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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
