Yamunanagar plywood industry cluster


The industrial city of Yamunanagar (Haryana) has a large cluster of plywood industries, in addition to various other small, medium and large industries manufacturing products such as sugar and paper machinery, metal utensils, railway parts, and equipment for petrochemical plants. The plywood industries have come up mainly due to the easy availability of the primary raw material for making plywood, i.e., poplar trees, in the locality. About 50% of the plywood used in India is produced in this cluster. The Yamunanagar plywood cluster has been taken under the Ministry of MSME’s Micro & Small Enterprises - Cluster Development Programme (MSE-CDP) for establishment of a Common Facility Centre that will benefit the units by way of improving product quality, reduce product costs, etc.
