Velvin partners with Rengo Japan for corrugation unit in Tamil Nadu

Strategic joint venture to accelerate growth and innovation


In a move that underscores the spirit of collaboration and the pursuit of innovation, two industry leaders, the Velvin Group – a leading manufacturer of paper-based sustainable packaging solutions company in India and Rengo Co., Limited, Japan have officially announced a strategic joint venture. This partnership promises to level up the landscape of corrugation Industry in India, while opening up new avenues for growth and success.  

“Rengo, a global leader in paper and corrugated box manufacturing, and Velvin, with a profound understanding of the domestic market, are poised to create powerful synergies through their collaboration,” says Vincent Mathias, Managing director of Velvin Group.

The decision to join forces in a joint venture for the upcoming corrugation unit in Cheyyar, Tamil Nadu, comes after considering the potential benefits and synergies that could be harnessed by working together. Due to Rengo’s 30% equity participation, the company will change its name from ‘Velvin Containers Pvt Ltd’ to ‘Velvin Rengo Containers Private Limited.’ 

Rengo was founded in 1909 and is headquartered in Osaka, Japan. The company and its subsidiaries manufactures and sells paperboard, corrugated boxes, folding cartons and flexible packaging in Japan and in other parts of the world. Rengo operates 198 plants across 29 locations in Asia, Europe and North America.

One of the primary objectives of this joint venture is set to significantly enhance the market reach of both companies. By combining their distribution networks, Velvin Group and Rengo Group aim to make their packaging solutions more accessible to a global audience. This strategic partnership is aimed to spark ground-breaking research and development initiatives, leading to the creation of cutting-edge sustainable packaging solutions that will meet the evolving demands of the market.

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.
