Our Corporate Bureau
11 October 2007
To be installed at dealer locations, the software would allow customers a virtual walkthrough over the building plan, while letting them mix and match Nippon''s colour range to get a sneak preview and a feel for how a coloured wall would look once painted.
to company sources, the introduction of this software is a pioneering effort in
India, and is expected to be a hit with customers, as it would let people can
walk into stores with a CD of the floor plans and figure out exactly how the place
would look once finished.
Nippon Paints is also in the process of investing Rs160 crore in a manufacturing each at Chennai and in Gujarat. Presently, the company gets its paint from plants in neighbouring countries. It has a large presence in South India, with about 100 stores, which it plans to double in about a year.
