Qutone Ceramics opens second production plant for large panels

November 2018

Qutone Ceramics, based in Ahmedabad, India, has started production on its second System Lamina porcelain slab production line over the summer, with the aim of meeting growing demand and expanding the iMarble range with larger size slabs.  Qutone was the first indigenous manufacturer to introduced slab tiles in India in 2016 with 1,200 by 2,400mm tiles.  In July this year it began producing 1,200 by 3,600mm and 1,200 by 3,000mm iMarble slabs as shown at Cersaie 2018.

This latest investment brings Qutone’s production capacity in the slab segment to 23,000 sq. metres per day. The company’s four factories in Gujarat also produce conventional sizes and have a total capacity of 20 million sq. metres per annum, with 600 by 1,200mm, 800 by 800mm, and 600 by 600mm formats to the fore.

Qutone achieved a 46% growth in sales in 2017 to reach US $65 million. The management’s goal is to achieve sales of $155 million by 2020.
