Faridabad-based packaging solutions provider PR Packagings manufactures variety of products such as laminated tubes, cartons, rigid boxes and labels under one roof. It caters to customers in industries such as pharma, cosmetics and electronics. The company showcased its products at the recently concluded Innopack Pharma Confex 2018 in Mumbai.   

“The main reason for putting up a stall at Innopack Pharma Confex and displaying our packaging solutions was that we wanted the pharma, cosmetics and oral care industry to know that we can be a one stop shop for both tubes as well as cartons. This can help customers reduce costs and get consistent quality by having a single vendor of tubes and cartons,” says Vishesh Gupta, director, PR Packagings.

PR Packagings’ Faridabad plant is built on 9 acres of land and has world class technology in the pre-press, press and post-press sections. It’s pre-press department is equipped with the latest software and technology including Adobe CC, Esko Graphics workflow and ArtiosCAD, Esko Kongsberg sample maker, CtP output devices a Glunz & Jenson plate processor and an Epson proofer.

In addition, PR Packagings has a fully automatic corrugation department, equipped with all modern equipment supporting A, B, C, E, F & G flutes for corrugated transport cartons and litho-laminated micro fluted cartons.

In terms of capacity, the company can manufacture 10 lakh rigid boxes each month and 1.5 crore (15 million) laminated tubes a month. The company has a turnover of close to Rs 150 crore. Talking about the company’s performance in the financial year ending 31 March 2018, Gupta says that the year was good with a minor blip post GST implementation. “The financial year 2017-2018 was a good year despite events like demonetization and GST. We saw growth in excess of 15%. We expect the current and the next year to be very good as well thanks to our focus on innovation and constant introduction of new products,” he says.

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