Dabur to Setup New Manufacturing Plant in Tezpur

Dabur India Ltd. commissioned a new manufacturing facility in Tezpur, Assam for manufacturing its entire product range.

India: The facility is spread over 30 acres and will be built at an estimated cost of USD37.18 million. The plant, located in the Balipara industrial area, will manufacture the entire range of Dabur’s ayurvedic medicines, health supplements, hair oils, shampoos, toothpastes, skincare, and homecare products.

The FMCG giant, which has 29 other factories across India and a few in other countries, claims that the Tezpur manufacturing facility is the largest, worldwide. The company has boosted its expansion plans to respond to the stiff competition from Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. for the past couple of years. Moreover, demonetization had a serious impact on the sales of the company in the last quarter, due to which the company had to rethink its business strategy to stay in the marketplace with a competitive edge.

TechSci Research depicts that the Tezpur plant reflects the confidence of Dabur in continuous growth and expansion of their FMCG business in the country and has prioritized the location as a strategic manufacturing hub. The company is one of the oldest and most trusted brands in the country, thus, to justify its position and size of business, the company has sanctioned the Tezpur manufacturing facility. This is expected to boost the market of ayurvedic products across the country in coming years.
