Commenting on the company’s performance, Mr. Sajjan Bhajanka, Chairman, Century Plyboards(I) Ltd said
“This has been an excellent set of results. It’s been a difficult and challenging business environment, for all manufacturers across the country but I think our foray into Particle Board and MDF has shown phenomenal results. Laminates, we have been able to progress quiet well and as it was indicated earlier, our EBDITA margin have improved substantially. Plywood is currently under lot of pressure but we have been able to maintain volume and profitability, which I think given the current scenario has been a very good achievement. Going forward our target will be to further improve our Plywood performance, in terms of both volume and growth and maintain the same in other product categories as well.”
