INDIA - Essentra plc recently opened its state-of-the-art 70,000 square fee manufacturing facility in the Peenya Industrial Area, Bangalore, to showcase its recent expansion in pharmaceutical, health and personal care packaging to customers.
Speaking at the event, PT Sreekumar – Managing Director, Essentra Asia, said the investment to date reinforces the company’s commitment to India as a manufacturing centre for pharmaceutical, health and personal care packaging to serve both the dynamic domestic sector and the rapidly expanding export market.
“Pharmaceutical, health and personal care packaging is a key strategic growth opportunity for Essentra and, having completed the acquisition of the pharmaceutical packaging assets from Kamsri Printing & Packaging Pvt Ltd at the end of January this year, we have not only already transferred the relevant equipment – but also installed a second carton manufacturing line – to ensure that we are optimally positioned to serve our customers in the strategically important market in India,” said Sreekumar.
“As the company looks to further reinforce its presence in the Asia region in general, I am excited about the breadth of capabilities which the global Essentra Group can deliver from our Peenya site - both to our international and domestic customers.”
A Narayanaswamy, General Manager – Essentra India, added, “Our “customer connect” event has been a great opportunity to showcase the range of Essentra’s global pharmaceutical, health and personal care specialist secondary packaging capabilities. These extend beyond folding carton to product literature, labels and foils – alongside the important security and brand authentication features, increasingly required by regulatory authorities and in which Essentra is already renowned as a global leader in other end-markets.”
