History

Yash Papers (located in Faizabad, India) is synonymous with machine-glazed varieties of  paper. Our brand revolves around the manufacture of the best wrapping grades of  papers in India. The Company manufactures MG wrapping papers in both  brown and white varieties.
 
Established in 1981, by entrepreneur-promoter KK  Jhunjhunwala - with an installed capacity of 1940 MT per annum in 1983, Yash  Papers started production of low grammage kraft grades. Once this first paper  machine became stable, additional capacity of about 2000 MTPA was created on  this machine.
 
In the year 1991, the Company set up its Paper  Machine II, with a capacity of up to 6000 MTPA, taking the overall capacity to  10,000 MTPA. This machine also specialized in low grammage kraft varieties.  This new machine, along with the enhanced capacity of the old one, helped to  create dominance over the low grammage kraft market for the Company.
 
In the year 1995, Yash Papers set up its own 2.5 MW  Power Plant, with an Extraction-cum-Condensation Turbine. This was a  revolutionary step for a mill of its size at that time. This lower  cost of power gave it an added advantage over  other mills, and further helped brand Yash to become established in the market.  At the same time, the Company set up further capacity enhancements to its Paper  Machine II, and boosted total production to 16,000 MTPA.
 
In 2007, Yash Papers, grew to more than double of its  capacity, by installing a totally new integrated plant, setting up a pulp mill,  producing 130 TPD, Paper Machine III, to produce bleached MG grades of papers  with a total capacity of 70 TPD, a chemical recovery unit, and a 6 MW Power  Plant. This plant is running at full capacity from 2008. 
 
At the present time, Yash Papers has grown into the  largest manufacturer of wrapping grades in India, with a present installed capacity of 39,100 MT per  annum. Yash Papers practices a singular discipline, focus on specialty products  and quality and has a culture of ploughing back surpluses into additional  capacity.
 
The consistent feature of our business strategy has  been value-addition. We invested periodically in the manufacture of specialized  grades – a distinctive preference for the value approach over a volume one.
 
This preference for the value-approach is reflected  in the Company’s product mix - hard tissue, wrapping grades, packaging, and  stationery grades. These varieties are used in specialised downstream  applications like soap wrapping, food wrapping, pharmaceutical covers,  interleaving sheets, laminating sheets, paper bag, bidi wrapping, gum tape,  notebook covering paper, PE coating in mattress, tube light packaging among  others.
 
So even as we are based in India, our products find loyal customers in countries  across the globe.
