KICL, A century tenured fertilizing company began in 1917. It all started, when C M Kothari started his business as a stock and share broker in the name of Kothari & Sons, which was later followed by Dr. D C Kothari, who entered into the agro-based industry.
In 1970 all of the above companies were amalgamated into KMIL (Kothari Madras International Limited). Presently, the company’s activity is limited to manufacturing SSP and mixing and trading in fertilizers from its Ennore factory.
The Ennore factory was started, as early as 1961, located in a sprawling 41 acres of land, adjoining the Ennore railway station, with a production capacity of 125,000 MTs per annum.
Kothari has a strong network of around 8246 fertilizer dealers across Tamil-Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, and Kerala, covering all the core areas.
At KICL we time and again believe that we must make a difference to the Indian farmer. We produce high-quality fertilizers and insecticides catering to the Indian farmer’s need to protect and nurture his crops..
