Speaking on the occasion Mr. Saurabh Mittal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Greenlam Industries Ltd. said, "At Greenlam Industries, we always strive to produce best-in-class and health safe products for our consumers. In the current pandemic situation, the focus has completely shifted towards staying safe whether indoors or outdoors and it was the need of the hour to manufacture surfaces which are safe to touch. Greenlam has been producing laminates and compacts with antivirus, antibacterial and antifungal properties and with this new achievement, Greenlam will be able to offer laminates & compacts resistant to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
We will continue to work towards our commitment of providing technologically superior quality surfaces that ensure the spaces our consumers build, are safe from viruses, bacteria and other unhealthy contaminants.
This festive season Greenlam has taken another initiative for the visually impaired people among us. We all know that COVID-19 has changed our Normal way of living. While we are slowly adapting to this New Normal of social distancing, contactless services and business to simply covering common touch surfaces with plastic sheets for easy disinfection. For the blind community, however, it's an unimaginable change as touch and feel were the integral part of their communication.
Greenlam pledged to contribute Re. 1 from each of our Greenlam Laminate sales, pan India, in an effort to help them reclaim their vision. We hope our small step can make some difference in their lives."
Greenlam Industries Ltd. has been producing laminates and compacts with Safeguard PLUS™ technology - antivirus, antibacterial, antifungal and indoor air pollution safe and with this new test result, Greenlam will be able to offer surfaces resistant to SARS-CoV-2 as well.
