His predecessor, Mr. RavichandraTavag, retired on 31 December 2017, after representing the company for more than 10 years.

Dieffenbacher sold the first ever CPS continuous press in India to Greenply Industries Ltd. in Rudrapur (Uttarakhand) in 2008. This press line, with a rated capacity of 600 cubic metres per day, doubled the MDF production in India at that point of time.

This order was followed by Associate Décor’s (formerly Star Panel) order for the first CPS continuous press for particle board in Malur, Karnataka, with a capacity of 1,100 cubic metres per day in 2009, and an order by Rushil Decor in 2010 for a 300 cubic-metres-per-day MDF line in Chikmagalur, Karnataka.

In 2015, Greenply placed a repeat order with its second investment in a 1,300 cubic-metres-per-day MDF plant in Srikalahasti, Andhra Pradesh.
