A professionally managed company controlled by the Garg group, Kanpur, Standard Surfactants has a sustained presence in surfactants (surface active agents) and synthetic detergents. SSL put up its second unit to manufacture 90% active matter sulphonic acid from linear alkyl benzene (LAB) and also synthetic detergents in 1992, at Mandideep, Madhya Pradesh; the first being at Rania, UP. The film sulphonation plant, set up in 1995, has commenced production of 97% LABS with additional capacity to produce ADS. The largest non-captive surfactant manufacturer in north India, the company serves customers like HLL, P&G, Godrej and Shaw Wallace. Besides having a captive demand for 6000 tpa of surfactants for its detergent division, it also has a tie-up with P&G to pick up at least 50% of its requirement of surfactants from SSL. This demand, estimated at 5000 tpa currently, is likely to go up to 8000 tpa by 1997. Standard Surfactants now intends to explore the areas of toilet soaps and related personal-care products. The film sulphonation plant has the flexibility to manufacture most of these products with small modifications and additions.
