Visaka Industries is setting up a 100,000-tonne capacity asbestos cement sheet plant at Sambalpur in Orissa at an estimated cost of Rs40 crore to meet the rural demand, according to the company’s vice-chairman G Vivekanand. Further, the company is also ramping up the capacity of its Pune plant from 65,000 tonne to 100,000 tonne at a cost of about Rs15 crore. This is expected to be ready in a year.
