Chairman’s Message

The ability to change with time requires perseverance and grit.

Over the last few decades, the growth of the Indian rural economy places an ever-growing demand for the most ideal and low cost roofing solution and it is here that we step in. As a business conglomerate, UAL Industries Ltd not just fills the vacuum of being a premier manufacturer of the very best and ideal roofing solutions but has also helped in realizing and meeting the housing demands of the rural milieu.

Through our products like – Fibre Cement corrugated roofing sheets, plain sheets and moulded accessories, we have become a trusted brand for many.

For over three decades, UAL has been dedicatedly catering to the roofing needs for the rural masses in Eastern India. In tandem with the intensifying demand, the capacity of UAL has also been substantially augmented. As of today, “Konark” crowns the houses in more than 3 lac villages in Eastern India. “Konark” has not only became the most sought after brand in Eastern India but is also the region’s largest producer & seller of Fibre Cement corrugated sheets of world-class standards, and a glorious market leader in the low-cost roofing segment.

The Indian rural economy is estimated to grow significantly over the next decade.

India has been witnessing tremendous growth in the building and construction sector for the past few years and the Green Building Movement has also gained tremendous momentum. This has led to a demand for environmentally-sustainable construction techniques. Keeping this in mind, the Company, as a measure of diversification in the field of Building Materials, has forayed into Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) building blocks by setting up a unit in technical collaboration with the world famous European company ‘HESS AAC SYSTEMS’ who are the pioneers in AAC machinery. This collabaoration has also led to the birth of KON_CRETE , our Green Building material brand and a product of the future. KON_CRETE  AAC blocks are light weight, heat & sound proof, consume less mortar and energy and significantly reduce the labour cost and are ideal for high rise buildings, malls, hotels, hospitals etc.

The last three decades have also witnessed our strong foothold in the markets that we operate in. Thanks to UAL’s R&D division who have been instrumental in helping us achieve this by supporting us in delivering greater value to our customers. Our innovation cell is an in-house incubator that shapes not only the future of our Company but also the green building products and low cost housing industry.

As a responsible corporate entity of India, UAL has been actively contributing to the social and economic development of the communities in which it operates, through various CSR activities.

We are also taking continuous steps to attract the best talent, develop our people, and create a working environment in which we all feel excited and passionate about our work.

Safety is another area where UAL has been consistently making a mark by providing a safe working place for all its employees.

With clear goals, focus on innovation and an engaged workforce, UAL is well on its way to become an organization of global repute.

Our vision is to be the country’s largest and most trusted eco friendly low cost Fibre Cement Sheet and Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) block manufacturer and marketer through customer satisfaction and sustainable growth. We strive to become a 1200 crore turnover company by 2020. We extend a warm welcome to all those who share our vision of a future of sustainable development and growth. Together, I am confident that we will provide the future energetic solutions.

I would like to thank all our stakeholders – shareholders, customers, suppliers, vendors, partners, employees and their families, the Governments and various regulatory agencies for the support extended to us and I hope to continue to receive your support in the future.

To be successful, you need “Friends”

To be very successful, you need “Enemies”

With best wishes,

Mr. Arun Kumar Saraf
