Packaging manufacturer Südpack (Ochsenhausen, Germany; www.suedpack.com) has officially opened a new production plant near Ahmedabad, India. The complex, which covers 47,000 m² and Südpack operates as part of a joint venture founded in mid-2020 with Indian packaging manufacturer Kamakshi Flexiprints (Ahmedabad; www.kamakshiflexiprints.com – see Plasteurope.com of 15.07.2020), is divided into the areas for extrusion, printing, lamination, and pouch production. Kamakshi Flexiprints, a manufacturer of printed packaging materials supplies the food and non-food industries with flexible packaging solutions.

The new site is a building block of Südpack’s internationalisation strategy and is intended to help serve the rapidly growing market on the Indian subcontinent, the German company said. According to Südpack managing director Tharcisse Carl, “Our well-considered site concept is designed so we can gradually expand its capacities in order to meet the ever-increasing demand for multilayer films that are both innovative and sustainable for flexible packaging on the Indian subcontinent.”

The Indian government passed its Plastic Waste Management Rules in 2016, according to which, single-use plastic articles such as simple plastic carrier bags are no longer to be produced by the end of 2022. Another step is reportedly the gradual abolition of multilayer composites, which are not recyclable and are thus mostly incinerated.
