Faridabad-based packaging solutions provider PR Packagings manufactures variety of products such as laminated tubes, cartons, rigid boxes and labels under one roof. It caters to customers in industries such as pharma, cosmetics and electronics. The company showcased its products at the recently concluded Innopack Pharma Confex 2018 in Mumbai.
“The main reason for putting up a stall at Innopack Pharma Confex and displaying our packaging solutions was that we wanted the pharma, cosmetics and oral care industry to know that we can be a one stop shop for both tubes as well as cartons. This can help customers reduce costs and get consistent quality by having a single vendor of tubes and cartons,” says Vishesh Gupta, director, PR Packagings.
PR Packagings’ Faridabad plant is built on 9 acres of land and has world class technology in the pre-press, press and post-press sections.

In the pressroom, the company has 22 printing units from the leading offset press manufacturers as well as flexo and letterpress technologies while the post-press section too has equipment from leading brands such as Bobst, Brausse, Yoco, Yii Lee and Heiber & Schroder.

In terms of capacity, the company can manufacture 10 lakh rigid boxes each month and 1.5 crore (15 million) laminated tubes a month. The company has a turnover of close to Rs 150 crore. Talking about the company’s performance in the financial year ending 31 March 2018, Gupta says that the year was good with a minor blip post GST implementation. “The financial year 2017-2018 was a good year despite events like demonetization and GST. We saw growth in excess of 15%. We expect the current and the next year to be very good as well thanks to our focus on innovation and constant introduction of new products,” he says.
