New plant to be built in Andhra Pradesh, India, in 2023

Greenlam South Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Greenlam Industries Limited headquartered in New Delhi, India, has ordered a high-end particleboard plant from DIEFFENBACHER for its new manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh. Commercial production of up to 265,000 m³ of particleboard per year is expected by the fourth quarter of financial year 2023-24.

With more than 5,000 employees, a network of over 14,000 channel partners and a production capacity of 15.62 million sheets of HPL per annum, Greenlam is among the world’s top three producers of laminates. Saurabh Mittal, Managing Director & CEO at Greenlam Industries, said, “Our new DIEFFENBACHER particleboard plant marks our third production unit in India and puts us on a path to becoming a leading wood-panel producer in India.” Greenlam has 15 international offices and four international distribution centers from which it exports products to more than 100 countries.

DIEFFENBACHER will supply the new plant’s forming station and forming line with prepress, the CPS+ continuous press with press emission control system, the raw board handling system and the dryer. Also included are engineering, electrics and plant automation for the complete plant and the proven and highly flexible Lukki raw board storage system.

Greenlam’s new high-end particleboard plant will feature EVORIS, DIEFFENBACHER’s new digital platform. “EVORIS will help us to understand and control our plant in a better and easier manner,” said UN Sarma, President - Manufacturing Chip Board & Engineering Services. “When DIEFFENBACHER introduced us to the EVORIS platform, we were immediately hooked. I strongly believe it is the future of wood-based panel production,” he concluded.

“EVORIS is a real success story,” stated Stefan Zipf, head of the Wood business unit at DIEFFENBACHER. “Since introducing the digital platform at LIGNA.Innovation Network in September 2021, we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers and a large number of inquiries to implement EVORIS in new and existing plants. We are very happy that Greenlam South will be among the first companies to benefit from EVORIS.”
