed that 3B was for sale. This was the perfect fit. As Seneca said, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

Also, we have ambitious objectives for the future which is to increase our combined global capacity from 170.000 tons today to more than 300.000 tons in 3 to 5 years’ time. This will allow us to better serve our customers and support their own global growth agenda. It will be achieved in full respect of the existing commitment of 3B with all consistencies and related parties.
