Ansapack optimises the packaging supply chain with Esko software modules
Mumbai-based multifaceted packaging company, Ansapack, meets the demands of the pharmaceutical industry for its primary, secondary and tertiary packaging. Providing film, foil, folding carton and corrugated packaging materials, Rs 300 crore turnover company Ansapack has 1,800 employees at its five manufacturing plants in Western India – two in Maharashtra and three in Gujarat, is one of the few companies in South Asia, delivering these three types of packaging to its customers.
As Ansapack steadily grows, it is adding to its Esko packaging prepress software modules in order to speed up and automate its workflows and processes such as its current implementation of the Esko Automation Engine tool in its primary packaging division. While the tool has been in use for the last one-and-a-half months, its full implementation will take another month. “We are not designers of packaging. We are converters in every sense of the word and because we are converters we have invested in the Esko Automation Engine tool. We used Esko in the secondary packaging division but now Ansapack is the first company in India servicing the pharma industry to apply the Esko workflow tools in the primary packaging division,” says Gautam Agarwal, joint managing director of Ansapack.
Once fully implemented, Agarwal expects Esko Automation Engine to increase customer service levels on the prepress side to speed up the process and deliverables to customers. “With this Esko tool our intention is to convey that we have something unique, which will help us in providing better services compared to what customers are getting in the market,” comments Agarwal. While, Srihari Rao, sales director of Esko for India says, “We are extremely gratified to see Ansa’s growth as a leading packaging supplier. We believe that we have all the necessary pieces to add to our customer’s investments: increased automation tools, for instance, are necessary to avoid mistakes and to speed up the complete packaging supply chain.”
