Vinsak installs Lombardi press at Citrus Packaging

Lombardi and Vinsak make bespoke special units for Citrus


Vinsak, a distributor of Lombardi presses, has announced the installation of a second Lombardi Synchroline press at Citrus Packaging in Hyderabad, Telangana.

While the detailed specifications are confidential as Citrus deals in high-quality pharma labels as well as functional labels, Lombardi and Vinsak have created bespoke special units for Citrus for their first as well as second press. 

These enable Citrus to produce these labels efficiently with minimum waste. “The number of repeat orders that Vinsak has from their customers in India far outstrips the competition and this is a key matrix that a converter should ask their machine supplier. The average time in years of repeat purchases as well as the percentage of total customers who have repeated the orders is the highest validation of our product and service,” said Mohan Pailwan, vice president at the Vinsak Group. 

“This is our second purchase of a flexo press and our repeated business is proof enough of our satisfaction with the Lombardi/Vinsak team towards all aspects of the business. Keeping in mind our highly technical requirements of special units and special applications for the markets we operate in, we find the solutions offered by them give us the best ROI,” said Abiram Reddy, director at Citrus.

Citrus Packaging Solutions provides innovative and quality label packaging solutions. Vinsak is a supplier of printing and packaging solutions in India, Africa, and the Middle East.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
