Manipal Technologies Ltd (MTL) has launched a packaging company — Manipal Utility Packaging Solutions Pvt Ltd (MUPSPL).

Bosch Packaging Technology is aiming to expand its position in the packaging technology market globally by 2020, and in particular in Africa and Asia. The company also intends to spur further growth by venturing into new fields of business.
“We expect to see fundamental change in the market for packaging machinery. We not only want to react to this change, we also aim to help shape it,” said Friedbert Klefenz, president of Bosch Packaging Technology, during the company’s press conference at the Interpack trade show in Düsseldorf.
