HERITAGE The roots of the Aditya Birla Group date back to the 19th century in the picturesque town of Pilani, set amidst the Rajasthan desert. It was here that Seth Shiv Narayan Birla started trading in cotton, laying the foundation for the House of Birlas. India's arduous times of the 1850s, the Birla business expanded rapidly. In the early part of the 20th century, Group's founding father, Ghanshyamdas Birla, set up industries in critical sectors such as textiles and fibre, aluminium, cement and chemicals. The principles by which Ghanshyamdas Birla lived were soaked up by his grandson, Aditya Vikram Birla, Group's legendary leader.
Mr. Aditya Birla dared to dream of setting up a global business empire at the age of 24. He was the first to put Indian business on the world map. In the vibrant and free market South East Asian countries, he ventured to set up world-class production bases. He had foreseen the winds of change and staked the future of his business on a competitive, free market driven economy order. He put Indian business on the globe, 22 years before economic liberalisation. He set up 19 companies outside India, in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Egypt. Under his stewardship, his companies rose to be the world's largest producer of viscose staple fibre, the largest refiner of palm oil, the third largest producer of insulators and the sixth largest producer of carbon black. Apart from being a producer of cement, grey cement and rayon grade pulp. The Group is also the largest producer of aluminium in the private sector, the lowest first cost producers in the world.
The Group's revenues crossed Rs.8,000 crore globally, with assets of over Rs.9,000 crore, comprising of 55 benchmark quality plants, an employee strength of 75,000 and a shareholder community of 600,000. Most importantly, his companies earned respect and admiration of the people, as one of India's finest business houses, and the first Indian International Group globally. Through this outstanding record of enterprise, he helped create enormous wealth for the nation, and respect for Indian entrepreneurship in South East Asia. In his time, his success was unmatched by any other industrialist in India. Under the leadership of Chairman, Mr. Kumar Mangalam Birla, the Group has sustained and established a leadership position in its key businesses through continuous value-creation. Spearheaded by Grasim, Hindalco, Aditya Birla Nuvo, Indo Gulf Fertilisers and companies in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Egypt, the Aditya Birla Group is a leader in the products like— viscose staple fibre, aluminium, cement, copper, carbon black, palm oil, insulators, garments, financial services, telecom, software and BPO, the Group is today one of Asia's most diversified business groups.

STRATEGIES ADOPTED BY HINDALCO What is Hindalco's strategy to counter the increasing competition in the marketplace? Mr. Bhattacharya, M.D. of Hindalco answered that ….
CORPORATE STRATEGIES- COOPERATION Joint venture: o Hindalco in a joint venture with Almex USA Inc. Hindalco 1 nov 2006 entered into a joint venture partnership with Almex USA Inc., for the manufacture of high strength aluminium alloys for applications in the aerospace, sporting goods and surface transport industries.
Hindalco has 70 per cent equity participation, with Almex holding the balance 30 per cent in the JV. The joint venture envisages a capital outlay of Rs.155 crore at a production level of 46,000 tonnes. Hindalco is India's leading non ferrous metals company, with a turnover of over Rs.11,396.50 crore and net income of Rs.1,655.60 crore in the financial year 2005-06.
Acquisitions strategies: ( 1)Hindalco acquires Indal. (2)Birla Copper acquires the Nifty Copper Mines in Australia:September 23 Hindalco Industries, an Aditya Birla Group company, has made its second acquisition in Australia by entering into a sale-purchase agreement (SPA) for acquisition of mining assets of Mount Gordon copper mines in Australia. The acquisition is for a gross consideration of Australian $21 million and is expected to be completed on October 31, 2003. The group has stated that it is exploring further acquisitions as well.
(3)Indal merged with Hindalco: the Aditya Birla group flagship, 24 august 04 announced a merger with itself of all the businesses of Indian Aluminium Company (Indal), The face value of Indal shares will be reduced from Rs 10 per share to Rs 2. Hindalco has a 97 per cent stake in Indal and will continue to maintain it in demerged Indal. The merger will help Indal take up larger projects. It will help the Birla group save sales tax for inter- company transactions and realise the optimal use of depreciation from large investments
Barriers to entry 1)Economies of scale 2)Capital intensive 3)Higher gestation period 4)Government policies
Bargaining power of suppliers :-The bargaining power of suppliers is low for fully integrated aluminium smelters (upstream) as they have their own mines for key raw material like bauxite. Examples here could be Nalco and Hindalco Bargaining Power of Customers :-Being a commodity, customers enjoy relatively high bargaining power as prices are determined on demand and supply.
Competition is primarily on quality and price, as being a commodity, differentiation is difficult. However, the recent spate of consolidation has reduced the competitive pressure in the industry. Further, increasing value addition to aluminium products has helped some companies protect themselves from the high volatility witnessed in the industry. Competition:
Threat of substitutes On one side, the usage of aluminium is rising continuously in the automobile and construction sector but steel still remains a main substitute because of its relatively lower cost. aluminum’s usage in the power sector due to its higher conductivity. However, with properties like higher strength-to-weight ratio, durability, higher corrosion-resistance and relatively lower cost, aluminium is able to hold its own. Thus the usage of aluminium is likely to increase over a long term period
