Indian PP woven bags maker rides on growth of cement sector

With the market for PP/HDPE woven block bottom bags rapidly flourishing in India and growth prospects strong across industries, extrusion machinery maker Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H) says its AD PROTEX bags offer various advantages over conventional stitched bags including better filling efficiencies, no pilferage, easy stacking, tamper resistance, no counterfeiting, no stitch holes and no leakage. These bags offer immense marketing value and greater visibility due to its box type shape. With highest print quality on the coated fabric, the bags also have aesthetics, claims the German firm, adding that sales have taken an upturn in India for this reason.

One such manufacturer in India, Bright Flexi, has grown its reputation as a preferred supplier of PP/HDPE woven products in South India.

Since its inception in 1986, the family-owned company has been among the fastest growing PP woven companies in the region. Following its genesis under the able leadership of industrialist Anil K Bansal and his two sons Ankit Bansal & Abhinav Bansal, the company has grown manifold in the woven domain, addressing the ever increasing demand of PP/HDPE woven sacks and fabrics, leno bags, gusseted bags, BOPP laminated sacks and fabrics. Bansal attributes this growth to technology, innovative company policies and quality consciousness.

Bright has been playing an active role in developing the cement packaging market in South India. In 2018, the company increased its product focus and forayed into the production of AD PROTEX block bottom bags, to address demand for latest innovation in cement packaging.

W&H’s equipment was chosen for Bright’s new facility in Karnataka. Together with W&H CONVERTEX SLC (120 bags per/minute) and CONVERTEX CL 140 (140 bags/minute) hot air sealing machine for woven PP bags, Bright also invested in extrusion coating line ECOTEX 1600L and roll slitting machine SLITTEX 750.

Bright says it has been able to utilise both the W&H CONVERTEX machines at the rated maximum production capacity and taken production efficiency to greater heights. Today, the production house has flexibility to cater to a wider section of the market and a number of different applications.

“Bright is a fast growing company with a dynamic and experienced team. We have been fortunate to be able to add value to Bright’s existing philosophy of delivering top-notch standards in production. We also expect this would open new avenues for our business partnership in a stable market for coming years,” said Anuj Sahni, General Manager – Sales & Marketing, Windmӧller & Hӧlscher India.

CONVERTEX CL 140 is the latest development in long-standing tradition of PP woven equipment manufacturing at W&H that has spearheaded several innovations in the domain. During the last ten years, the output of the bottomer has more than doubled from 60 bags/minute to 140 bags/minute.
