UFlex Limited, an Indian flexible packaging and polymer science company, is doubling the production capacity of its aseptic liquid packaging plant.
The plant, based in Sanand, Gujarat, will see its capacity rise from 3.5 billion to 7 billion packs per annum. Works are expected to complete within the next ten months.
The expansion follows increasing demand for the company’s aseptic packaging laminates, having secured a number of new contracts.
Driven by a strong and healthy order book and consistent market growth, this initiative doubles the production capacity and will allow creating company’s expanding operations team by adding more workforce, which will strengthen the company’s expansion plan.
“Asepto expansion is part of the growing need for aseptic packaging and I am excited that our team and state-of-the-art facilities we have are well-positioned to respond to the increasing demand for our services and innovative technology in aseptic packaging,” said Ashwani Kumar Sharma, President & CEO, Aseptic Liquid Packaging Business, UFlex.
“Despite the pandemic, we have continued to deliver services without a pause and carried on with innovative thoughts to deliver expected results from our customers.”
“We have been working on taking Asepto globally, and our expansion takes a leap to enlarge the brand’s horizons to different continents.
“We remain the most innovative packaging company when it comes to aesthetic rejuvenation in aseptic packaging space. The expansion steps in our operations reflect ASEPTO’s strong position in the marketplace and positive outlook for the future.”
The first phase of expansion will focus on adding new machines to the existing.
Once the commissioning of the project is complete, the company would take steps for global expansion.
