Tecnocap, a global player of metal packaging, announces its entry into India and Far East and signs the joint venture with the Indian producer of metal and plastic packaging, Oricon Enterprise. According to the agreement, the two partner companies have set up the Newco “Tecnocap Oriental Pvt.” based in Mumbai, controlled at 75% of the share capital by the Tecnocap Group through the acquisition of the Metal Lug business of the Indian partner Oricon, which will hold the remaining 25% of the Company.

“This joint venture marks our full entry into the Indian and Far Eastern markets and represents a key stage in our international growth strategy, achieved through business diversification and expansion towards high growth markets”, comments Michelangelo Morlicchio, shareholder and founder of Tecnocap who continues, “beyond seizing the great opportunities for market growth, this alliance gives us the chance to exploit mutual synergies to operate successfully thanks to the highest quality products, services and logistics.”

Founded in Italy in 1993, Tecnocap is a Global Metal Packaging company operating in the industrial production of metal closures for glass and plastic containers, aluminum aerosol cans and bottles as well as capping machines with over 75% of its sales volume generated abroad between Europe and North America. The Group expects to achieve a big turnover in the current year through eight production sites (Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Ukraine and the United States), three R&D centers and over 900 employees. Moreover, a significant increase in operating margins is expected as an effect of ongoing investments and the launch of several industrial projects for the recovery of production efficiency.

Tecnocap is absolutely focused on Sustainability, Social Responsibility and Digital Transformation and in 2019 the company published its first Integrated Report <IR> for the year 2018. The joint venture in India is part of the Group’s international growth strategy through a consolidated M&A policy. The company management is also evaluating further opportunities in innovative businesses and emerging market areas.

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.
