The Best Plywood Supplier in India

Are you someone who is starting a project and is trying to figure out which company is the best to purchase their plywood supplies from? If so, then this blog is for you. When it comes to construction projects, plywood is an absolute must. But there are thousands of plywood suppliers all across India, how do you pick the best one? 

Firstly, there are certain standards that a manufacturer must follow in order to be the best plywood company in India. As you read this article further, we’ll go over a few of them to help you get a better idea of what we’re talking about.

So, what makes a plywood company the best? Here is a list of things you need to ask yourself before settling on a brand.

Do they have what you need? 

The bigger the menu the fancier the restaurant. Make sure you are choosing a supplier who can meet all your plywood requirements. Make a list of things you need and seek out a supplier who can provide you with all of those requirements. For example, we at Apply Ply offer all kinds of plywood, be it waterproof, fire retardant or pre-laminated. 

Do they have a good reputation?

Going with a plywood manufacturer with a well-known brand name is always a safer option. When a company is known for their reputation in the industry, you can expect them to have good customer service as well as excellent monitoring systems in place to satisfy the customers’ requirements. If you have heard people talk about this brand often or if their name comes up in conversations where you’re talking about the product, they most definitely have a good reputation.

How long have they been manufacturing and supplying plywood? 

Just like the saying goes “with experience comes wisdom”, a company that has been supplying materials for a longer period of time will have a better understanding of your needs. A commercial plywood manufacturer like AK Group’s Apply Ply who have four decades of experience can help you find what you need with ease. 

What do the reviews say? 

Besides reputation and experience, reviews are another factor that you need to look into. The most credible sources of information are the people who have worked with the brand or purchased their products previously. This will help you get a better understanding of how their systems and operations work. 

Are they ISI certified? 

Always look for ISI certification to ensure that the plywood is of high quality. The mark verifies that the product complies with an Indian standard developed by the Bureau of Indian Standards(BIS). The ISI mark will always be present on the plywood, so be on the lookout for it when shopping for high-quality plywood. 

Are they FSC certified? 

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization that promotes environmentally responsible and socially beneficial forestry around the world. The FSC accreditation is given to companies that ensure their goods are recyclable and created from materials sourced from sustainably managed forests. As we are entering an era where sustainability is given a lot of importance, having FSC certified plywood will help.  AK group’s Apple Ply offers plywood that’s FSC and ISI certified. With a wide range of plywood collections, we have been India’s long-term manufacturers of allied wood since 1984.
