I know some companies in South India manufacturing 'Shoe-Boxes' and they have handsome export orders also. Ludhiana is basically a packaging town and it is therefore, I do feel, that there is excellent scope for rigid box in this area. On the query of some members, Keith told that there is great scope for collaboration between Chinese rigid box manufacturers and this market is open for Ludhiana printers.
