One of the first players in India to manufacture baby and adult diapers, Noble Hygiene is expanding capacity by setting up a new manufacturing facility in North India. The company which will invest around Rs 25 crore in the new facility currently operates a plant in Nashik, Maharashtra, where it operates six production lines to manufacture diapers.
"We have seen the demand for adult diapers growing from zero in 2000 to approximately 10 crore pieces in 2016," Kamal Kumar Johari, managing director at Nobel Hygiene was quoted as saying by a leading daily.
"Besides, the baby diapers market is growing at 25-30 per cent a year. So, we are planning to set up a new factory in North India, either in NCR Delhi or in Uttar Pradesh this year," he added.
According to Johari, Noble Hygiene has been growing at 30-40 per cent for the last seven years as against the industry average of 20-25 per cent.
The company which exports its products to Middle East, Africa, Central Europe and USA has targeted to produce 20 lakh pieces of diapers per day by 2019, as against 10-12 lakh pieces currently. (AR)
