Lohia Starlinger Ltd. (LSL), a leading manufacturer of equipment for producing plastic woven fabrics and woven sacks, has announced a technical collaboration with Techne Technipack Engineering Italia Spa (Techne), a leading international manufacturer of extrusion blow-moulding machines. The announcement was made during Plastindia 2009 held in New Delhi between the 4th and 9th of February 2009.

LSL has signed an exclusive technical license agreement with Techne for the manufacture, assembly, testing, delivery and servicing of sophisticated multi-cavity, multi-layer extrusion blow moulding machines using the latter’s know-how. Techne is a Euro 31 million Italian company based in Bologna and has been in business for 23 years. It has over 900 installations in 60 countries and exports 89 per cent of it’s output. LSL is India’s leading supplier of equipment for manufacturing plastic woven fabrics and woven sacks with a market share of over 60 per cent; they also have installations in 60 countries worldwide.

Under the terms of the agreement, LSL will manufacture the System 4000 S/T 470 series of machines in single and double shuttle versions. The machines can turn out monolayer HDPE/PP or multi-layer (LDPE-HDPE-PP with clarifying agent) blow-moulded containers in capacities ranging from 125 ml to 5,000 ml. This series represents Techne’s highest selling range of EBM machines. The containers will primarily be targeted at the aseptic milk segment. The machines will be branded as Lohia Techne. Lohia Starlinger were displaying a running model of the 4000 S 470 turning out HDPE bottles for flavoured milk at their stand at Plastindia 2009.

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.
