Mr. Shobhan Mittal, Joint Managing Director and CEO, explained the company’s decisions and stated that “ The Indian market has been stuck in the old ways of making furniture while the consumer is ever involving and seeking contemporary new age wood panelling solutions which pave the way for durable and aesthetic interiors. We observed a strong gap between consumer needs and market offerings. With a rapidly evolving product portfolio and setting up of the largest and most technologically advanced plants in the country, it was time to evolve ourselves and our vision in order to strongly reiterate our commitment to take the Indian wood panelling industry forward. “
Greenpanel has emerged from the rich legacy of Green Panelmax and Green Floormax. With its rebranding we are redefining our commitment to innovation in the wood panelling industry. The Chittoor plant, being Asia’s largest MDF manufacturing plant, not only consolidates our leadership in the wood panelling industry, but also significantly improves the logistics by ensuring that orders to South India are supplied in shorter time spans.”
