PrimePackindia, based in Indore, has been importing machinery and packaging materials for small industries and SMEs from China for more than a decade. It provides the necessary packaging machinery for pesticides, food and stationery in India. These include forming, filling and sealing, gluing and labeling machines.
At the recently concluded PackPlus show, the company showcased labeling machines, box strapping, smart inkjet printers, granule fillers, form fill and seal machines, conveyors and tunnels of retraction. After importing the machines from China, he configures them according to the needs of Indian customers. “We import and order the machines from China to develop the products according to Indian requirements so that the machines can be used effectively and efficiently,” said Mehul Thakkar, Director of PrimePackindia.
He added: “Compared to the Indian market, China has enough volume to supply the factories of the world. There is automation and quality, and yet Indians are lagging behind. The Indians used to bring inferior machines and had problems. We configure the equipment to requirements that may not exactly match the US requirements, but since India has its own standards, we customize the machine so that it can easily be accepted in the market.
Regarding the expansion of the company’s business, Thakkar said, “We plan first and slowly to open new offices in major cities of India. Additionally, we have purchased 27,000 square feet of property in our city which we aim to use to build manufacturing facilities to assemble some of the products here soon. Additionally, we are here at the PackPlus show to improve our sales and build relationships and connections with new customers.
