SV Kabra, managing director at Kabra Extrusiontechnik

Mumbai-based Kabra Extrusiontechnik (KET) is an Indian manufacturer and part of the renowned Kolsite Group. With over 5 decades’ experience, more than 11,000 installations and presence in more than 84 countries, KET enjoys a leadership position in the extrusion market. Last year, the company made a series of achievements such as a strategic partnership with European companies and was awarded the prestigious National Award under the Industry Category of ‘Innovation of Polymer Processing Machinery & Equipment’ for its product— High Speed Telecom Micro-duct Extrusion Line.

‘Develop the product as per the evolving needs’ is chief mantra for SV Kabra, managing director at Kabra Extrusiontechnik. Speaking to us at the Plastvision India event, Kabra said, “We are a 50-year-old company. We initiated the business by manufacturing extrusion machines for the pipe. In pipe sector, we are doing very well and we also hold the largest shares in the segment. For packaging, we came up with a 7-layer blown film machinery. Recently, we have also entered into a partnership with US-based Gloucester Engineering.”

The company strives to design the systems accurately to produce the barrier film at rates and quality levels that not only meet or exceed the market’s requirements but also result in enhanced operational efficiency and higher flexibility for plastic manufacturers. Over a period, the demand for new engineered polymers and productivity has increased to up to 700–800 kg/hr.

Collaboration with Penta Systems India aided the company in the manufacturing and trading of auto feeding systems for the plastics and food processing industries. According to Kabra, every plastic processing machine manufacturer has a niche market to cater to and he has been rather optimistic about the growth of flexible films.

At the Plastivision stand, Kabra Extrusiontechnik showcased a 5225 model of PVC pipe extrusion machinery and its die mold. Kabra is a premier manufacturer and exporter of extrusion plants, which offers optimal solutions to plastics processors across the globe. The company has two state-of-the art manufacturing facilities in Daman, India and has a combined area of 83,820 sq. m. It is listed on the stock exchange (BSE & NSE) authorities of India.

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.
