About Us

who we are

Waldies is one of the largest manufacturers of Lead Oxides in India. It owes its name to Dr. David Waldie, who was born in the early 19th century in Linlithgow, Scotland. We manufacture numerous specialty chemicals which are used by India’s finest industries.

The manufacturing facility  is located on the bank of River Ganges in West Bengal. Waldies was the first company to introduce the production of Sulfuric Acid in India.

hISTORY OF WALDIES

Dr. David Waldie, a renowned chemist in Scotland came to India in the year 1857 and started his chemical works as Waldies brand in the year 1858. The factory was set near Cossipure, which was later moved to Konnagar, where the facility still remains in production, since over 150 years. The company has always been in operation as corporate structure. Even after India got independence, the company continued to produce under Waldies brand.

Dr. Waldie was also considered to be one of the first scientists in the world who introduced the application of chloroform and anesthesia. In his studies which was observed by Sir James Simpsons, who currently holds the title as the “Founder" of Anesthesia, Dr. Waldie suggested formulation which were a part of the original research. Although credit was never given to the Scottish chemist, who then, came to India to setup his own chemical company.
