Sandeep Vats, director, Vats Packaging, said, “We were using multiple manual die-cutting machines in our post-production and wanted to invest in an automatic solution so that we can convert our jobs fast with safety. Our search ended with Robus India. The cost of the equipment and the bottom-feeder were two main reasons to opt the die-cutter. Another reason was the fact that Robus India’s office is just an hour away from our factory in Noida. So, if we require some help, it will reach us soon.”

Vats Packaging is a family-owned business established by Sandeep Vats in 2000 and run by the Vats brothers, Sandeep and his elder brother Girish. Sandeep is a nuclear physics post-graduate and Girish is a company secretary.  

Vatsa stated, "In the year of our establishment, we achieved a turnover of Rs 1-2 lakh, and last year, we surpassed that milestone, reaching a commendable benchmark. We deal in almost each and every segment of packaging products. We serve local as well as multinational clients.”

Currently, the company runs two plants, one for mono cartons and offset printed 3ply and 5ply boxes, and another for corrugation. “We have all the facilities in-house except paper and board. We provide inner and outer both the packaging solutions and the ratio is 60% and 40% respectively,” Vats said.

In the last three years, the company has installed fully automatic die-cutters, flute laminators, semi-automatic folder-gluers and constructed a 25,000 sqft new plant. 

Vats said the company has grown well in the last 23 years. “We have learned a lot and grown a lot. So, for me, it’s been a wonderful journey,” he added.

He said the die-cutter comes with all the required features for the company. It cuts boards from 1.5- to 8.5-mm at the speed of 6,000 sheets an hour. “This automatic machine reduces our dependency on the labour, working hours have been reduced,” Vats said.

Next, the company wants to establish a three-ply automatic corrugation plant to serve its existing customers in Delhi-NCR, Rudrapur, Haridhwar and few other places.

Vats concluded, “Customers’ satisfaction is the key for us. We want to make products which can help us win the trust of our clients. The future of corrugation industry is bright. We think that the growth of the industry will be around 20%.”
