Tekni-Plex’s new Indian plant

Closure liner manufacturing


Tekni-Plex has opened a new closure liner manufacturing plant in India primarily to serve growing demand for high-quality solutions for regulated pharmaceuticals. The plant is located in Kundli, near Delhi, and will support one of the largest generic drug producing
regions in the world with shorter lead times. It will operate as part of the company’s Tri-Seal liner manufacturing business unit. The liners will be used as a packaging component for a broad range of solid oral dose capsules and tablets.

“With so many multinational and regional pharmaceutical companies located in India, we wanted to improve their speed-to-market by locating a manufacturing plant in close proximity to pharma production. Based on our discussions with customers, we believe that this is the first plant in India laminating liners for regulated applications. This will enable those companies to have a faster supply of liners that have been manufactured to the same regulatory standards required by the US Food and Drug Administration,” said David Andrulon is, senior vice president and general manager, Tekni-Plex.

The plant will include laminating, slitting and punching lines. It also has a capacity to accommodate future expansion requirements as business needs dictate. Tri-Seal manufactures a broad range of liners in a variety of materials ranging from one- and two piece induction heat seals, monolayers, co-extrusions and various laminations.

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.
