In 2001, KNPL embarked upon Mission 2010 - the aim was to replace the sick units with environment-friendly plants powered by latest technology.
KNPL, which started in 1920 as Gahagan Paints and Varnishes Company at Lower Parel, Mumbai, kicked off the first phase of Mission 2010 by shutting down all the old four plants, in Kanpur, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
