GLOBAL SALESOur commitment to quality, competitive pricing, and our enormous manufacturing capacities have carried our products well beyond the Indian shores. At present, we export to over 50 countries.
We do not use any forest wood for manufacturing pencils. Our concern for the environment has led us to develop our own plantations. Moreover, we procure wood from the farmers who either grow trees on their farm, land or in the court yard of their residential premises. This practice ensures an uninterrupted supply of wood of consistent quality. It also helps protect bio-diversity and maintain ecological balance.
Constant efforts are made by the company in improving processes and maximizing utilization of inputs to prevent degradation of the environment.
All ingredients used by the company are non-toxic in nature. Research and Development efforts are also being made to switch over to eco-friendly water-based lacquers and PVC-free formulations.
