It is an established fact that furniture is indispensable in our lives and form a major part of our homes, offices and other places or facilities we regularly frequent or visit. This goes to show that the furniture manufacturing is indeed an important sector of the country’s economy. Friends Polyplast is engaged in manufacture of stylish, sturdy and sleek plastic moulded furniture that everyone will covet to possess and use.
There are several large and small furniture manufacturing companies spread all over Kerala. We spent precious time and employed resources to conduct a thorough feasibility study to find an ideal location for our manufacturing unit. Elaborate market studies were conducted so that we are well positioned to compete with our competent competitors. Today our brands are well known even in international market.
We can proudly reminisce our march to the present Glory:
2001 - This year, we, then known as GR Plastics began our manufacturing from a small frame structure. Our first product was ‘stool’, the popularity and market acceptance of which prompted us to move to manufacture of other domestic furniture items. Quality and user comfort remained our hall marks. And our march to progress began.
2006 - This was the most important year of our business. The firm’s name was changed from GR Plastics to Friends Polylast, our registered firm name. Backed by our efficient manufacturing unit, soon we became distributors in all districts of Kerala. We added ‘chairs’, ‘tables’, ‘arm chairs’, and ‘armless chairs’ to our items of manufacture. All our products received wide market acceptance.
2011 – Our products were given a brand name Chairman. Till this year, semi virgin plastic items were manufactured. Our Chairman products excelled in design, user comfort, quality and strength than our existing models. The Chairman products were manufactured with 100% virgin Polypropylene. We could easily afford to give our customers the guarantee on the strength, quality and comfort which our competitors could not give.
