Jindal Films Europe is proud to announce a further expansion in its Brindisi plant that will create a minimum of 20 highly qualified jobs and add a capacity of a further 50,000 MT on top of the current production volume of the site.

This additionally produced volume will be mainly dedicated to Jindal’s new innovative BOPE
speciality film grades, including matt, sealable, coated, metallized and Alox films. The new film developments will be focusing on fully sustainable and recyclable packaging
solutions and strongly support the circular economy. In addition to that, this high-efficiency
the program will also include the use of solar power and an expansion of the current trigeneration energy systems.

This will also clearly further improve the C02 footprint of our Brindisi Operations.
On top of that, all these initiatives will utmost benefit from the close cooperation with
Apulia Region Universities and the Italian Research Center based in Brindisi.

Project ‘Horizon’ – Biggest plant in Europe for BOPE- and BOPP film manufacturing

This investment project is designed to further strengthen Jindal Films Europe’s leading role in the BOPE- and BOPP film markets. With a new total capacity of 130,000 MT, Brindisi will become the biggest plant in Europe for BOPE- and BOPP film manufacturing.
This project is named “Horizon” because Jindal Films Europe is preparing itself for the future looking ahead to what is beyond “Horizon”.

The Jindal Films Europe Team is looking forward to meeting all big challenges and making use of new innovative business opportunities ahead. We at Jindal are fully committed to supporting all our customers in meeting their sustainability and recyclability objectives for packaging materials.

This investment initiative is the result of close cooperation with Regione Puglia on
the basis of the Contratto di Programma, which we appreciate very much.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
