Greater Noida-based Galaxy Packtech highlighted its automatic high-speed pouch-making machines — the GS-200 Plus 200 and GSC 14 Plus 200 — at IntraPac 2024 in Greater Noida in March. Since their plant was near the India Expo Center, the exhibition venue, the manufacturer of pouch-making machines decided not to display the machine live at the event. Instead, it arranged visits to the plant for potential customers.

Gaurav Sharma, chief marketing officer of Galaxy Packtech, spoke about the company’s market share — almost 90% in stand-up zipper pouches and 60% in center seal pouches. “Since most of the pouching plants are concentrated in the Gujarat, Daman, and Silvassa regions, our dominance is particularly strong in the western region of the country with a significant number of machine installations.” He adds, “Wherever pouching is happening, Galaxy is there.”

In the conversation, Sharma emphasized the rapid and continuous developments in the pouching industry. He stressed the importance of staying responsive to market needs, stating that the key to success lies in understanding the needs and anticipating future trends. “It’s not just about machines, it’s the service, support, and people as well.” According to him, research and development is highly essential for staying ahead of the curve.

Talking about future plans, he spoke about the company’s participation at K 2025 in Dusseldorf, Germany, where it will launch its new line of filling machines. Additionally, Galaxy Packtech is focussing on designing high-speed spouting lines for recyclable pouches.

Sharma said, “Our target is to design machines that can run at high speed, even on recyclable same-family materials. Right now, the existing machines are not good for spouting in recyclable pouches. Galaxy Packtech will launch something on these lines soon.”
