Sharda Cropchem was incorporated as Sharda Worldwide Exports on March 12, 2004, in Mumbai, as a private limited company under the Companies Act, 1956. Initially the company began its operations through two sole proprietary firms, each set up by Ramprakash V. Bubna and Sharda R. Bubna. After incorporation as Sharda Worldwide Exports in 2004, the generic agrochemical business and non-agrochemical business conducted by both firms were transferred to the company. The company was converted into a public limited company and changed its name to Sharda Cropchem on September 18, 2013.
Sharda Cropchem is a crop protection chemical company engaged in the marketing and distribution of a wide range of formulations and generic active ingredients globally. It is also involved in order based procurement and supply of Belts, general chemicals, dyes and dye intermediates. It procures these non-agrochemical products, primarily, from the manufacturers in China or India and supplies them in over 35 countries across Australia, Asia, Europe, North America and Latin America. The company has recently entered into the biocide segment and has acquired several registrations from the existing registration holders, primarily, in Europe.
As of August 5, 2014, the company had over 180 Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) certified dossiers and as of July 15, 2014, it owned over 1,040 registrations for formulations and over 155 registrations for generic active ingredients across Europe, NAFTA, Latin America and Rest of the World.
The company’s library of dossiers gives it a competitive edge and facilitates in seeking registrations in different countries in a time efficient manner. This also fosters its ability to operate in and distribute diversified range of formulations and generic active ingredients globally including highly regulated markets, which would not be permitted without such registrations. As of August 5, 2014, it has filed over 500 applications for seeking registrations globally which are pending at different stages.
Milestones: In November 2011, the company acquired 76% stake in Axis Crop Science, which is a company focused on marketing and distribution of formulations in India.
