KiTEC INDUSTRIES (INDIA) PVT. LTD., an ISO 9001 company, is a joint venture promoted to manufacture revolutionary piping system popularly known as "KiTEC Composite Pipes". The company commenced its manufacturing operation in technical and financial collaboration with KiTECHNOLOGY BV, Netherlands at its Silvassa (India) plant in October, 1996. The past four decades account for accelerating the trend towards the use of alternative materials, particularly plastics and ceramics based, as replacement for metals including steel and non-ferrous materials (Copper, aluminium and brass). In India, GI pipes are being extensively used for domestic water distribution system. However, this trend is changing and use of alternative materials such as copper is being already thought of. High cost of copper piping is a major factor which is keeping the use of this pipe to very low levels.
