Albea’s manufactures laminate tubes for oral care, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical at its Baddi-based unit in India. It also produces injection moulded components for tubing and cosmetic packaging, and has assembly capacities for CRP. The site is certified with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, BS OHSAS 18001 and BRC (Grade B).

John Hammond, sales director, Nilpeter, said, “We are delighted to continue the close working relationship we have developed with Albea over the years. It is truly mutually beneficial – working together, learning from each other – gaining and improving in laminate tubes, and growing together through the process. And the potential for more is evident. We cherish the collaboration and look forward to many years of mutual success.”

The new FA comes with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. “Albéa’s new FA presses are prepared for the addition of digital printing stations, which will allow them to print variable data in the future. Furthermore, Nilpeter has developed a zero waste/defects solution to ensure Albéa meets market quality requirements,” added Hammond.

Albea carried out a comprehensive vetting process that involved testing, trials, and visits with competing suppliers, before finalising on the FA press. The new FA-presses will focus on developing laminate tubes for oral care packaging, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and other various personal care applications.

Albea and Nipeter collaborated in 2008 when Albéa, through its former UK division, Betts Group, acquired two original FA-4 flexo presses for locations in India and Indonesia.
