Gujarat-based Gayatri Rub Tech produces rubber and chrome rollers for photogravure printing, solvent and solvent-less lamination machines. Although the Indian market has significant potential for the company, Gayatri Rub Tech plans to gradually expand its line across the world. At present, Gayatri acquires 30% of its business revenue from the Gulf, African, Austrian and Portugal regions. By participating at the upcoming K-Show, Gayatri Rub Tech looks to further extend its trade in the global marketplace.

Jitendra Patel, chief executive officer, Gayatri Rub Tech says, “Founded in 1990, Gayatri Rub Tech has about 20 years of experience in manufacturing of rubber rolls for local machinery manufacturers. Our main focus has always been on flexible packaging and plastic industries.” Gayatri Rub Tech recently invested in a second plant, equipped with four European machines and spread across 35,000 sq. ft. in Gujarat industrial region, India. The total productivity from both the units is around 750 rolls a month.”

Gayatri Rub Tech will be participating in K-2016 for the third time. Their participation in the previous edition of the expo helped Gayatri Rub Tech to grow their business revenue by 30%. “Earlier, visitors were a bit reluctant to visit Indian exhibitors, but with increased quality of products, there is a growing interest among the visitors. Through K-2016, we wish to encourage quality Indian-made products and gradually it is being accepted across developed countries. To double our revenue from exports, we are in discussions to collaborate with a European company to increase our presence in UK, Europe and the US,” Patel concludes.

Gayatri Rub Tech will showcase solvent-less rubber roll, roto gravure rubber roll, flexo rubber roll and sleeve at Stand 3G–07, Hall 3.

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 Asia is 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.
