Sivakasi is synonymous with matches. With fireworks . A gorgeous burst of colours flaming the night sky and the
festival din of crackers booming the joy of kids! Ayyan Nadar began it all in Sivakasi way back in 1923. His life is a scintillating saga of vision, vim and dynamism. Blazing a new trail
Ayyan started producing safety matches.
He never looked back.
