What sets MPL’s initiative apart is its strategic approach to production. The entire output from the plant will be dedicated to captive consumption, embodying a backward integration strategy aimed at reducing input costs and ensuring supply chain resilience. This decision not only secures MPL’s position in the market but also underscores its commitment to self-sufficiency and operational efficiency while executing its CAPEX investments in a timeline driven manner.

Moreover, MPL’s dedication to research and development (R&D) is evident in its sustainable product portfolio development. Beyond merely expanding its product offerings, the company is keen on engineering environmentally friendly solutions. By leveraging innovative techniques and technologies, MPL aims to cater to diverse polyurethane segments, including rigid PUR/PIR foam, footwear, and CASE products.

Collaboration lies at the heart of MPL’s success story. As part of AM International, MPL has harnessed the power of collective expertise to drive sustainable growth.

It is spearheading R&D initiatives, resulting in environmental friendly polyester polyol products. This collaborative approach not only fosters knowledge exchange but also accelerates progress towards a greener future.

In an era marked by increasing environmental consciousness and compliance regulations, MPL’s foray into polyester polyol production aligns perfectly with industry trends. By prioritising sustainability and innovation, MPL is not only future-proofing its operations but also contributing to a more sustainable world.
