Could you tell us about your company, manufacturing base, product portfolio and core competencies?
Lohia Corp Limited has been providing advanced solutions to the woven plastics flexible packaging industry around the world for more than 3 decades in over 80 countries. The fabric produced is used in many applications such as bags for cement, fertilizer, food grains, FIBC/Jumbo Bags, Leno/Ventilated bags & many more. The global footprint of the company is serviced by subsidiaries/associates in UAE, USA, Brazil, Thailand and Indonesia, supported by sales agents in all major woven sacks producing countries. The company was incorporated as Lohia Starlinger Ltd in 1981 as a joint venture with Starlinger & Co. GmbH of Austria for manufacturing of Circular Looms. It has changed its name to Lohia Corp Ltd in March 2013, consequent to the exit of Starlinger as shareholder.
We since inception set a vision for the company to be an end-to-end supplier of the machinery & solution for the plastic woven industry. Accordingly, we expanded our portfolio in 1984 by adding tape extrusion line & winders in our production program. Continuous investments in upgrading the in-house manufacturing capabilities together with state-of-the-art research & development facility and commitment to build world-class knowledge base assisted by qualified technicians, engineers and managers, led not only to up-gradation of weaving, extrusion & winding technologies but we also added products like lamination & coating, conversion and PP multifilament extrusion lines. Today, we have full range of machinery in each of the technology vertical to cover almost the complete range of end-use application of the plastic woven fabric. We have delivered till date accumulated plastic processing capacity of 3 million tons/annum with installation base of more than 1,250 extrusion lines & 52,000 circular looms in over 80 countries producing almost full range of plastic woven fabrics & packaging solutions for our worldwide customers.
