India’s growth picture is as clear as glass for Saint Gobain

Purva Marwaha - 15-févr.-2018 11:23:20
Saint Gobain, the French maker of plasterboard and glass, is betting big on the Indian market and is aiming to triple revenues in the next ten years to ₹20,000 crore, its chairman said. “India is one of the fastest growing countries for Saint Gobain. India is the number one country for us — even more than China,” Pierre-Andre De Chalendar , chairman of the Saint-Gobain Group, told ET in an interview recently. About €130 million, or 10% of Saint Gobain’s investment capex, find their way into India that contributes only 2% of its sales. The share of India in total manufacturing is around 4%, he added. The last three years have seen the French company plough back all the profits it made in India to grow its business here. Chalendar is encouraged by the proactive reforms undertaken by the Indian government. “There has been a progressive reduction in bureaucracy. The tax reforms of last summer have been good. So, I am positive about the economic climate in India. It’s improving and I am confident that it will continue to improve.” Saint Gobain was set up in France in 1665, and made glass for the French King Louis XIV. It is present in India through three entities. “…at the moment in terms of growth capex, India is the number one country for us, even more than China,” Chalendar said.   Recommended By Colombia The company has grown by 19% since 1996 when it started operations in India through its listed company Grindwell Norton BSE 0.78 % (GNO). Over the years, capital expenditure for growth in the country has been the highest in all the countries that it has businesses in, amounting to around $100 million in the last few years. “Most of our investments in India have been funded by our existing company in India. It is a sign of the strength of our Indian business. So, we plough back all our profits in India. We haven’t sent money out of India for the last few years now. The cash that we generate, we invest back,” Chalendar added. In India, its biggest investment is in the glass business. It is the market leader in making glass for buildings, automotive windshields etc, and value-added glass like coated glass. The other business is gypsum plasterboard which is in the materials space and abrasives, refractories, high-performance plastics etc. “It is a sign of the strength of our Indian business,” Anand Mahajan, chairman of Saint Gobain Group in India, told ET in the same interview. Mahajan has been steering the group since its inception in India and leads a wholly Indian team in a French company, a fact that Chalendar takes pride in while talking about the glassmaker’s key successes in India. What gives Chalendar the confidence to bet on India is the rising demand that the company is seeing from its glassmaking segment. It makes flat glass that is used as windshields in automobiles and in buildings, where demand for green alternatives is pushing the sales up for its coated glass.        Source:  Economic Times,  http://bit.ly/2o1vtoj

HelioScreen, In Vitro evaluation specialist in sun screen products entering India

