About the Company:
Centum Ply Industries was set up by Mr. B.K Paul in late 1996. At that point of time, timber was the main source of making household furniture. Owing to high cost and environmental problems, sourcing of wood became difficult and a big demand-supply gap was created. It was at this point of time that Mr Paul embarked upon his journey to manufacture high quality plywood to cater to this latent demand in Kolkata and West Bengal. With technical expertise from Malaysia, he set up this plywood factory in Diamond Harbor Road, West Bengal.
