plans, we entered into a techno-financial joint venture with Specialty Process LLC

CPVC pipes and fittings for home and industrial application. Over the years, we
have expanded and enhanced our product lines to provide continually improved

we also began trading in products such as CPVC and PVC fittings, flanges and
valves from Spears (USA), solvent cements (adhesive solutions) for joining pipes
and fittings from IPSC (USA), underground specialty fittings from Hunter (U.K)
and CPVC and PVC plastic pipes of a larger diameter from Harvell Inc. (USA)
