Back that time in Germany, the raw materials like the coconut residues came from Sri Lanka. Ramesh Pai rightly dreamt of utilizing this technology in India as it is the top producers of coconut.

As late as in 2004, the Kurl-On mattresses started making several variations and different types of cushion and mattresses. In the present day, Kurl-On has come up with not only different types of mattresses but other furniture materials too.
