Eurobond, the flagship company of Euro Panel Products headquartered in Mumbai has been producing and distributing Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP) for over 19 years. It has a state-of-the-art plant at Umbergaon in Gujarat about 175 kilometers north of Mumbai. It is a manufacturer and fabricator of industrial architectural panels and facades, which it exports and supplies to major builders and architects.

It provides quick delivery of ACPs across state and national borders (USA, SA, Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Sri Lanka and Nepal) with an established capacity of 20,000 sq/m of ACP per day. The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has also designated Eurobond as a One Star Export House as it serves a worldwide clientele.

On the third day of Media Expo, after multiple reschedules, Indian Printer and Publisher finally met and talked with the management of Eurobond. Jayanta Das, general manager – specification pan India, Eurobond, expressed his gratitude towards the Indian Printer and Publisher team and shared his views on the exhibition. The footfalls of the visitors are more or less good or acceptable. He said, “This time, we were anticipating, there will be no crowd, but visitors have surpassed our expectations. The exhibition is organized well keeping Covid-19 in mind – everything is taken care of, sanitization, social distancing and masks.”

Eurobond show galore

Eurobond displayed its ‘HoneyComb’ structural panels. Manufactured in India for the first time and showcased at Media Expo were its high-pressure laminates, fire retardant ACP sheets, and an entire range of metallic, solid, high gloss, sparkle, mirror, marble, wooden texture, emerald, spectra, and brush decorated sheets.

Das spoke of the ACP cores and coatings Eurobond uses in manufacturing. The PVDF coating is of standard quality. The cores are aluminum virgin core, and the standard LDP cores, and the recyclable materials used to produce the ACP sheets. 

Eurobond has completed many government architectural projects for HPCL, BPCL, IOCL and private corporate projects for Reliance Trendz, Tata for building facades, decoration and integrated signage.

Expansion, collaboration and initial public offering


Near the end of our conversation, Das voiced the company’s expansion plan, “We will increase out production capacity beyond the three production lines we already have. And Eurobond is tying-up with Euramax, a foreign collaborator  from the Netherlands, for its premium range of panels. 

Das also mentioned the impending initial public offering (IPO) of the company from 14 to 16 December. The IPO consists of 65,00,000 lakhs shares with a face value of Rs. 10 being offered at a fixed price of Rs 70 each which means a premium of Rs. 60. The Rs 45.15 crore issue was oversubscribed by the last day which was 16 December, except for the portion offered to employees at a discount of Rs 7.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
