For 50 years, Nowapara Jute Mills Limited (NJML) has been providing the global market with best-in-class Jute products from Bangladesh. Our production facility is located along the bank of the river Bhairab, adjacent to the southern railway tracks, on 50 acres of land in Nowapara, Jessore, Bangladesh. Our three main factory buildings provide 30,000 sqm of covered workspace and we use another 30,000 sqm of building space for offices, workshops, employee housing, schools, hospitals and clubs. We own warehouses for more than 10,000 metric tons of raw materials as well as 1.50 MVA power generating plant.
We are keen to explore and diversify Jute products: non-woven and felts (needle punch machines); composite Jute bags with other natural fibers and alternatives; Jute in construction and packaging materials as eco-friendly alternatives to replace various non bio-degradable materials; Jute in furniture upholstery, shoes and domestic household products; and novel use of rapier looms for blended yarn/fabric for the retail markets.
We are committed to solar energy and all viable, eco-friendly, Jute-related products for sustainable future.
We provide various facilities for our employees, including accommodation/housing, schools for the children of the employees, education funds for poor families, education scholarships for meritorious students, medical care, eye care and dental care.
We contribute to employee welfare and profit sharing.
