In a distinctive interview with The Interview World, Girish Patel, Business Head (Gujarat & Central) at APIL, highlights the unique features of their products, emphasizes the company’s business expansion, and discusses their sustainability initiatives. Here are the significant takeaways from his interview.

Q: What distinguishes your products from others on the market?

A: Our company specializes in the production of polyisocyanurate (PIR) panels, a cutting-edge solution for construction needs. These panels feature 18-micron aluminum foil wrapping on both sides, providing superior performance compared to traditional galvanized iron (GI) ducting. By utilizing aluminum foil, we ensure our products are resistant to corrosion, addressing a common issue faced by GI ducts.

Notably, our PIR panels offer a multitude of advantages. We meticulously design them making leak-proof, preventing any unwanted moisture ingress, and eliminating condensation concerns. Moreover, their lightweight nature facilitates easy installation, saving time and labor costs.

These versatile panels find extensive application across various construction projects, including HVAC ducting systems, insulation for decks, walls, roofs, cold storages, glass facades, floors, cavities, and false ceilings.

Furthermore, our commitment to quality is reflected in the durability of our products, with a lifespan of up to 15 years in India and an impressive 20 years internationally.

Q: What is the duration of your involvement in this industry, and what has been the market’s response to your presence?

A: In 2010, our journey commenced with the establishment of our inaugural plant in Kapoli. The subsequent year saw the introduction of our products into the market, marking a significant milestone. Our primary focus has been the conversion of Gl ducting to PIR, a fundamental aspect of our mission. Initially, our products encountered skepticism due to a lack of understanding regarding their benefits. However, perseverance and dedication prevailed, leading to a gradual shift in public perception. Over time, people began to appreciate the value and advantages offered by our innovations. This growing acceptance serves as a testament to our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement.

Q: How can the issue of rodents posing a significant threat to the HAVC ducting system be effectively mitigated or prevented? 

A: Our panels feature a coating of ultrasonic anti-rodent chemicals meticulously developed by our R&D team. This specialized formula effectively repels rodents, ensuring enhanced protection. Furthermore, our products are engineered with a compact design, meticulously crafted to eliminate any potential gaps within the system. This comprehensive approach guarantees that rodents are unable to infiltrate our systems, providing peace of mind to our customers regarding the safety and integrity of their environments.

Q: What sustainable measures is your organization implementing in the manufacturing process?

A: We, as manufacturers of polyisocyanurate panels wrapped with aluminum foils to replace GI ducts, place sustainability at the forefront of our production process. Our commitment begins by selecting eco-friendly materials and employing energy-efficient solutions to minimize our environmental footprint. These panels are meticulously crafted for recyclability, ensuring easy disassembly and reuse to minimize waste. We invest in energy-efficient manufacturing techniques and equipment to significantly reduce our carbon emissions.

Moreover, we implement waste reduction strategies to minimize material wastage and optimize transportation logistics to lower emissions further. Additionally, we conduct lifecycle assessments to evaluate environmental impacts from raw material extraction to disposal, guiding our continuous improvement efforts. Our dedication to sustainability not only reflects environmental stewardship but also ensures that we provide our customers with top-quality products while minimizing ecological impact.

In adhering to the highest standards of quality, AIPL holds ISO 9001:2008 certification, emphasizing our commitment to product excellence. Furthermore, our company is ISO 14001:2004 certified, showcasing our dedication to environmental stewardship through the adoption of Environment Management Systems.

Q: What is your company’s strategy for exporting products, and could you provide insights into your current revenue as well as your long-term revenue targets?

A: We distribute our products globally, reaching nearly every country except America and Europe. Last year, our revenue peaked at Rs. 150 crores. Looking ahead, we’re poised to triple our turnover, aiming for Rs. 500 crores within the next five years. This optimistic projection stems from the increasing recognition and demand for our products, coupled with a consistently favorable market response. Taking into consideration these encouraging factors, it’s clear that our company is on a trajectory towards substantial growth and success. The future looks promising, with ample opportunities for expansion and further market penetration.
