Bamboo Board Factory


Bamboo Board Factory was established in 1985, to produce value added products using Bamboo mats as the main raw material, thus creating better employment opportunities to the traditional bamboo workers who mostly belong to economically backward classes. Commercial production started in 1990, in single shift and by 1993, due to increased market demand for Bambooply, additional production over and above the targeted production fixed between the Management and the Unions was there. In 1998, the second shift was started and the daily production was doubled.

Now 21,500 square feet (1998 Sq.meter) of Bambooply on 4 mm basis is produced daily on an average in normal conditions of working.
