“We will continue to strive towards excellence in corrugation industry with the world-class technology from BHS,” he added.

Currently, the company has 10 corrugators operating in India. “All of them are highly productive and state-of-the-arts plants,” Sharma added.

BHS India employs 14 high skilled professionals. It has recently opened a new office in Pune with a capacity to accommodate 50 employees.
