The Indian Paper Industry is among the top 15 global players today, with an output of more than 6 millions tones annually. Paper Industry in India is riding on a strong demand and on an expanding mood to meet the projected demand of 8 million tons by 2010 & 13 million tons by 2020.
Demand for paper as well as paper board has increased considerably since independence thus resulting in the set up of a few major paper mills across the country. One of the major players who dominate the paper industry in the Indian sector is Khanna Paper Mills Private Limited.
Khanna Paper Mills Private Limited, is an ISO 9001:2000 certified company, manufacturing quality paper and board by recycling of waste paper as the feedstock for domestic consumption for a little over 4 decades. Although paper is traditionally identified with reading and writing, communication has now been replaced by packaging as the single largest category of paper use at 41% of all paper used. Khanna Paper Mills is the largest paper mill production house of its kind and is among the top ten in paper production in India.
Khanna today produces around 3,30,000 MT of board and writing and printing paper. Khanna has also become the first paper mill in India to produce high quality writing and printing board from 100% deinked woodfree recovered paper. Khanna Paper Mills distribution network of 100+ dealers has a reach not only over the length and breadth of India but across the globe with a focus on demand markets and exporting their products to the SAARC countries, Africa and the Middle East.
Khanna Paper Mills believs that the workspace plays a very major role in the productivity of an employee therefore the campus has a unique state-of- the- art infrastructure well equipped with the latest technology. The sprawling 100 acre Khanna Paper Mills campus houses:
Two plants that produce Board with a daily capacity of 400 tons
A plant that produces Newsprint with a daily capacity of 400 Tons
A plant that produces writing and printing paper with daily capacity of 400 Tons
Two plants that produce pulp by recycling of waste paper with a daily production capacity of 350 Tons
Industrialized paper making has an effect on the environment both upstream (where raw materials are acquired and processed) and downstream (waste-disposal impacts). Recycling paper reduces this impact. Factually recycling 1 ton of newsprint saves about 1 ton of wood while recycling 1 ton of printing or copier paper saves slightly more than 2 tons of wood.
Khanna Paper Mills “GO GREEN” initiative is a major breakthrough in the paper producing industry and Khanna Paper Mills feels proud to have introduced this initiative. Using recycled waste paper as the feedstock, Khanna Paper has revolutionized the Paper industry, thus gaining a heads up as a environment friendly organization, which strongly believes and practices saving and retaining the earthly glory of our planet.
Khanna Paper’s presence in USA strategically enables it to procure high quality recycle fiber from around the world. They procure 4,20,000 MT of waste paper annually through collaborative network of partners around the world for sourcing waste paper. The enduring relationships and contracts ensure cost and operational efficiency leading to long term sustainability.
