About Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation

History

Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation Limited (BBTCL), a multi-faceted organisation, operates in various sectors such as plantations (including tea and coffee), auto electric components, healthcare, and real estate.

The company, with its largest tea plantation in the Anamallai district of South India, specialises in producing and marketing high-quality coffees like Washed Arabica and Robusta, particularly in the speciality segment. Key products from its dental division include dental alloy, impression materials, and X-ray films.

Originally established in 1863 as the Burmah Trading Company, after acquiring William Wallace’s assets in Burma, the corporation changed its name to Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation to differentiate itself from a similarly named entity.

Since 1863, BBTCL has been the leading global tea company for over eight decades, handling up to half of the world’s tea supply. However, post-war political shifts in Burma and Thailand necessitated a strategic redirection, leading to expansions in North Borneo, East Africa, and the Andamans.

The corporation acquired AFCO, a Bombay-based small craft industry, in 1958, making it a subsidiary. In 1962, they launched Formica India in collaboration with Formica International and the American Cynamid Company, focusing on laminate production. The BCL spring division emerged following the erstwhile Bombay Company (BCL) merger.

BBTCL’s divisions, such as Formica and Springs, achieved ISO 9002 accreditation in the mid-1990s, with the Oothu factory receiving the same for tea production in 1998. The same year, on January 1, 1998, the company was listed on the NSE and BSE.

The late 1990s and early 2000s saw challenges in labour at the Singampatti Group of Tea Estates and innovations in the Electromags division, although new product development faced delays. The dental division successfully launched a new dental X-ray film in 2015.

The company strategically decided to mitigate losses in the plantation division by closing down uneconomical operations in 2017. Recently, Go Airlines (India) Limited and National Peroxide Ltd became associates of the corporation as of January 10, 2023.
