It was in November 1999 that Polymerupdate first established an office in Mumbai, the business capital of India. Following rapid expansion polymerupdate quickly moved from a small office in Southern Mumbai to a larger office located in central Mumbai. In May 2002, the office once again shifted, this time to suburban Mumbai with a view to help trigger profits and cut high rent costs. At the time, the polymerupdate team had vowed that they would return to the central hub of the business district, not as tenants but as owners. On April 6 of this year the dream was fulfilled as the polymerupdate team moved to it's own office located at the very same premise it opted out off a few years earlier.
Recruiting personnel and increasing staffing levels have become a critical management issue for further expanding the scale of operations and enhancing client satisfaction at polymerupdate.com. With an eye on reaching it's goal of scaling new peaks to become the number one preferred destination worldwide for quality petrochemical news feeds and real time price alerts the polymerupdate office is located at 344, A - Z Industrial Estate, G. K. Marg, Near Peninsula Park, Lower Parel, Mumbai - 400013, Maharashtra, India.
Unlike the previous premises the floor plan has been designed based on the concept "Creative/Commitment/Comfort." The polymeupdate office occupies the third floor of the building and houses the head office of the group with a reception area, the CEO's cabin, senior management work areas, editorial, accounts and technology related work stations as well as a focus group interview room. A recreation zone and a fully equipped pantry have also been provided for the benefit of the employees.

Mr. Mitha exhorted the employees to" our company must remain most cost effective and use he whole world as a network of rich resources.
