Nuway Organic Naturals (India) was incorporated on July 10, 1995 as a public limited company and is restructuring by venturing into new business activities. Earlier known as Mohindra Papers, it got its present name with effect from March 24, 2004. The Company obtained certificate of commencement of business on July 11, 1995. After incorporation of the company, the promoters analysed various alternatives of putting up the project in trading of all type of papers, duplex board, craft papers, tissue papers, mill board, wall papers, corrugated board, grey board, 3-colour board, railway ticket board, etc. in the local and International market. The company has finalised the land at village Gaunspur near Humbran, District Ludhiana (Punjab) and a part of conveyance deed has been dully executed and registered in favour of the company for the construction of godown out of the octroi limits of Ludhiana. The estimate of all the fixed capital expenditures has been obtained. The company has also taken on its board P D Keshri, who has 30 years rich experience in paper industry.
The company has obtained estimates for construction of godown and office block from Radhe Shyam Sharma, an architect. Mainly the company is planning to import waste papers which are used by paper industries as a basic raw material. Waste paper is available in foreign market in abundance as the paper industry being highly polluting industry and most of the paper units in foreign countries are being forced to shut down because of the stringent pollution control regulations. Because of these reasons the waste paper is not consumed by the local industry (in the foreign market) and is lying in abundance and available at highly competitive prices for the above purpose. One of the NRI directors, Ravinder Paul Mohindra, who has settled in the UK will look after the procurement and shipment of the waste paper. Rajinder Paul Mohindra, director of the company has also visited UK for preliminary discussions with the foreign suppliers.
A project for manufacturing vodka is also being implemented by the company. This would be the first time vodka as an indigenous product will be produced in India. For this project, it has entered into a joint venture/technical arrangement with Punjab Agro Industrial Corporation for manufacturing potato-based vodka. A bathing soap plant has also been put up at Baddi in Himachal Pradesh. During the year FY07, there were no sales as both the projects have yet to commence production.
The company is also planning to export paper to under-developed countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Iran, etc. The company has already made connections in Bangladesh regarding export of paper and duplex board.
