We see significant opportunity to leverage our legacy and strengths to tap into the consumer business potential to emerge as a strong player in this region."
The country's oldest paint maker is undergoing a strategic transformation to become a consumer business centric company through increased focus on decorative paints. With 5 depots (Agra, Ghaziabad, Kanpur, Lucknow and Varanasi) catering to over 600 dealers, Shalimar sells in major cities and towns of UP.

Super Shaktiman exterior emulsion with silicon additives offers durability and protection against all climatic conditions.
"The emulsions are complimented by No. 1 and Shakti primers that offer superior protection to walls and ensure better finish of the top coat," claimed the company.
