Boosting Flexible Packaging Operations in Egypt and India
HUHTAMAKI: Boosting flexible packaging operations in Egypt and India / Investments support future growth and regional coverage
In order to better serve customers in northeast India, Huhtamaki will set up manufacturing plants for flexible packaging in the state of Assam and for labels in the state of Sikkim. Both units are scheduled to start production during the first half of 2017. In addition, a label manufacturing plant in greater Mumbai will be relocated to a new facility by the end of 2017 to provide room for expansion. The total cost of these projects will be around EUR 9m.
Moisio said the Indian investments will further improve its geographic coverage of the country as well as its ability to service customers in the food and pharmaceutical industries. When completed, the additions will take Huhtamakis total number of manufacturing plants in India to 17.
