About Us

Projar was founded in 1983 by Alejandro Faus in Valencia, Spain. The company started producing substrates for fruit and vegetable growers. It was not until the 1990s that the company saw an increasing demand of coir products, which had shown to be an excellent medium for soilless growing or raw material for the composition of growing media.

 In the first decade of the 21st century, Projar started to export coir fiber products worldwide in order to satisfy the growing demand from farmers across the globe. 

This was why the company decided to strengthen its presence in Sri Lanka by setting up its own factory in 2008. Moreover, the company established strategic alliances with other local coir fiber producers in India. In our facilities in Sri Lanka we produce coir-based blends for agriculture and a whole range of coir products including Grow Bags, Easyplanters, blocks and other coir based products.

Quality Guarantee

As a manufacturer, we are able to keep a tight rein on quality control throughout all stages of production—from the selection of raw materials at the source and the creation of bespoke mixes to processing, packaging and palletizing.

We are committed to satisfy applicable requirements, including statutory and regulatory requirements and mutually agreed customer requirements related to product quality and continually improve the quality management system in line with ISO 9001.

Made to Order

Personalization is one of our key differentiating factors, with a specialized team that designs mixes, formats and packaging to suit the needs of our customers. For this reason, we carry out joint development initiatives with our customers and constantly adapt to market demands.

Logistics

Our international logistics team provides our customers with ongoing support, continuous tracking and information on the status of our shipments, from the source to their farms. There, they receive technical advice from our expert agronomists on the use of coir fiber, both for producers just getting started with this growing technology and producers with years of experience under their belts, exchanging information on the best practices in handling coir fiber.
