Hoffmann Neopac AG, a leading supplier of tube packaging to the worldwide pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries based in Switzerland, has taken a majority stake in 3D Technopack, based in Mumbai, India. This investment strengthens the company’s international market presence and expands its expertise in tube manufacturing.

3D Technopack has been in the market since 2003 and is the third-largest tube manufacturer in India. The company is regarded as a quality and innovation leader in its own country, is ISO 9001 and BRC certified, has 220 employees and produces 120 million tubes per year. 3D Technopack is a supplier of tubes to major brands in India as well as to mid-sized companies in Europe. Funding provided by Neopac will be used to expand capacity in 3D’s core extruded tube business as well as the launch of a new tube generation pioneered by 3D Technopack, which allows unlimited decoration.

Hoffmann Neopac is mainly active in Europe and North America. With a majority stake in 3D Technopack, the company is ensuring its foothold in the fast-growing Asian tube market. By expanding its geographic presence, Hoffmann Neopac is equally strengthening its position as a partner for globally active cosmetics and pharmaceutical corporations.

Hoffmann Neopac is a privately owned company, headquartered in Thun, Switzerland. The company produces high-quality metal and plastic packaging in currently four locations – Hoffmann Tins in Thun and through CMP in Holland; Polyfoil and plastic NEOPAC tubes in Switzerland and Hungary. Its customers include internationally active pharmaceutical, cosmetics and consumer goods manufacturers in the European and North American markets. The company has 950 employees in total and a tube capacity of 950 million tubes.

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.
