One of the main strength of SPB, since inception, has been its highly experienced team of engineers. This team was responsible for successful planning and implementation of Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Limited (current capacity 1,80,000 tonnes per annum) which is the first bagasse based newsprint unit in the World. To exploit the availability of this in-house expertise commercially, in 1985, the Company promoted SPB-PC which has since grown to become the leading consultancy Company in paper industry in India and is also providing project related consultancy in sugar, ceramics, batteries, energy and environmental protection projects. SPB-PC is also the project consultants for major paper companies in India. They are one of the World Bank accredited Consultancy Companies, for their projects.
