Indian flexible packaging company, UFlex, has announced plans to double the production capacity of its aseptic liquid packaging plant in Sanand, Gujarat.
The project, which is expected to be completed within around ten months, will increase the facility’s capacity from 3.5 billion to 7 billion packs per year.
According to UFlex, the move is a response to increasing demand for the company’s aseptic packaging laminates.
UFlex’s liquid packaging brand, Asepto, offers solutions for a range of beverage products, including juices, milk and non-aerated alcoholic beverages.
Ashwani Kumar Sharma, president and CEO, aseptic liquid packaging business, UFlex, said: “Asepto expansion is part of the growing need for aseptic packaging, and I am excited that our team and the 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.
“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 the aseptic packaging space.”
Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director of UFlex, added: “This expansion of production capacities is our natural progression, addressing our rapid growth in the aseptic liquid packaging space and stepping strong footsteps into the global arena.”
