Orientbell Tiles, located at Sikandrabad (UP), has restarted another manufacturing line (MF2) that was closed for more than a couple of years. This line increases the production capacity by more than a million sq.mt per annum, and employs, an additional 100 people.
The increase in manufacturing capacity reflects the increasing demand from customers for brands that provide reliable supply and a wide variety of sizes/designs in required lot sizes.
Orient Bell Limited had last installed a new manufacturing line (MF4) in FY 2018-19 to manufacture large format tiles viz. Digital Glazed Vitrified Tiles (DGVT) and Polished Glazed Vitrified Tiles (PGVT). Responding to a query, Anil Agarwal, Chief Operations Officer, shared that the production on this manufacturing line is now at full capacity.
