Haryana [India], Oct 26 (NewsVoir): CANPACK Group, a global manufacturer operating on the packaging market, is celebrating the opening of its new facility in Nuh, Haryana.
The event was attended by the owner of the CANPACK Group and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of CANPACK Peter F. Giorgi, along with Herman Nicolaas Nusmeier - CEO and President of the Managing Board of CANPACK and other Supervisory and Managerial Board Members.
"Following the increased demand of modern aluminum packaging, CANPACK India has now decided to accelerate its expansion into the Indian market and has established its second beverage cans manufacturing plant in India. This investment has been triggered by a forecast indicating that there is great potential for growth within the Indian market. We are optimistic that India will soon be one of the most important markets for the CANPACK Group. The decision to invest so highly in the country was taken after several studies, focusing on our sustainable development in the long term," said Nico Nusmeier.
"We remain excited at the potential of the CANPACK Group to continue to grow in service of its customers and through the efforts of its dedicated employees," said Peter F. Giorgi.
The Nuh plant will employ approximately 160 workers, bringing CANPACK India's total employment base to over 750 direct employees. The 36 acres of acquired land in Nuh will manufacture 180 ml, 250 ml, and 500 ml cans with a capacity of 950 million cans per year and will employ a world-class manufacturing system. The capacity of this plant is expandable to 2.4 billion cans per year. Even though North India will be the major market space, cans produced at the Nuh facility will also be exported to neighbouring countries.
The Nuh plant received first stage Industrial clearance by the Chief Minister of Haryana through H.E.P.C. (Haryana Enterprise Promotion Council) for setting up its second Indian aluminum can manufacturing facility in Nuh Haryana, NCR region in February 2017. CANPACK is the first company which received this clearance through H.E.P.C.
"This establishment in Nuh district is a result of a CANPACK's goal of transforming the downstream value chain and decreasing the logistics cost for its customers as Northern India contributes to a major share of the overall Indian beverage can market," said Herman Nicolaas Nusmeier.
CANPACK India is committed to further strengthening its positive impact on the community, with a special focus on water conservation, education, sanitation, and rural development.(ANI)
