According to Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman and M.D. of UFLEX Ltd, “Our consistent record of maintaining a high growth trajectory is symbolic of the potential in the industry and the corresponding faith of customers in our endeavors to excel in offering quality products which has translated in to successful long term relationships globally. Our overseas operations contribute 53% to our topline which again highlights the growing dominance of “Brand India” in the global markets across industry sectors, and we take pride in leading from the front in the flexible packaging arena.”
UFLEX is continuing with its strategy of capacity expansion and adding manufacturing lines for new product categories across facilities in Egypt, Mexico and India with aggregate investments in excess of $250 million over the next year, which will include the setting up of various green/brown field projects in India and overseas. The expansion in these facilities will give Uflex the added advantage of increased proximity to the markets and bring broad portfolio of value added products to offer its clients at competitive price points.
