Rushil Decor announces strategic expansion into eco-friendly plywood


In a significant move to bolster its position in the modern interior infrastructure market, Rushil Decor Limited (RDL), recognized globally for its innovative and eco-friendly wood panels, has unveiled its plans to enter the eco-friendly plywood segment. With its rich legacy in sustainable Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) and laminates, the company is now setting its sights on revolutionizing the plywood industry through environmentally responsible practices.

The introduction of eco-friendly plywood by RDL marks a pivotal step towards environmental conservation. This new product line will utilize wood sourced from agroforestry, an approach that leverages wasteland for the cultivation of wood trees, thereby ensuring a renewable supply of wood without contributing to deforestation. This initiative is a testament to Rushil Decor’s commitment to an integrated green ecology approach, aiming to make a positive environmental impact.
