Mumbai around Kalyan. Being an industrial zone, it is a home to several small and large
chemical factories. The self-contained town consists of four Industrial Areas (4 MIDC'S). An
Ordnance Factory of the Ordnance Factories Board has been established by the Government of
India which is one of the reasons for Ambernath developing into a residential neighbourhood.

matchsticks, is located in Ambernath on the Kalyan-Badlapur Road. It consists of one of the

neighbourhood of Mumbai, since it is far away from the pollution of the main city. There are a
large number of textile-based cottage industries in close proximity to Ambernath. Rich in culture
