Nearly Forty-five years ago, Anil Hardboards Ltd. was founded in a sleepy satellite village called Kanjur on the outskirts of bustling Mumbai. It was a pioneering organisation, the first to manufacture fibreboards in India. Inaugurated in 1958, by the late Prime Minister of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri, this plant, the brainchild of our Founder Mr G.R. Jolly, still has the distinction of being the most modern and fully automated plant in Asia.
In 1985, to identify with our widely popular, product brand names, the company changed its name from Anil Hardboards Ltd. to Jolly Board Ltd.
