Bangalore, Feb 20 (IANS) Integrated packaging machinery major Nichrome India has shipped an assembling machine to one of the largest sugar plants in Sudan for packing the sweet crystals, the company said Monday.
"The Sudanese plant will use the integrated machine to pack about 700 metric tonnes of sugar per day for retail sales. We bagged the turnkey order from Indian Sugar and General Engineering Corporation (ISGEC) to supply the machine with feeding systems, metal detectors and conveying belts," Nichrome managing director Harish Joshi said in a statement here.
The company, however, did not name the importing sugar plant in Sudan or value of the order for the heavy duty machine.
The over three decades-old Nichrome has a modern plant at Shirval, about 40 km from Pune, to manufacture about 500 machines per annum for domestic and export markets.
"We also recently bagged an order from Germany to supply a horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) machine," Joshi said without naming the firm importing the product.
The company has a licensing agreement with the US-based Prodo-Pak Corporation to manufacture high-speed multi-lane sachet packing machines for verticals in pharma and fast-moving consumer goods verticals.
