The Laminate business was established in 1980 as the first of its kind manufacturing unit for the production of high-pressure decorative laminates in Pakistan under the brand name of FORMITE.
Having achieved the basics, the organization started diversifying its product portfolio to technical laminates in 1982 and Melamite in 1983. These were followed by laminated boards in a wide variety of thicknesses using high pressure presses. These presses are capable of processing raw chipboard from selection to pressing and cleaning and stacking in a record span of under 90 seconds. The laminate business enjoys the market leadership in the manufacturing of decorative laminates.
From then on, the business achieved many key milestones. The business produced its first laminated board using the high pressure presses of the main production line. In 1985, the short-cycle press was commissioned. This state-of-the-art press is capable of processing raw chipboard from selection to pressing and cleaning and stacking in a record span of under 90 seconds.
