Its plants are located at Nagda (Madhya Pradesh) and at Vilayat (Gujarat), where a unit was recently commissioned.

 ABCIL is one of the leading chlor-alkali companies in India with three manufacturing plants located at Rehla (Jharkhand), Renukoot (UP) and Karwar (Karnataka) with an installed capacity of around 293,000 tonne of caustic soda per annum and 110 MW of captive power plant.
