Savitri Veneers based in Hoshiarpur, Punjab State, India, has started commercial production of reconstituted veneers at its newly established plant, ITTO eported.

This is India’s first reconstituted veneer manufacturing plant and has an annual capacity of around 5,000 cubic metres.

Since the log export ban in Myanmar, India’s face veneer market has become unstable and veneer prices have more than doubled. With the logging ban in Myanmar the steady supply of Gurjan veneers cannot be assured. Laos is an alternative source but developments there have raised questions on the sustainability of exports.

The reconstituted veneer plant in Hoshiarpur will be using local plantation timber and the company has developed its own glue manufacturing facility.

Savitri Veneers is said to be targeting the market in northern India initially but expects to expand production to 20,000 cubic metres so as to market throughout India.
