Every little component like pencil lacquer, sharpeners blade, screws, pen’s tips are made in-house to ensure impeccable quality standards.
We do not use any forest wood for manufacturing pencils. Our concern for the environment has led us to develop own plantations. Moreover, we procure wood from the farmers who either grow trees on their farm, land or in the courtyard of their residential premises. This practice ensures uninterrupted supply of wood of consistent quality. It also helps protect bio-diversity and maintain ecological balance.
Constant efforts are made by the company to improve processes and maximize 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.
