About Us


SPB-PC started as a Projects and Consultancy Division of Seshasayee Paper and Boards Limited (SPB), to plan and execute the mill’s expansion and development schemes in SPB.

This Division also planned and executed Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Ltd (TNPL), a 100,000 tpa newsprint cum fine paper mill based on bagasse from concept to commissioning with World Bank financing including equity through IDBI, the lead Indian Financial Institution.

TNPL  was commissioned in a record time of 36 months from finance tie up. A high performance, low-cost producer, TNPL’s commercial success has been evidenced by its continuous growth. TNPL is today’s world’s largest and most successful bagasse based integrated paper mill
