Sylvan Plyboard India Pvt. Ltd. (SPIPL) belongs to the house of the Singh Group, plywood makers, since 2009. The group made a modest beginning as the manufacturer of sawn timber and some other wood-products in 1951. But it was soon to venture into international trade in the year 1998, under the leadership of its Chairman-Director duo, Mr. J. P. Singh & Mr. Anand Kumar Singh.

Importing timber log from East Asian countries and setting up offices in Lagos, Nigeria, Singapore and South Africa were part of this activity. It was after this initial business consolidation that the Singh Group forayed onto a different track with their flagship company Sylvan Plyboard India Pvt. Ltd (formerly known as Singh Brothers Exim Pvt. Ltd). With its huge experience in the field of timber and ample commercial and technical expertise in the making of plywood and other plywood-related products, SPIPL soon set up a Veneer, Plywood, Block Board, Flush Door & Resin manufacturing plant near Kolkata. This plant was solely dedicated to manufacturing products for SPIPL’s new brand Sylvan Ply.

After a humble & modest beginning in July 2009, plywood products from the brand of Sylvan Ply have attained a pan-India presence & have been accepted widely.

Raw Materials

The finest quality of imported high-density timber and American Pinewood / New Zealand Pinewood, extracted from the choicest trees goes into the making of Plywood / Block Board / Flush Door in our factory.

Ply from imported high-density timber : Made from imported high-density timber , this variety of plywood has a density much higher than its ordinary counterparts. This makes it more compact and dimensionally more stable. It has naturally straight grains that make the plywood warp-free. Its logs are totally stress-free too, which allows the ply made from imported high-density timber to be more smooth and durable. This variety of ply also offers more resistance to moisture and also to borers and termites.

Block Board-fillers made with American & New Zealand Pinewood: The species used as fillers for manufacturing quality block boards are soft, durable, termite-resistant and has a low shrinkage capacity which thereby contributes to its stability. Not only that, these species are denser and more resinous as well. They are used in making block-boards for high-value carpentry.

Quality resin developed in-house: The resin that goes into the bonding of the internal layers in the plywood pieces is also another important component. The in-house PF or MUF resin plant of Sylvan Ply is one of the countrys most modern resin plants,The process of making resin is done under expert supervision and the resin is tested as per IS certification. This kind of resin when used in bonding of panels gives excellent internal bonding strength which does not deteriorate under any climatic change.
