Our History

  • Harmony Organics is a family run company with a 35+ year history in Chemical Manufacturing. It was started by Mr. Ravi Nangia, a Chemical Engineer by training and a graduate of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology – Kanpur from the batch of 1972. Mr. Nangia always had an entrepreneurial bent of mind and an ambition to establish a world class chemicals manufacturing facility in India. After getting his B-Tech degree from IIT-Kanpur Mr. Nangia took up a Research Engineer’s position with Hindustan Lever, the Indian subsidiary of Unilever. This early exposure to world class technology & systems has left a lifelong impression on Mr. Nangia and the results are visible in the day-to-day operations of Harmony Organics.
  • Mr. Nangia left Unilever in 1976 and Harmony Organics was born in Mumbai (then known as Bombay). Since its inception Harmony has focused on a portfolio of aroma chemicals and intermediates. Over the years the Company has mastered the process technology for a variety of aroma ingredients. With a combination of toll manufacturing (current clients include Somaiya Group & Atul Industries) and independent products, Harmony has established for itself a respectable repute in the Indian Aroma Chemicals market. Since its early days the Company has had a progressive management heavily invested into technological innovation.
  • Harmony has been a regular participant in industry conferences and a member of key trade organizations. As the Company grew in size and tonnages the original manufacturing site at Mumbai became constraining in terms of expansion potential and hence in the year 2006 the company established a new manufacturing location at a Chemicals Manufacturing Hub located at Kurkumbh near Pune, India. This current manufacturing facility is located on a 6 acre plot at Kurkumbh MIDC ( 70 km from Pune & 300 km from Mumbai) and manufactures Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol, Styrene Oxide and Methyl-Pentenone as key products (combined tonnage of 3000 TPA) in addition to several smaller products including Styrallyl Acetate, Para Cresyl Methyl Ether, Anisole etc. Large customers include the S H Kelkar group & Oriental Aromatics and Lupin Industries (Pharma). We have successfully executed export orders to customers in EU & North America.

    The company is committed to future growth in the Aroma Chemical industry with a focus on large tonnage products. Sustainability, environment friendliness and the safety of our employees and neighborhoods are non-negotiable goals for Harmony. The company is invested in the welfare of its employees and has continuing investment in upgrading their skills. Mr. Nangia is always proud to mention the number of highly skilled & devoted operators that have been with the company more than 30 years.
