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.

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.
