New Delhi – Sheela Foam, India's only publicly listed flexible foam maker, plans to increase its flexible foam production capacity by 20kT/year with a new plant at Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh in central India.
'We will produce PU foam with variable pressure foaming (VPF) technology at Jabalpur,' the company’s managing director, Rahul Gautam, said. ‘We are using the same technology at the two overseas sites in Spain and Australia. The VPF technology for which Sheela holds the right for certain markets would be introduced for the first time in India.’
The equipment will be imported from Opus Technical, based in Macclesfield, UK. Sheela said that this will give very consistent foam.
