The Indian market has seen large import of materials from global companies and Indian traders dumped in the vast Indian market for decades but could never imagine of any new innovative material will be developed and will get global access with its brand to reach international market.

This has been made true and a new chapter was opened when internationally known TEXON International and a Kolkata based manufacturer M/s APL POLYFAB (P) LTD signed a universal agreement to market and further develop RENOTEX jute board for footwear and other applications.

Mr Stan Lamb, COO, TEXON and Mr Mani Almal, MD, APL Polyfab signed the agreement in December 07 after having an MOU made during Jan 2007.

“At Texon we believe the sustainability of natural resources and our responsibility to be part of environmental protection – which includes sensitive recyclables - is very important in a world under stress.

I know that our customers have similar sentiments. This alliance with APL Polyfab and the promotion of natural fibres is, for Texon, a logical step forward along this path.”, said Mr Stan Lamb, the Chief Operating Officer of the Texon International Group Ltd.

“It was during 2000, I started to focus on natural and environmental products and Jute was found as one of the best natural crop fibre with surplus production in our state of Bengal with potential in diversified applications due to its properties”, said Mr Mani Almal, Managing Director, APL POLYFAB (P) LTD and added that this project could only go on stream with support from Advance Composite Mission of TIFAC - DST under Ministry of Science & Technology, New Delhi and National Centre For Jute Diversification (NCJD) under Ministry of Textiles, Kolkata.
