History

It all began over a game of pool when two individuals identified opportunity in the plastic film industry way back in 1996. This passion was invigorating that both these individuals left their lucrative careers and committed career suicide in an industry they both knew nothing about.

This was the beginning of the Polydime journey in 1998. From humble beginnings the organization commenced operations as a polythene trading company. With just two members on staff, a second hand extruder installed in a de-commissioned tile factory and a loan shark’s capital of Rs. 500,000/- began the Polydime journey.

The road since has been with many up’s and down’s. The will to survive and thrive in the changing industry together with a fighting spirit to stay ahead has been ingrained in the DNA of the organization.
