Infinity Solutions, a two-year-old start-up based in Pune, has chalked out an ambitious plan of providing end-to-end solutions to the growing needs of the Indian corrugated industry. The company is promoted by Sarfaraz Pathan and Tufan Kumar Saha, who were earlier working for Bobst and BHS respectively.

The company represents Chinese, Korean and Taiwanese brands in India. Infinity supplies corrugators manufactured by Guangdong Wanlian Packaging Machinery (China), flexo printing presses by Shanghai Dinglong Machinery (China), corrugating rolls manufactured by Haili (China), conveyers manufactured by Qingdao Guangchuan Automation (China), automatic waste baler machine by XT (China), automatic glue kitchen made by Chuen Huah Chemical Co. (Taiwan), and auto folder gluers manufactured by Cheong Ryong (Korea).

In the two years of its existence, Infinity has built up as sizable customer base and has supplied a range of equipment to a number of Indian companies such as Astron Packaging (Ahmedabad), Supack Industries, Jash Packaging (Baroda), Girnar Corrugators (Naidupeta), Vital Papers (Sricity), Vijay Anand Packaging (Hyderabad), Miracle Coroplast (Gandhidham), Miracle Coroplast (Jaipur), Adani Wilmar (Kandla), Qualpack (Baroda), Star Box (Chennai), Panoply Packaging (Chennai), Khetan Packfine (Khopoli), Packsafe (Jabalpur), MNM Triplewall (Bengaluru) and Him Packwell (Baddi).

“We work very closely with our customers and give them our inputs in every dimension of their business. We help them to identify their current and future business evolution opportunities. We also do financial viability study of the project to make our customers understand the economics of the project. Based on this study, we make informed recommendations in different areas like size of the land, layout, etc.,” says Pathan.

A successful IndiaCorr Expo

The company participated at the recently concluded IndiaCorr Expo, which was held in October, and promoted various solutions that it provides.

“IndiaCorr Expo is the biggest show for the corrugated industry in India. It provides you a common platform for sharing knowledge, exhibiting your products to a large base of potential buyers and networking with different business associates,” says Saha.

Talking about plans for the coming future, both Pathan and Saha say that there are many things in the pipeline, but the primary focus would be on increasing the company’s service support team to be able to extend quicker and value-added service to customers. 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
