Mr. Kurian Abraham
Hardly any company in India can claim the tradition and leadership of the Ooppoottil Group in the field of latex processing and latex gloves production.  The group today has two feathers in its cap.  India's largest latex concentrate processor and the country's largest latex gloves producer.  The trajectory of this exuberant growth rising from the scratch to the zenith is exciting by any count.

The late Kurian Abraham, father of Mr. A Kurian, the present Managing Director of Kurian Abraham Private Limited, set up a centrifuging latex plant with an early model of the De-Laval latex separator (L 779) imported from Denmark, the daily output of which was only 2,055 kg.  This set in motion supply of standardised latex concentrate from the estate sector of India with technical specifications.

Glove Production

There are two major units for production of gloves under the Ooppoottil Group, the Kurian Abraham Private Limited (KAPL) and the Kanam Latex Industries Private Limited (KLIP).  These produce a wide range of gloves best suited to healthcare, industrial and household sectors.  While medical gloves, especially surgical gloves, find easy acceptance in the sophisticated markets overseas, major share of the industrial and household gloves enjoy prime position in the domestic market.  The manufacturing units are situated on a total area of 530,000 sq. ft. with an imposing built up area of over 250,000 sq. ft. in Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu.
