Dr. Saurabh Naik President & CEO The President of Intercontinental Export-Import, Inc., Dr. Saurabh Naik, received his first Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and his second Bachelor's Degree in Plastics Technology from the University Department of Technology in Mumbai, India. He received his M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York.
Dr. Saurabh Naik has always placed a great deal of emphasis on bringing TECHNICAL manpower into the SirNaik team. He foresees a potential for future growth of the company in "difficult to deal with" products such as adhesives, printing ink, polymer emulsions, thermoset resins, solvents, pigments and many other products.
The Michigan plant, which will cost ..., 22 June 2009 [cached]
The Michigan plant, which will cost between $2.5 million and $3 million to build and equip, will be near Toledo, Ohio, said CEO Saurabh Naik, in a June 25 interview at NPE2009. He said the plant should be completed by the end of the year, with production being in January or February, and there will be plenty of room on the site for expansion.
"We see a big vacuum in injection molding. We plan to launch our own branded product line," said Naik, who also is president and CEO of Naik Group of Industries, also headquartered in Columbia.
Naik Group has a partnership with $10 million molder Jyoti Plastic Works Ltd., based in Mumbai, India, which will do the design work for the Michigan injection molding plant. "It doesn't make sense to make the products in India and ship them here," Naik said.
"Our strength is the feedstock we turned into recycled pellets and we want to convert them into finished products," he said. "We want to move in the direction of green products that have recycled content."
Meanwhile, the 250,000-square-foot Ravenswood plant is currently operating at 40 percent capacity and making about 30 products, including casters for the appliance and furniture industry, office chair bases, and housings for power tools.
"We are slowly gearing up," Naik said. The plant has the capacity to make 120 million pounds of pellets annually. He said the plant also does tolling for other companies.
Currently, about 70-80 percent of the Ravenswood products are made from fibers such as nylon, and the rest from film. Much of the fiber is carpet it gets from the Dalton, Ga., area.
"We want to use more film because there is a greater supply of that," Naik said. "But we have a learning curve to go through with that because there are so many coatings and layers. But eventually, it will become half and half."
Naik said the Ravenswood plant has seven densifiers, a single-screw extruder and two twin-screw extruders. As production expands, the company may double the 65-employee workforce, he said.
IEI also completed in the first quarter of this year an expansion that doubled the closed-loop recycling portion of its largest recycling plant and warehouse in Washington, W. Va., outside of Parkersburg. That business operates under the name Polymer Alliance Services.
Naik said the Polymer Alliance operation used to just reprocess scrap.
Naik said the Polymer Alliance has plans to expand, and the next step will be to have a facility in Houston or Indianapolis. A Texas expansion could come as early as next year - investment could be as high as $4 million.
There also is demand for a similar, but smaller, facility in Europe, he said.

In a press conference on the ..., 1 July 2011 [cached]
In a press conference on the fifth floor of the City Building, Saurabh Naik, group president and CEO, announced the acquisition of the assets and business of the Gateman Group. The acquisition has created Sirnaik LLC, a subsidiary of the Intercontinental Export Import Inc (IEI), part of the Naik Group of Industries.
"Acquisition of the Gateman Group businesses will allow IEI and Sirnaik to literally expand its services for a total recycling solution to the plastic industry for post-industrial and post-consumer activities," Naik said.
Naik said expansion of the company and the recycling operations could create several hundred jobs in the next few years.
Officials did not disclose the purchase price.
The purchase involves multiple facilities in Parkersburg, as well as Virginia and South Carolina. Naik, which already operates a number of facilities in the area, now has ownership of Gatewood Products, the former Schott Glass and Atlas Steel plants and the Ideal plant.
Naik said Schott Glass will become the Green Research Center, which will house every recycling process under one roof.
"The acquisition of the Gateman Group and the expansion plans of Sirnaik into post-consumer recycling is proof positive that capacity and technology exists to make recycling and reuse profitable for second-tier markets," Naik added.
Most of the facilities are located in Parkersburg, primarily around Depot Street, near the soon-to-be-abandoned Department of Highways facility.
Officials are hopeful the acquisition of the downtown warehouse and property will aid attempts to create a shipping port. Naik's operations here ship more than 300 containers a month to China and India.
Naik has operations in the former O. Ames building and Polymer Alliance Services in Washington.
Saurabh Naik, group president and CEO of Naik Group of Industries, announced his company's purchase of the Gateman Group and its facilities in Parkersburg, including the former Schott Glass facility along Staunton Avenue.
