Mexico Project —
The first phase of the Uflex project at Altamira in Mexico started up during March, 2009 with the commissioning of a new BOPET film plant. This line is a state-of-the-art facility (8.7 meters wide – the widest line currently available) supplied by Dornier and has an annual capacity of 36,000 metric tones. It is supplemented by a metallising plant which is equipped with in-line plasma treatment for producing high-barrier films.

According to our information, production trials have been successful and trial quantities have already been shipped out to some important clients. Most of their large customers have elaborate qualification and certification procedures, which have been initiated for the new facility with the shipment of these trial consignments.

The Altamira site is being planned as an important production base for both plain and metallised oriented films as well as converted laminates and pouch systems for supply primarily to North and South America, as reported by us earlier.

Egypt Project
The next overseas project in Egypt is also proceeding as per
schedule. This will start up with the installation of a state-of-the-art multilayer coextruded BOPP film line. Land has already been finalized for this plant and construction is due to start up very soon. The equipment is in the process of being ordered and commercial production is scheduled to commence by the end of March, 2010.

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.
