At the recently concluded IndiaCorr Expo 2017, Senior Paper Packaging Machinery had an impressive display of products. The company is a first-of-its-kind of brand in India which manufactures machines for corrugators across the world. “Unlike others, who are exhibiting imported machines from China, we are probably the only or one of the few who are presenting an Indian product here,” said a company’s spokesperson.

Senior Paper Packaging Machinery is the only Indian corrugated machine manufacturing company to have presence in around 35 countries around the world. “We manufacture the best quality machines. We firmly believe in giving good customer support. If a customer approaches us with a complaint, we try to provide a solution within a fortnight. The solution is usually provided over a phone call but in some cases when it’s necessary, we send our team to resolve the problem,” the spokesperson said.

The company displayed flat diecutting and finger-less corrugation machines at the event. The flat diecutter is a multi-purpose machine that lets manufacturers cut the boxes in customized shapes. The machine also allows precision cutting of leather, PVC, fiber and thin metal. The finger-less corrugation machine helps in making boxes of desired sizes.

With a market presence spanning around two decades, the company began exports in the year 2005. Considering the hazardous impact plastic bags are having on the environment and the government’s continued measures to curb the usage of plastic bags, Senior Paper Packaging Machinery has come up with a new paper bag making machine. The Indian market has undergone massive changes in the past 20 years but Senior Paper Packaging Machinery has remained largely unaffected due to persistent demand for equipment from the foreign players. “Somewhere, the quality of machines that we manufacture has appealed our customers due to which we have received repeat orders,” he said.

When asked if the company stands under the threat of getting wiped out in the event of foreign players entering the Indian market, the spokesperson ruled out the possibility altogether. “Though I understand that it will bring in some sense of competition, I don’t think it would affect us in any way. We will still survive because we manufacture good quality products. We have a worldwide presence in 35 countries where our customers could have bought equipment from the local manufacturers at affordable rates but they still chose us. That, I think, pretty much sums up the entire story of our customer base. Nevertheless, I think that the government should do something to avoid excessive participation of foreign countries.”

The company has a healthy customer base in the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. They received a laudable response at IndiaCorr Expo 2017. One of the machines on display at the show was sold to a buyer from Mumbai on the second day, with many more orders sealed on the last day. Manufacturing good quality products and providing timely customer service are the two pillars on which Senior Paper Packaging Machinery thrives.

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.
