Celebrating its silver jubilee in India, Waters India crossed Rs 458.5 crore in revenues last year. Waters India is the fastest growing Waters subsidiary in the world with a growth rate of over 26 percent. The strength of Waters India lies in the fact that the company is sharply focused on the separations segment, that has allowed
Waters India to maintain a leadership profile.
Today, almost 70 percent of the large and medium sized pharma companies in India use a Waters' product. It has been widely credited for pioneering the ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) systems worldwide. As the adoption of UPLC systems in quality control departments picks up pace, a strong growth in this segment is foreseen by Waters.
Waters India announced a host of new product launches in 2011-12. Three products were introduced in the mass spectrometry segment which includes the TQD tandem quadrupole mass detector. In the UPLC segment, Waters launched UPC2/Unify system and UPC I class.
Another remarkable achievement for Waters India was the first sale of its new product, UPLC Square, that was launched in India in May, just within a month of its global launch.
