My understanding of company profile NIRMA Nirma is one of the few names-which is instantly recognized as a true Indian company which took on mighty multinationals and rewrote the marketing rules to win the heart of princess, i.e. the consumers. Nirma, the proverbial “Rags to Riches” saga of Dr.Karsanbhai patel,is a classic example of success of Indian companies in the face of stiff compitition.startin as a one man operation in 1969,today,it has about 14,000 employee base turnover is above 25,00 corers. India is one of the largest consumer economy, with burgeoning middle class in such a case Nirma aptly concentrated all its effective tools towards creating and building a strong preference towards its „value money „product. HERITAGE In scorching heat of 1969 a son of small-time farmer was trying to mix soda with few other intermediaries, to make a detergent produce. He was a qualified graduate and was working as a junior chemist in government laboratory. As a moon lighting activity he was making detergent in 100 sq.ft back yard home, using bare hands and bucket. Once the mixture is ready. He used to put it in polythene bag and was selling door to door…….Gradually, the product became accepted in consumer community, and the rest is known to one and all……… In short span, he captured the domestic market, with a quality product. He crafted low-to-medium consumer pockets-a whole new consumer segment detergent category. He took on mighty multi nationals and rewrote the market rules.

Produce a range of industrial chemical products which primarily serve as raw material or intermediates for soaps and detergent business. Market leadership in detergent market and fabric wash industry player in toilet soap industry. Wide distribution network. Weaknesses: High intrest burden Less presence in premium segment. Lack global tie ups and thus lacking in export market. Opportunities: Exports Acquisition for strengthening its distribution tie ups. Entry into other categories like shampoos, toothpastes and fabric whiteners. Threats: MNCs coming to India particularly in Toilet and Soap industry. Emergence of small but strong regional players. Competition…… In this era of competition Nirma is facing competition from many companies of India as well as MNCs.Still because of customer satisfaction and product reliability it is able to stand in the market with higher profitability. In order to stand in the market while doing advertisement Nirma takes the help of the medium like television, news paper and various other mediums……… My understanding of company profile: As I have prepared this report I come to know many things about this company.In this era and in era of globalization most of companies believe in profit making in such a situation Nirma is that company which takes into consideration customer satisfaction above all aspects.Because of this reason Nirma is able to capture more and more customer market and with that able to increase its profit. Apart from only producing FMCG products Nirma also opened up education institutes by doing this Nirma also contribute in building the strong future of India.which will be benefitial to India in many ways thus contributing to corporate social responsibility……..
