A joint venture (JV) between Petainer UK Holdings and Innopac Containers has opened a new plastic packaging solutions manufacturing facility near Mumbai, India.
The Petainer Innopac Packaging JV was formed earlier this year to introduce PET/plastic packaging solutions to brand owners in India.
The new facility uses Petainer's advanced polymer engineering technology to provide sustainable PET/plastics packaging solutions.
At the plant, the company's PetainerCooler 20l bulk water cooler jar is blow-moulded. Preforms for the facility's output are supplied from Petainer's manufacturing sites in Europe.
The facility features an on-site design studio, laboratory services and warehousing.
Petainer Innopac Packaging managing director Atit Bhatia said: "The plant and its strategic location supports our ambitious growth plans for the region."
Petainer UK Holdings Group CEO Nigel Pritchard said: "There is huge interest and demand from brand owners in India, who genuinely recognise that Petainer's advanced polymer engineering brings significant benefits in terms of reduced cost of ownership and improved sustainability."
Petainer Innopac Packaging has recently introduced the petainerKeg in India. The company said it will launch more equipment and products over the coming months.
