Commenting on the company’s performance, Mr. Sajjan Bhajanka, Chairman, Century Plyboards(India) Ltd said
“We are very happy with the robust growth witnessed in sales spurred on by the MDF division. This comes despite very difficult market conditions characterized by resurgence in the unorganised sector on account of the late introduction of the E-way bill and a lack of compliance of GST due to lower vigilance. Going forward we are confident that the growth in plywood and laminates should be far superior as compliance increases. ”.
