Mumbai-headquartered flexible packaging solutions provider BLA Packaging has installed the Flexibiz ERP solution at its plant near Ahmedabad. The software was supplied by Noida-based Kiran Consultants. The Flexibiz ERP was ordered in October last year and became fully operational in January 2019.

“The growth of a business totally depends on how you analyze the productions and wastages. We heard of Flexibiz from a colleague and called the company to show their product. This was at a very early stage and it took us a while to finalize the package,” says Anuj Agarwal, director, BLA Packaging.

According to Agarwal, the Flexibiz ERP package is a very dynamic software which can generate reports the way you want to view them. “It is a great platform that takes all parameters into consideration,” he adds.

Flexibiz is an end-to-end enterprise solution for manufacturing plants engaged in flexible packaging, labels and cartons. It addresses all the pain points of a printing and packaging manufacturing unit. Software uses latest NET technology to offer ease of operation and data access on the go through mobile application. The same shop floor workforce can be easily trained to work on a computer. The Flexibiz ERP takes care of workflow management, monitors production status, tracks wastages, does documentation and material management, among many other things.

“A good enterprise solution is a necessity today to manage the production volumes and company growth while simultaneously having a sense of control through the system with checks in place. We are happy to be a part of BLA Packaging. They have a good facility and we wish that they see multi-fold growth going forward. BLA Packaging has opted for the complete version of Flexibiz from order booking to production to dispatch, post-sales CAPA, accounts & finance, and plant maintenance,” says Gaurav Bansal of Kiran Consultants.

Ventured into flexible packaging in 2016

BLA Packaging ventured into flexible packaging in 2016. Its manufacturing unit, spread over 75,000 square foot, is located about 40 km from Ahmedabad and houses some of the most modern machinery. The plant is also BRC compliant.

The Ahmedabad plant has a 3-layer blown film line from Windsor, a rotogravure printing press from Bobst, a solvent-less laminator from Nordmeccanica and a solvent-based laminator from Expert, slitter-rewinder from SP Ultraflex, defect detection system from AVT and web inspection rewinder machine from SP Ultraflex.

BLA Packaging supplies flexible packaging solutions to the food industry (for packaging items such as atta, tea, spices, salt and powdered drinks, among others). The company also services customers in the FMCG and pharmaceutical industry.

“We plan to slowly start exporting to customers in the US, Canada and Dubai. These are the markets we are looking forward to,” says Agarwal.

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.
