Plastics News Staff
As India's plastics processing
sector resumes growth after a
COVID-induced pause, auxiliary
equipment maker Aerodry Plastics
Automation Pvt. Ltd. is reviving
its own plans.
The Noida-based company,
which provides integrated automation
systems, is dusting off
expansion plans it fi rst started
in 2018, Executive Director Arun
Pundir said.
" The land was allotted for the
third site in 2018, registration
came in 2019, but then the pandemic
spread, which forced us to
defer the expansion until things
became normal, " he said. " We lost
almost 18 months due to [the]
pandemic and construction commenced
in the middle of 2021. "
Aerodry would likely complete
the construction
by the
end of the
year.
mercial
" Comproduction
would
kick-start early
next year,
coinciding
with the company's
founding
Pundir
25th
anniversar
y, "
Pundir said.
The
third
factory is a 50,000-square-foot
building in an industrial section
in Greater Noida.
Pundir said Aerodry is investing
between 70 million and 100 million
rupees ($850,000 to $1.2 million) in
its fi rst phase. " The second-phase
expansion is earmarked in the end
of 2023, depending on 100 percent
capacity utilization of the fi rst
phase, " he said.
Pundir said the investment is
driven by market demand and
capacity constraints.
" Increasing demand from the
market is one of the major factors, "
he said. " Besides, capacity
constraint at the current site
is not allowing us to meet the
delivery schedules. "
The company will focus on
adding more value to the product
line, streamlining operations, reducing
delivery time and taking
up more complex jobs, he said.
" Our capacity will increase by
four to fi ve times with the new
plant, " Pundir said.
The new plant will focus on
drying, conveying, dosing, crystallization
and blending equipment,
while the existing plant
will focus on heating and cooling
equipment.
Pundir said the new facility is
part of an attempt to upgrade its
technology and target the export
market with products he said will
be compatible with European
technology. " We are also working
on setting up a global sales and
servicing network, besides building
an incubation [and] technology
center, " he said.
The new factory will focus on
digitalization and software integration,
he said: " The integrated
manufacturing eliminates manufacturing
defects. "
There can only be one greatest plan! And we have it! For a secure and
successful future. Sustainability, efficiency and cutting-edge technology,
perfectly combined. No compromises. You can rely on our Plan A - A for
ARBURG. Wir sind da.

He said the sales network
will include agents in Southeast
Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The incubation center, which
is slated to open in the second
half of 2023, will demonstrate
machinery live.
The company is also developing
or expanding partnerships
with the Dutch equipment supplier
Ferlin BV, in gravimetric
dosing and blending, and with
Italy's Nova Frigo Engineering
srl to offer their refrigeration
and temperature control machinery
in India.
" The relationship with both
companies was forged during the
pre-pandemic phase in 2019, but
the marketing drive was hindered
during COVID, " Pundir said. " Now,
we are in the midst of fi nalizing
their product range to be promoted
in the domestic market. "
While attendance is expected to be down at K 2022, the amount of
exhibition space has actually increased vs. 2019. A total of 3,037
exhibitors are taking up 178,965 square meters, compared with
3,327 exhibitors that used 177,035 square meters in 2019.
