venture in India
Fix-a-Form International, the UK-based licensor of multi-page leaflet labels, has set up a joint venture in India to become an equal partner with Unick FAF & Printers. It has also funded the installation of an eight-color UV flexo press to increase the firm’s capacity and range of label formats. The total investment is worth around US$978,000.
This also happens to be the turnover of the family-owned Indian business. Based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, it supplies self-adhesive leaflet labels to FMCG, pharmaceuticals and other industries. Fix-a-Form has been working with the firm since it was set up in 1993. Tony Vasa, managing director, said the technical and machinery support from Fix-a-Form International allows the firm to upgrade faster and meet customers’ increased demand for both self-adhesive and leaflet labels.
The Bury St. Edmunds firm, a division of Denny Brothers Group, devised Fix-a-Form labels in the 1980s and now supplies them through a network of over 20 label printers in 50 countries.
