Since its establishment in 1945, Wipro has evolved into a global conglomerate boasting a diverse portfolio of businesses, especially since 1984. The group is present in more than 60 countries and regions, encompassing more than 37 brands covering personal care, home care, men’s grooming, health, spices and packaged foods. Among these, the Group’s Enchanteur brand has been deeply engaged in the Chinese market since the 1990s. At present, the Group’s companies in China have developed into a brand matrix, commanding significant market shares in various segments. Notably, they hold the third market share of shower gel, the second market share of beads and soap, and the second brand of laundry detergent in South China, providing high-quality personal care and home care solutions for millions of Chinese consumers.

Nagender Arya, President East Asia & Business Development of Wipro Group, stated: “We have always believed in the Chinese market, with the continuous upgrading of the business environment in Guangdong Province and the overall supply chain of consumer goods. On the one hand, the group has focused on tapping the growth potential and innovation ability of Chinese local brands since 2016. We have invested and built the group’s most advanced production and research base in Guangzhou Zengcheng Development Zone, including the introduction of international management system, production equipment and the establishment of talent training system, with a total investment of more than 258 million yuan ($35.69 million). On the other hand, we are committed to tapping the potential of local consumption. The marketing research and development team has been focusing on the unmet needs of local consumers for a long time, integrating the formula advantages of local brands, using the efficient local supply chain to quickly bring out the new products, so that a number of traditional Guangdong brands will be injected with new vitality. For example, Pahnli laundry detergent and laundry capsule have become the second largest brand in South China with their unique sweet and soft clothing care formula. Zici shower gel, a traditional Guangdong brand, has been studying the traditional Chinese moisturizing ingredient – pearl – for 25 years, and has improved the purification technology of pearl essence. So far, one out of every five Guangdong families is using it.”