Thomas ILHE - 13-avr.-2015 11:36:44
HelioScreen , a French company involved in evaluation of sun protection products has entered Indian market partnering with C.L.A.I.M.S   Pvt Ltd , a Mumbai based CRO specializing in clinical research in the area of skin, hair and body care. 15 year old Helioscreen is a laboratory providing services for testing any products (cosmetics, textile, clothes etc.) in regard of their properties for UV /sun protection by means of In Vitro testing. With their profound involvement in R&D, and conceptualized a very particular kind of ‘robot’ which is considered as a performer in UV protection as it ensures consistency during In Vitro testing. LSW met Dr. Dominique Lutz, CEO and found out more about sunscreen technology and his company HelioScreen.  Excerpts from the interview conducted during his visit to Mumbai. Dr. Dominique Lutz CEO, Helioscreen LSW : In general, some of the sunscreen agents which are in use are uncertain on safety and efficacy. What are your views on this? Dr. Dominique Lutz : As long I know and considering the most important companies, we cannot state some ingredients are uncertain on safety. I know some debates on some of them but it is not a tremendous problem. Clearly the industries have to comply with the quality of these ingredients. The same filter (i.e. bmdbm now out of its patent) can be produced on bad conditions and include by product. But this is another story. Now considering the purpose of product including sun filters, I would totally agree we can state some products are uncertain on safety if we mean the safety is to protect the consumer from harmful UV exposure, some time it may be better not to be protected than protected by a “bad” product. And a so called bad product may be a product which claims a high SPF protection only in the UVB range. This has been the starting point to define a new way of protection including UVB and UVA and balanced effect on the all spectrum. It is far from being followed and even check with testing in some companies. LSW: Claims of water-proof, instant protection etc are misguiding users particularly when it comes to cosmetics. Your comment. Dr. Lutz : I totally agree even if cosmetics are efficient this is a pity that the marketing claims, lead the customer to be misguided for its use or the benefits he can expect from the product sometimes it may also be dangerous and claims must be controlled with attention by the authorities. As an example claim of full UV screen may induce customer not to pay attention with an over exposure. Sometimes it could be helpful and efficient to explain to the consumers as an example a product needs to be spread long before exposing and more efficient if renewed frequently in order to make it to perform “normally”. There is a chemical process and it is not enough just to spread the product at the last moment. May be the marketing should be first informed to give the good advice. LSW : Many sun screening products are available in India, but the composition details are not clear because most of them are cosmetic products. How do you propose to go about this in your foray in the Indian market? Dr. Lutz : : I think the rules in EU or other countries to exhibit CTFA formula is something logical. It is not so complicated to put in place but I think India health authorities have a lot to do to go towards international standard for claiming, demonstrating, testing etc… LSW : Unlike the US FDA and EU guidelines, in India there are no set guidelines for standardization. Some of the agents are manufactures by pharmaceuticals companies as combination products like cosmetics. Will you be focusing only on cosmetic area pertaining to skin, hair and body care? Dr. Lutz : Most of the time yes because they are these rules and guideline which are compulsory and so plenty of requirement to market a product. Nevertheless ourknow about is to measure the UV transmission (or no UV transmission) and we have had plenty of different works done on specific material. Just let me take as example textile, Sun glasses or even plaster. Let me also precise the countries in which we have the most important market are not automatically the ones in which they are the rules. In that case there is a hard competition and sometimes customers just care about the report and not the quality of the information. In Vitro AND in vivo tests can be really variable, any one would agree with this statement. At the same time, industrials or laboratories when developing need some tools to be efficient. It is not with your expertise, long experience you can guarantee a results even choosing the best ingredients. Only some specific tests most of the time different from the ones for claiming are the tolls to ensure and potentialize the results. LSW : Generally, sun screens are available in the cream. Lotion, sprays which are OTC (over the counter) products. Are you planning to look into pharmacokinetics area? Dr. Lutz : We already work with pharmaceutical companies in France. When a product needs a certification to be classified as a medicine, plenty of tests which have nothing to see with the claiming tests are required by the authorities. Also we did some method on photo stability for the Canadian health authorities etc…Clearly it also depends on the rules of each country. LSW : Now that HelioScreen is entering the Indian market, with a focus on personal care products which is a competitive market. Do you plan to look at offering your solutions to other areas also? Dr. Lutz : Considering the testing for UV protection efficiency there is so much to do and in fact no yet competitors, we prefer to be concentrated that allow us to be really a specialist as required for such a task. LSW : you share some information on HelioScreen’s partnership with C.L.A.M.S Dr. Lutz : We have had plenty of proposals from India but CLAIMS is doing the same job means TESTING and they have the serious and organization to propose complementary tests they cannot perform themselves. They have the background to explain the technique and it is not only a business opportunity but a real partnership. LSW : Finally, a brief history of your company and the future plans in India in particular. Dr. Lutz : Helioscreen has been created 15 Y ago with the only aim to propose in vitro testing services for sun screen evaluation. But at that time in EU, there were no methods, no market, and no trust in these services. Just my conviction it will be the future with my experience within COLIPA and a solid relationship with French Industries. Also the opportunity when I quit the industry to became an independent expert nearby French Health authorities and the possibility to work and contribute a lot both on a technical point of view and also political in EU Commission. Afterwards we have been logically involved in the ISO worldwide process as expert. My company has become more important and now has competitors but we have proposed the most important innovations in the development of these methods and will stay forever the forerunner. Today our contribution in RD in very huge compared to the size of my company. Also the development all over the word as these methods must be applied all over the word to be efficient. We can take for sure the future SPF standard on which we are working for decades in the international committee will have been proposed from our laboratory. LSW : Any other information that you would like to share with. Dr. Lutz : Unless in a country where there is still few constraint to put a product on the market the new requirement for sun protection claiming are more and more understood by consumers. Also keeping with the technical requirements about protection ( UVB/UVA) is not so easy, so it is better to be ready for the very next future of the legislation and requirement from consumers than wait for compulsory rules from authorities. That will make the difference.

Essilor launches eye care Foundation for Indians

Nathalie OSTERNAUD - 22-avr.-2014 09:22:08
French company Essilor has launched a campaign to provide eye care to children in Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka as part of its initiative to serve Indians with uncorrected vision. Essilsor Vision Foundation would start its charity work from tomorrow by screening children’s eyesight in public schools of the two states, said Essilor Chief Corporate Mission Officer Jayanth Bhuvaraghan, today. Those screened under the Foundation programme would be given free eyeglasses, he said. French eye care major Essilor would use its Indian network of 30,000 opticians, more than 5,000 employees and joint venture partners in its 25 companies to reach out across India to people who can not afford eyeglasses. "The Foundation marks a new milestone in our goal to bring good vision to everyone in India," he said. As many as 550 million Indians have uncorrected poor vision, Bhuvaraghan said. This has far reaching social impact on individuals and their communities as well as an estimated economic impact of USD 37 billion in lost productivity at work places each year in the Indian subcontinent, he said. The Paris-headquartered multinational corporation has provided free vision care to almost 600,000 people around the world over the past 25 years. He estimated there were 2.5 billion people across the world who need access to vision correction. Source : PTI
