The line output will cater to both domestic and export markets. The new line is part of a series of expansions which have been announced in the last one year by the company for both its India operations and its subsidiaries in US & Korea.

Cosmo CEO Pankaj Poddar says, “I am pleased to inform that the line has been installed ahead of its schedule and well within the projected capex of 200 crores. The high-speed line equipped with automated changeovers and automatic consumption of waste will not only lead to an increase in power savings but also help the company with its overall operational efficiencies. The new line is expected to contribute to substantial growth in sales and profit in Financial Year 2017-2018.”
