Shri Prakash W Gupta, managing director, W&H India, said, “We are proud to be a part of this important project for HAP. The commissioning of these machines for HAP’s greenfield plant is a remarkable milestone for us here in India, and is also helping us to consolidate our leadership position in this sector.”
The two machines, a Varex II, a 2,600mm wide, three-layer blown film line and a Miraflex AM8 CI flexo Printing Press, and their components are manufactured at Lengerich Plant of W&H in Germany. The overall project cost is estimated to be worth approximately Rs 65 crore.
According to W&H, the customised and tailor-made machines for HAP are energy-efficient. The Miraflex is equipped with an Easy Col technology, which allows HAP to automate the colour matching process.
The orders were booked in the second quarter of 2016, and HAP proposes to commence commercial production in October 2017. The company manufactures a diverse range of dairy and ice cream products under several brand names, including Hatsun, Arokya, Arun and IBACO.
