New President of Universal Polymers Corporation (UPC)

Laxmi “Lax” Gupta built one of the largest family-owned systems houses in the United States under his leadership over his 50-year career in the polyurethanes industry. He ran a family and customer-centric business enterprise and focused on innovation through Research and Development, leading to high-performance products produced under the strictest quality control procedures. He left an enduring legacy which will be continued by his wife, Urmila Gupta, and his three children, Dr. Shalesh Gupta, Dr. Anjula Gupta, and Dr. Sandeep Gupta, who are actively involved in managing all of his businesses. Many other family members and now the third generation, Lax’s grandchildren, have started to enter the businesses as well.

The owners of Universal Polymers Corporation (A division under General Coatings Manufacturing Corporation) would like to announce the appointment of Mr. Deepak Mittal as the new President of Universal Polymers Corporation (UPC).

“I am honored and thrilled to be named President of UPC and to continue the vision of our founder, Lax Gupta. It is an exciting time for UPC since we are uniquely positioned as one of the few family-owned businesses to remain in our industry. We currently have and are continuing to build an extremely talented team who is focused on putting our customers first. UPC is making continuous strides to offer the highest quality products in the industry.” – Deepak Mittal
