Lal: adding synergy to his ops

“The two automatic machines have helped us save time and money,” said Kaplesh Lal, director at Fusion. “Earlier we ran six semi-automatic die-cutters to produce 2-million impressions per month. Today, we produce the same amount in 20 days.” Among the features, Lal says, the zero gripper has helped his company reduce wastage of board by 3-4%.

Fusion caters to the textile and cosmetic clients in and around Gujarat. The company is equipped with a Heidelberg SM72 five-colour plus coater, two Heidelberg two-colour press plus five semi-automatic foil printing machine, two lamination machine with sheet separator, a carton folder-gluer and a China-make rigid box-making semi-automatic machine.

Fusion Print & Pack is located in a 10,000 sqft site in Surat, and has been growing at a moderate pace, thanks to its loyal customers.

The investment in rigid box-making machine has helped Fusion grow its business both in the textile and cosmetic segment, said Lal. “With our creation and new developments for gift and cosmetic boxes we were able to add new clients to our list.”

Lal further said that his next investment will be in the rotogravure space.
