Two BOPP film production lines for India’s leading confectionary manufacturer
Millions of Indians have grown up with Priyagold’s biscuits, chocolate, snacks and juices over the past years. To keep their fine specialties fresh and appetizing at all times, a wide variety of BOPP and BOPET films are in use. So the logical step was backward integration: producing and converting high-quality films for inhouse requirements and to serve domestic and export film markets. And thus, the Group subsidiary Surya Global Flexifilms ordered two BOPP lines from Brückner Maschinenbau.
Shekhar Agarwal, Surya’s Chairman & Managing Director, says: “As a newcomer in film production we were looking for a partner with great experience, convincing technology and relevant references. All this we have found in Brückner – this already became clear during our first talks.”
Johann Kreilinger, Head of Sales Brückner Maschinenbau, confirms the extremely constructive negotiating climate: “Both our Indian sales team and us from Germany have felt very comfortable in the discussions: our new partners are always well prepared and target-oriented. We are really looking forward to realize the projects.”
Both BOPP lines (8.7 meter wide, one 3-layers, one 5-layers) will be placed at Surya’s new highly modern plant in the greater Nodia area, with excellent traffic connection to the Delhi-Agra/Lucknow expressway and the Delhi-Mumbai express. The first line will start mid 2022, the second one approx. one and half years later.
