Simola underlines global ambition with Sacmi installation

August 2018

Simola is a new and ambitious Indian manufacturer of technically-advanced vitrified tiles that aims to provide an expansive range of vitrified tile décor options for home and commercial interiors.  A private limited company based in the western-Indian ceramic hub of Morbi, Simola’s modern manufacturing unit is technically supported by Sacmi, a world-wide leader of manufacturing machines and complete plants for the ceramics industry.

Six months since it was started up at the end of 2017, the new porcelain slab factory owned by Indian ceramic company Simola Vitrified Tiles is now fully operational.  Modena-based company CMF Technology actively participated in the design and construction of the modern plant built around System’s Lamgea press technology by supplying all the automation and pre- and post-firing material storage systems.

Thanks to the use of multiple SBOX and TFLAT storage units, the factory performs efficiency handling of 1,200 by 2,400mm size ceramic slabs and their submultiples while maintaining high levels of plant flexibility and output.

Simola, led by founder Rajesh Shirvi, is rapidly establishing itself in new market segments in India and abroad thanks to its new high-value products.
