Thursday, 29th November 2018: EvoWood, a wood engineering brand launched its maiden experience centre in Mumbai at Laxmi Industrial Estate, Andheri West which is one of the main hubs for interiors in Mumbai. Launched in 2017 by Mr. Atul Marwah, a 4th generation woodpreneur, the brand is all set to expand to various cities to provide versatile solution for manifold interior and structural applications in homes, offices, hotels etc.
The newly opened store in Mumbai offers the brand’s exclusive collection of engineered wood products such as EvoLlae – thin 3.5mm sheets, EvoLumber- ready to use processed lumber and EvoBoards – the finger jointed boards.
On occasion of the launch, Mr. Avijit Marwah, Director, Evowood said, “We are very excited with our launch in Mumbai as the Maximum city hosts real patrons of art and creativity. With our products, we aim to satiate the creative hunger of the architects and interior designers of Mumbai. In today’s day and age, every industry is undergoing major developments and innovations, but unfortunately, woodworking has not witnessed the kind of change that is possible, especially considering the fact that it is one of the longest standing building material in existence. The creativity and versatility that wood provides are enormous but at the same time woodworking requires a lot of skill and knowledge. There aren’t enough players in the industry today with the right knowledge and expertise. As someone who has seen wood being a part of our day to day conversations, I feel it is not only imperative but our responsibility to bring back the charm of woodworking in its contemporary scenario. We hope to make EvoWood synonymous to woodworking.”
In the words of Atul Marwah, Founder and Managing Director, EvoWood, “EvoWood is an enterprise with a mission to get good old natural wood back into our habitat. Wood is the only material to get a natural element in its original form into our urban homes and spaces. EvoWood shall strive to be that medium enabling ease of use and affordability. Entering the Mumbai market is just a start. Our aim is to have EvoWood’s presence pan India and tap different cities across very soon.”
EvoWood aims to simplify woodworking and provide unprecedented solutions and applications to the industry. The name “EvoWood” comes from the word “Evolving” (Evo) and the core product “Wood”, which is the essence of the company meaning “Woodworking Evolved”.
