In October 2020, the company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dhunseri Ventures, and Brückner Maschinenbau started to talk about the first joint project, unfortunately just in the Corona peak phase. But, a strong will to cooperate and modern videoconference technology made it possible to realise Dhunseri’s first BOPET film production line at its new large site in Panagarh/ Durgapur successfully in the end.

Chandra Kumar Dhanuka, Dhunseri’s chairman and managing director, said, “As a newcomer in the plastics film industry we were looking for an experienced partner and the best technology. Both we found with Brückner. Moreover, our two teams were a wonderful match from the very beginning.”

The 10.5-m wide line is equipped with Brückner’s unique multi-gap machine direction orienter, realising high temperature stretching technology for A grade film quality at a consistent level. Additionally, the advanced sliding chain track system “FOK 8.8” in the transverse direction orienter allows to operate the BOPET line constantly at high speed and also will reduce chain maintenance and refurbishment significantly – and thus, increase the uptime at reduced costs.

Johann Kreilinger, head of sales Middle East, subcontinent at Brückner Maschinenbau is absolutely happy with the new partnership: “During the entire project, it was an honour to deal with such a professionally managed company like Dhunseri. We are, therefore, even more pleased that the cooperation continues with two upcoming BOPP film lines and are extremely happy to have got the chance to become Dhunseri’s partner for very challenging projects.”

Dhunseri Ventures is a major player in the petrochem business with plants in India and Egypt. Further, the company had entered into a 50:50 joint venture with Indorama Ventures Public Company, a global chemical producer. Dhunseri Poly Films was founded in 2020 for the implementation of the new project of manufacturing biaxially oriented films.
