This joint venture combines Control Print’s expertise in coding and marking technology with V-Shapes’ innovative packaging machinery with snap then squeeze technology to produce recyclable/biodegradable single-use packets for a wide range of products including liquids, viscous and powdered content.

V-Shapes has developed patented unit-dose packaging machines in collaboration with Siemens, designed to create an easy-to-use system with Snap then Squeeze technology that requires only three fingers to open a sachet without cutting and tearing. This visionary packaging machine developed by V-Shapes is intended to reduce the environmental impact of packaging. The single-portion pouches are easy to open, hygienic and safe to use, making them ideal for food, cosmetics, medicines, pharmaceuticals and chemical products.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with V-Shapes,” said Shiva Kabra, joint managing director of Control Print. “Their ingenious packaging machinery and commitment to sustainability align perfectly with our values and mission. We are excited to offer our customers a complete solution for branding, coding, and packaging their products. We look forward to seeing this partnership's positive impact on the packaging industry in India.”

Christian Burattini, CEO, V-Shapes, said, “We are very excited to be partnering with Control Print. Their coding and marking technology expertise will be a valuable asset to our company. We look forward to working together to provide customers with a complete solution for their packaging needs. Control Print and V-Shapes are committed to working together to provide the best possible eco-friendly packaging solutions to Indian companies.”

He added, “This partnership will allow Control Print to offer manufacturers a complete solution for packaging and coding their products, from the initial design to the final product and will also enable CPL to expand its reach in the Indian market and provide customers with a broader range of recyclable packaging, technologically advanced packaging machinery and a complete range of coding solutions.”

V-Shapes has also created two new substrates, reNEW oX-100 and reNEW oX-500, equipped with high-barrier capabilities and certified by Interseroh as 100% recyclable. These substrates have received extremely high ratings for detection, sorting and recycling in the industrial waste system.
