Jaipur-based Miracle Prints, part of Miracle Group, will commission its flexible packaging unit on 19 June. Lokesh Agrawal, director of the Miracle Group revealed this to Packaging South Asia during the 15th Printpack India.
“By entering the flexible packaging business, we can now offer all sorts of packaging solutions to our clients. We will be a one-stop-shop for all their packaging needs,” Agarwal said.
Miracle Prints is a leading packaging solutions provider manufacturing cartons, labels, plastic cans, and corrugated boxes. To improve its logistics and be closer to its customer’s packing plants, it has spread its seven corrugation units to multiple states including Bihar, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Punjab.
The flexible packaging unit will be located in Jaipur and the first stage will start with a production capacity of 500 tons per month. “The infrastructure that we have built is such that we can have five flexible packaging lines. So we are future-ready. We will begin with a production capacity of 500 tons per month in the first stage and scale up as and when required. We aim to have five lines by 2025. Once all five lines are running we will have a capacity of 3,000 tons per month,” Agarwal added.
In the first phase, Miracle Prints will start operations with a gravure press from Mumbai-based Kohli Industries and a Windsor blown-film line. It also has a pouch-making machine from Galaxy Packtech.
“There is huge potential for the growth of the flexible packaging industry in Rajasthan. At present, a large number of brand owners are sourcing flexible packaging material from outside the state. We hope to fill that gap,” Agarwal said.
Miracle Prints books Bobst Novacut 106 E at 15th Printpack
At the recently held 15th Printpack, Miracle Prints announced a deal to buy a Bobst Novacut 106 E die cutter. This will be Miracle’s second Bobst Novacut while the first Novacut was purchased about four years ago.
“We have been operating a Novacut for almost four years. Every month we have been die-cutting about 25 to 27 lakh sheets on the Bobst machine. We also bought a Chinese machine on which we can cut only 15 to 16 lakh sheets every month. As you can see, the productivity of the Bobst machine is far higher. Bobst’s machines also have a lower breakdown time and their after-sales service is fantastic. Altogether, the higher productivity means we can a save lot of floor space which is important since land comes at a premium in places like Jaipur,” Agarwal said.
