The South African High Commissioner to India, France K Morule, visited FACT plants and held discussions with Jaiveer Srivastava, CMD, other functional directors and senior officials of FACT.

The High Commissioner visited the FACT Cochin Division plant at Ambalamedu. He also visited FRBL plant (FACT-RCF Building Products Ltd), a joint venture of FACT & RCF, which produces glass fibre reinforced gypsum (GFRG) panels, for making rapid and cost-efficient houses/buildings.

FACT requires around 1.5 lakh tonnes of phosphoric acid in a year. Out of this, the company is buying around 0.75 lakh tonnes from outside sources and making the balance quantity in-house, for which it requires around 2.5 lakh tonnes rock phosphate per year.

Rock phosphate is one of the main raw materials for producing phosphoric acid. South Africa has good deposit of rock phosphate.

It was pointed out that there was a huge scope for expansion of ties between similar companies in South Africa and FACT.
