  The build up of the plant with an approximately cover area of about 50000 square feet for housing its main plant and another building of approximately 50000 square feet for the storage of the pack particleboard and laminated melamine particleboard. Adjacent to the main plant and the storage area, a second building was built to house the single daylight short cycle laminating plant which requires a cover area of about 20000 square feet. Two other subsidiaries building was also build for the in-feed of materials called the flaker production plant and the screening plant for the refining of the dried material ready to be transported to the main plant by chain flight conveyors ready for production into particleboard. Apart from the main factory building, storage building and the flaker production plant and screening plant, the compulsory also has a generator plant capable of producing 4 Megawatt of electrical power for the plant electrical consumption. Initially, this said plant has been used but now the plant reserved as stand-by in case electricity supply form SESB failed.
