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. 

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
