Yash Papers (located in Ayodhya, India) is synonymous with machine-glazed varieties of paper. Our brand revolves around the manufacture of the best wrapping grades of papers in India. The Company manufactures MG wrapping papers in both brown and white varieties.
Established in 1981, by entrepreneur-promoter KK Jhunjhunwala - with an installed capacity of 1940 MT per annum in 1983, Yash Papers started production of low grammage kraft grades. Once this first paper machine became stable, additional capacity of about 2000 MTPA was created on this machine.
In the year 1991, the Company set up its Paper Machine II, with a capacity of up to 6000 MTPA, taking the overall capacity to 10,000 MTPA. This machine also specialized in low grammage kraft varieties. This new machine, along with the enhanced capacity of the old one, helped to create dominance over the low grammage kraft market for the Company.
In the year 1995, Yash Papers set up its own 2.5 MW Power Plant, with an Extraction-cum-Condensation Turbine. This was a revolutionary step for a mill of its size at that time. This lower cost of power gave it an added advantage over other mills, and further helped brand Yash to become established in the market. At the same time, the Company set up further capacity enhancements to its Paper Machine II, and boosted total production to 16,000 MTPA.
In 2007, Yash Papers, grew to more than double of its capacity, by installing a totally new integrated plant, setting up a pulp mill, producing 130 TPD, Paper Machine III, to produce bleached MG grades of papers with a total capacity of 70 TPD, a chemical recovery unit, and a 6 MW Power Plant. This plant is running at full capacity from 2008.
At the present time, Yash Papers has grown into the largest manufacturer of wrapping grades in India, with a present installed capacity of 39,100 MT per annum. Yash Papers practices a singular discipline, focus on specialty products and quality and has a culture of ploughing back surpluses into additional capacity.
The consistent feature of our business strategy has been value-addition. We invested periodically in the manufacture of specialized grades – a distinctive preference for the value approach over a volume one.
This preference for the value-approach is reflected in the Company’s product mix - hard tissue, wrapping grades, packaging, and stationery grades. These varieties are used in specialised downstream applications like soap wrapping, food wrapping, pharmaceutical covers, interleaving sheets, laminating sheets, paper bag, bidi wrapping, gum tape, notebook covering paper, PE coating in mattress, tube light packaging among others.
So even as we are based in India, our products find loyal customers in countries across the globe.
