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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
