In 2017, the company began operating in the Indian market. The brand has expanded its operations significantly and will have over 40 filling lines for aseptic carton packs in operation at its customers in India by end of 2023.
The CEO of the group, Samuel Sigrist, visited India between April 3 and 5, 2023, accompanied by company executives, to open its second production plant in Palghar, which specialises in the production of its bag-in-box and spouted pouch packaging, previously marketed under Scholle IPN and Bossar.
The aim of his visit was also to further develop the good relationships with industry experts, strategic partners, and customers.
The company‘s aseptic carton journey started with two iconic customers: ITC and Coca Cola India, as it set up its local headquarters in Gurgaon in November 2017. Its growth in the sector can be attributed to its strong value proposition, which provides clients with innovative, aseptic packaging solutions. As a result, it is now associated with leading beverage players in India like Amul, Parle Agro, Coca-Cola, ITC, Milky Mist, PepsiCo, KMF, Dabur, Haldiram, and Creamline Dairy.
Today, with a strong base of installed filling machines across the country and a full-fledged, experienced local team, it is looking to further accelerate its growth trajectory in India.
Sigrist said, “SIG’s growing customer base in India is a testimony to our attractive product offering and our sustainable packaging technology. With the new investment and increased production capacities, we are set to grow significantly in the upcoming years
