Nikita Papers Investing Rs.180 Cr. to Contemplate the 'Export Market'

Paper packaging is the most preferred packaging among all other types of packaging, because of its lightweight and flexible features. The retail manufacturing industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Consumers have cottoned onto this and are taking a stance against products that are unethical or have a negative impact on the environment. The impact of plastic packaging for example, is regularly hitting the news headlines. “Paper Bag is replacing the Single use polythene in various countries, and demand for high strength kraft paper has become the prime necessity of converting industries. Nikita Papers is aimed to explore the export market on the edge of its quality paper manufacturing” explained by Mr. Ashok Bansal (in above picture), Managing Director of Nikita Papers Limited to The Pulp and Paper Times.

“Now the time has changed from maximum production to adopting superior quality norms, only to retain ourselves in paper manufacturing. The export of quality paper is our main agenda and we have decided to make an investment of Rs. 180 Cr. for producing 200 TPD lightweight and high strength quality kraft paper.” Mr. Bansal told.

“We are putting up a 200 TPD separate new paper machine in the existing plant, which is expected to be commercially operated by October 2019. This integrated QCS based 'State-of-art' infrastructure will aim to produce 60 to 100 GSM paper with 25 to 40 BF range. We will use high strength raw material for manufacturing, to be procured from out of India. This high strength kraft paper is mainly use for paper carry bag and we are targeting the China, Dubai and Korea paper market for the export primarily.” Mr. Bansal further explained.

Nikita Papers Limited was incorporated on December 8, 1980. The unit started its commercial production of kraft paper in 1992 with an installed capacity of 3500MT per annum. The Company initially set up as an Agro Waste Paper Mill for manufacturing of Kraft Paper and commenced its operations with a small 3500 TPA capacity.

Over the Years, the Company has undertaken several phases of expansion and the production capacity of kraft paper since then has increased from 3500 TPA to 36000 TPA.

Currently, Nikita Papers is a leading manufacturer of high quality kraft paper, ranges from 16 BF to 32 BF manufactured in various colors between the grammage range of 120 GSM to 300 GSM. Their products include Royal Gold, MB, Premium Red, Golden Yellow and Natural Brown paper.

“The civil construction is going on in full swing at the premise and erection process of plant and machinery is expected to start from April 2019 onwards. We have not yet finalised the plant and machinery supplier, but expected to zero on the name very soon. Our new paper plant will have all critical components mixed from china and India. The deckle of the machine will be 5 meter (finished) and speed is designed upto 700 to 800 m/m. To reduce the power consumption budget, we are considering to install a captive power plant of 8 MW. The turbine is from Triveni.” informed by Mr. Ayush Bansal, Director of Nikita Papers Limited.

“Nikita Papers has also demonstrated deep commitment to the cause of preserving the environment by adopting environmental friendly practices leading to energy conservation and ultimately savings add to the bottom line. We will install Zero Liquid discharge effluent treatment plant to be bought from Krofta Engineering” Mr. Bansal said. This paper mill will generate 500 direct employments in the region.
