We, "Encore Natural Polymers Private Limited", are an Indian company in the business of manufacturing different native and derivatized natural polymers for varied applications. Our company was previously known as "Indian Gum Industries Ltd." (IGI). Today, owing to the reorganization of the parent Merchant family, the Ahmedabad business division of IGI independently operates under the name Encore Natural Polymers Private Limited.


Since our inception in 1958, we have been pioneers in the field of manufacturing native and derivatized polysaccharides, and, in recent years, have kept abreast of emerging, modern, and state-of-the-art technologies and products to develop quality gums for diverse applications. We currently manufacture and export natural polymers for use as textile printing thickeners, in oil drilling and fracturing fluids, and as paint, construction, and paper additives.


Our R&D manufacturing and testing laboratories, combined with our application laboratories enable us to customize our products to our clients’ requirements. Additionally these units allow us to constantly innovate and evolve our product offering.


Our products, adherence to strict quality control measures, and our focus on customer satisfaction have earned us a name in the international market. We now face significant demand for our products around the world, our primary markets being the oil drilling and fracturing industry, the textile industry, and the paint industry. Our textile printing thickeners command a premium price in India, China, Turkey, Italy, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Pakistan and South America due to the high quality standards we maintain, as well the consistency in quality of the products. Our paint additives have been widely used worldwide.


We strive to provide excellent customer service, working jointly with our customers to modify and improve products to meet their exact needs. We are always looking for ways in which we can improve our customers’ experience with our products, whether by blending multiple products, modifying manufacturing methods, or creating new, patented products for sole dealership rights.
