Started in the year 1978, Anar Rub Tech has been one of the pioneers in the rubber roller segment in the country. The company manufactures all kinds of rubber products for paper, packaging and converting equipment, as well as for other industries.

Rollers are a category of business that enjoys universal requirement and heavy demand. While many other industry segments have been hit post several governmental reforms, the rubber roller industry has remained unaffected—providing inputs to various industry segments. In India, Gujarat is the epicenter of the roller market and Anar Rub Tech is clearly a name to reckon with in its space.

In-house R&D facility

Anar Rub Tech has its in-house R&D facility which closely analyzes market requirements and offers solutions to its clients. Lalit Kumar, marketing manager at Anar said, “We usually come across conditions where certain types of rollers are quite suitable to the application. We study the client’s requirements in detail and develop a compound which is best suited for the application.” We have a dedicated team of rubber engineers who also help with the product development at all stages.

Certified by Bureau Veritas, Anar Rub Tech ensures quality production through timely assessment of its production line and has garnered recognition from its clients and various certification bodies.

On the impact of GST on Anar Rub Tech, Kumar explained, “The introduction and implementation of Good and Services Tax has created fruitful competition and brought small players in the market equally under the same tax range. Earlier, small players hesitated to invest in the excise units as the taxes levied were huge. The GST has given both the big and small players a common platform.” The company provides all types of rollers like teflon, silicon, synthetic and polyurethane based. If the application is to do with heat, then silicon rubber is used. Shedding light on the application of rollers in other segments, Kumar said, “We have applications across all segments like textile, where the rollers are used for de-wrinkling the fabric to achieve uniform print. Another major application is in conveyors, where the roller sets the conveyor in motion.”

Rinku Patel, director at Anar Rub Tech, shared, “We have our applications across all the lines. Exhibitions help us to generate potential clients for a particular industry. At PackPlus 2017, we are looking at the converting industry. Here the exhibition has manufacturers of rotogravure printing machines and flexographic machines; therefore, they are our potential clients.”

Another product from Anar Rub Tech – the Ink Circulating System – has found a loyal list of clients. The Industrial Ink Circulation Pumps are custom made according to the clients’ demands. The advantage of these products is that their body is made up of stainless steel, which makes them hard and strong in nature. They are not affected by corrosion and are flame proof. These products are available at affordable prices in the market.


The company supplies products to its clientele across the world in Central and South America, South, West, North and East Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Indian Subcontinent, Caribbean, East Asia, Middle East and South East Asia. “The company, being an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), supplies various products to its clients all over the world. Our engineers provide full support to our clients,” concluded Kumar.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
