CKPL Plant at Haridwar
CavinKare's own Manufacturing Plant which got commissioned in 2006, is situated in picturesque state of Uttaranchal at Sidcul Industrial Estate, Haridwar with an area of 8 acres with a built up area of around 1 lakh square feet. It is at a distance of 225 kms from New Delhi and 52 kms from state capital Dehradun. The Plant capacity is around 5000 Metric Tons and built with an investment of INR 70 crores. The Plant is environment friendly with effective waste management systems in place. Currently, shampoos, creams, moisturizing lotions and talcum powder are being manufactured here in various sizes and variants. The Company has plans to manufacture hair dyes and herbal powders in near future. The entire machinery in the Plant is imported in order to have the best output, conforming to international manufacturing standards.
The Strategic decision of the Company to get into manufacturing for the first time after nearly 23 years of its existence was to have better control over quality and produce consistent supplies. This also helps enhance capacity of production to cater to next three years of Company growth, time management as well as to reduce freight cost. The Plant has vertically integrated manufacturing (manufacturing to packaging) with very minimal human intervention during the process.
The Plant has a lean organizational structure consisting of Plant Head, Resource Leaders and Associates. Close to 199 associates are currently employed in the Plant. Most of the associates are locals and freshly passed out students from high school. They undergo CavinKare sponsored course in manufacturing from Dehradun Institute of Technology for 1 month for concept development. The students have an in-Plant on job training for 1 year before they get finally absorbed in Company rolls.
