He holds an Honours Bachelor's degree in Commerce from the University of Kolkata and has over 30 years of experience in managing large- scale industrial companies.

He is renowned in the chemical industry and has contributed immensely to developing and introducing quality chemicals including MEG and other speciality chemicals, ethyl alcohols and natural gums among many others. Mr Bhartia was also conferred the Udyog Ratna award in 2005.

Under his able leadership since 1996, the company has grown from a single product of mono ethylene glycols from a single plant at Kashipur, to multiple products including EOD, glycol ethers, ethyl alcohol (potable), natural gums, industrial gases, nutraceuticals and sugar at four different plant locations, including a sugar plant at Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh.
