MUMBAI, INDIA: Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics (P&SP) partnered with Time Technoplast (Time Tech), a multinational conglomerate with focus on polymer product manufacturing, to develop PacXpert packaging technology in India.

This collaboration enables Time Tech to manufacture PacXpert and quickly bring to market various packaging applications to service Indian sub-continent and GCC countries (including Egypt)-based consumers.

PacXpert packaging technology is an innovative packaging format that enables the transition from larger traditional rigid containers to flexible packaging options. The distinctive flexible stand-up pouch is durable, lightweight, and cost-effective. While flexible, the ‘cube-shaped’ package is shelf stable and can stand equally well upright or on its side. It also provides multiple environmental benefits by minimizing content waste, reducing raw materials and offering a higher product-to-package ratio.

Through this award-winning technology, empty packages can be shipped flat, increasing shipping and warehouse efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of entire value chain. Emptied containers also take up less receptacle space when discarded. Since the amount of material used is lesser, it has higher recyclability value and removes waste removal costs at end of life. 

PacXpert has reached 75 packages on the shelf globally, which reaffirms the commitment from Dow, Time Tech and several other industry leaders around the world who are committed to making this packaging technology a success in a variety of different applications.

“PacXpert provides consumers with a functional and sustainable packaging solution that can be used for a wide range of applications for India’s rapidly growing consumer market. The collaboration with Time Technoplast will help drive a shift to sustainable flexible packaging that will be good for brand owners, consumers and the environment,” said Bambang Candra, Asia Pacific commercial vice president of Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics.

“We are always excited to work with innovative packaging formats and want to be first in the industry to manufacture the latest designs. Our partnership with Dow India combined with our market reach and passion to lead the change, makes us well positioned for making PacXpert a success in India,” said Anil Jain, managing director and CEO, Time Technoplast Ltd.
