Raw Material

Since inception Waste Paper has been used as raw material instead of traditional usage of wood thus promoting the eco-friendly world. The Waste paper is majorly imported from USA. The plant is situated near the port giving it locational advantage.

Commenting on the Q2FY19 Financial Performance Mr Kirit G. Patel, CMD said "We are happy to share with you the strong financial performance delivered by our Company for the 2Q FY19. During this period we have reported a strong Revenue growth of 67% over the corresponding previous period on back of expanded capacity and a 1.13% increase in EBIDTA by improving margins and efficiencies in production.

We are a rapidly growing company, having made two new acquisitions in the last one year. The Funds from the IPO in Dec.2017 have been utilised for the said purpose of setting up the new line PM2 at the existing location. With this our current capacity has almost doubled to 1,75,000 mtpa in one year time. We expect to ramp up our production by the year end, to meet the increasing demand both domestically and in the export markets.

The expansion has also enabled us to expand our product offering to the full range of Kraft paper ranging from GSM 80 to 350 GSM with 22-35 BF.

Our Kraft paper is approved by a number of MNC's and large convertors as well as direct sales to the FMCG, Pharmaceuticals, Auto, E-Commerce including large MNC's. These vendors prefer larger Kraft paper manufacturers like Astron, who are pre-approved for paper quality and specifications. The demand for Kraft paper is strong and increasing with every year from new applications like fruit veg, ecom for packaging and shipping, grocers. The Kraft paper and Corrugated Box industry is fast becoming a sunrise industry.

In October, 2018 we participated in the annual three day exhibition of the Indian Corrugated Case Manufacturers association where we got a very encouraging interest and response from national as well as international convertors.

We have firmly rooted ourselves in the Kraft Paper and packaging space and aspire to continue our strong growth momentum over the next couple of years and remain focused on growing operating and profitability margins. I thank the entire team of for their constant efforts, sincerity and enthusiasm. Also, I would like to thank our valued Shareholders, who have reposed faith in our Company and supported us along with their critical inputs."
