    The BSE-listed company currently manufactures three types of paper — coated, uncoated and packaging board. The uncoated segment generates the highest revenue. “The additional capacity of 1.38 lakh tonnes will come from our plant in Sirpur (Telangana), where we aim to start production by April 2019,” said V Kumaraswamy, Chief Financial Officer, JK Paper. The plant will also help the company venture into the colour paper segment for the first time, he added.

    “Apart from capacity expansion in Sirpur Paper Mills, the company will further increase its capacity by adding 1.5 lakh tonnes in the next two years. This expansion will focus on the packaging board vertical,” said Kumaraswamy.

    The company registered a net profit of ₹109.57 crore for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, a sharp rise from ₹56.63 crore in the previous year period.
    “One of the major reasons for this could be lesser expenditure on transport. For the past few years, the company has been growing raw materials in areas closer to its mills. So, earlier, if the raw materials were available at a distance of 800 km, they can now be obtained within 250 km,” said Kumaraswamy.

The unit is a one of its kind model in India encouraging the use of recycled paper, saving energy, saving water, saving cost, creating jobs and reducing negative impact on the environment.

    AAI’s Paper Recycling Unit (PRU) is one of the prime Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects of AAI and is an admirable instance amongst PSUs on integrating business practices and CSR. The PRU works on the grounds of viable waste-to-energy systems.
