The Gujarat-based Rajoo Engineers, a provider of plastic processing machinery, has inaugurated its expanded facility in Rajkot – marking a significant milestone in the company’s journey, as it triples its manufacturing capacity to meet growing demands and enhance operational efficiency. 

A spacious structure on an adjacent 28,210 square feet of land acquired last August, the expanded facility will increase manufacturing capacity by 30%. A dedicated space for quality control will help the company to enhance the customer experience. 

The company says it has made a significant investment in the present production plant, which spanned 18,000 square feet and is 100 feet tall with an additional 7,000 square feet for the QCA. This investment underscores the company’s commitment to innovation, stringent quality standards,  growth, and customer satisfaction.  

Speaking on the occasion, R N Doshi, chairman of Rajoo Engineers, said, “The opening of expansion of our Rajkot facility marks another important milestone in our journey. Our focus remains on delivering top-quality products to our national and international clients. This inauguration reflects our steadfast  dedication to innovation, quality, and sustainable growth, marking a significant leap forward for Rajoo Engineers.” 

The extended facility will produce domestically designed and assembled machinery, in line with the ‘Make in India’ initiative – strengthening its commitment to innovation and excellence, and propelling the nation towards self-sufficiency in manufacturing. 

Rajoo Engineer, founded in 1986 and headquartered in  Rajkot, is a prominent global player in plastic extrusion machinery with a dedicated focus on blown film extrusion, sheet extrusion lines, thermoformers, and extrusion coating and lamination lines.

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 growing 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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
