Sidel sets up tool centre

French machine maker Sidel has set up a packaging and tooling centre in Pune, India, to meet the demand for the latest bottle packaging technology in the country. India is one of the most rapidly developing economies in the world. Soft drink sales, for instance, are growing at a rate of 9% a year. In the entire country with its 1.2 billion inhabitants, consumption of soft drinks has increased from 2.9 l in 2006 to 6.4 l in 2011. Rising incomes and healthconsciousness are pushing sales of bottled water, as well as low-calorie carbonated beverages. Sidel is currently operating six similar centres around the world: two in China and one each in France, Mexico, Brazil and the US. The centres offer bottle design to line engineering, commissioning and complete life cycle management and in India will focus on the specific requirements of the growing Indian packaging industry. With a current capacity of 1,500 units/year, the newly built mould shop is able to significantly reduce the time required to introduce new products to market, said Sidel.
