(4 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 16 marks) < Answer > Willfort India Limited (WFIL) Willfort India Limited (WFIL) is planning to go public in the coming days. These are the following guidelines on which the financial projections of its new project has to be calculated. The Company and its management: Wilfort India Ltd. (WFIL) has been formed with its Registered Office at New Delhi. Its manufacturing unit is being proposed to be set up at Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. The company will be engaged in the manufacture of Metallized Plastic Film, Multilayered Co-extruded Plastic Film and Holography film. Metallized films are used to manufacture flexible packages, which enhance the gas, moisture, aroma and light barrier properties of the pouch. These are also used in textile threads, decorative laminates, insulation labels, stamping and transfer foils, light reflective application, capacitors etc. The Multilayered co-extruded films proposed will find applications in the flexible packaging of consumer products such as dairy products, edible oil, vanaspati, lubricants, tea, coffee, pan masala, meat and marine products, fruit pulp, snack foods,

dry fruits etc. The company will also produce coated films which will be used for flexible packaging in improving the shelf appeal of pouches and for making Metallic Yarn of D.G. grade which has various textile applications and for hot stamping foils and transfer foils. The company will also have facilities for manufacturing of Metallized Plastic Film of 1200 MTPA and will regularly manufacture Metallized Polyester Film, Metallized BOPP Films etc., of various sizes and thickness. The management of the Company will be controlled by the Board of Directors of the newly formed company. Mr.I.P.S.Walia, will be the Managing Director. Mr.Walia will be responsible towards overall control over the day to day matters of the company as well he will be responsible for Corporate Planning and framing strategies for the future. Mr. Ashok Ahluwalia will be the whole time director who will be looking after the Finance. Mr.Inder Pal Singh (Director) will take care of the administration. Smt. Shukla Bansal, also a Director will be looking after Legal and Company Affairs related to the company. The overall management of the Company will be vested with the Board of Directors comprising of experienced people mentioned above from various fields.

Products and its uses


WFIL will be engaged in the manufacturing of customized packaging films with specific base material (Plastic Film / Polyester Film), manufacturing process (Metallized / Coated Films), specified thickness of metallizing coating, specified barrier properties of metal adhesion / Heat Sealability and customized width of film etc. The manufacturing process is designed to impart specified Tensile Strength / Elongation at Break / Water Vapour Transmission rate and Oxygen Transmission rate. The Company will also have facilities for lacquer and other coating on plastic films and embossing for holography. APPLICATIONS: Metallized Plastic Films is a low priced packaging material as compared to other materials. These films are used in the packaging of food products like tea, coffee, dairy products, pan masala products, products in pouches, ice cream, confectionery etc. Due to rapid growth of processed food industry and market preference for acceptance of these products in consumer packs in the recent years in India, this form of packaging is slowly replacing tin containers, glass bottles and rigid plastic containers primarily because of its lower cost, weight of packaging and easy disposability. Holography Films give protection to the products from being duplicated. The product manufactured by the Company is a flexible packaging material which is part of Packaging Industry in the country. The rough estimates indicate the size of flexible packaging industry to be around Rs. 2000-2200 crores. With the increase in use of such packaging in the industry, the industry wise share of flexible packaging is estimated as under:

Industry Processed Foods Personal Products Tea & Coffee Industrial Product Others

Share (%) 60 15 10 10 5

The flexible packaging industry which is already growing at the rate of 25% - 30% is set to grow to a rate of 40% - 45% in a couple of years. Some of the possible reasons for such a growth are: (a) Flexible packaging offers functional and economic benefits. (b) In India only 1.5% of the total processed food is packaged as against 65% in the US and 70% in Brazil and therefore there is a considerable growth potential in this sector. (c) The bulk distribution is on the downslide due to change in the consumer buying preferences. (d) Export of processed foods. (e) With increase in standard of living and preference for hygiene and cleanliness, the demand for packaging is on the increase. ESTIMATED SUPPLY: There are limited number of manufacturers in India. The Proposed Project The installed capacity of unit would be 69.02 THTPA (Thousand tonnes per annum). Commercial production is expected to start from December 1, 2006. Land and its Location A patch of land measuring one lakh square meters has already been acquired at Bhiwadi for the proposed project and is sufficient to take care of the requirements of Metallized Plastic Film manufacturing plant.

Raw Material and other Expenses The principal raw materials consumed by the unit for the production of Metallized Plastic film are Polyester Film and Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene Film (BOPP). The main suppliers of Polyester film to the Company would be: M/s Garware Polyesters Ltd., New Delhi M/s Ester Industries Ltd., New Delhi M/s Polyplex Corporation Ltd., New Delhi In order to meet the short supply of Polyester Film in the market, the Company also plans to develop the metallising technique on BOPP film, which is being procured from Max India Ltd. and Biax India Ltd. BOPP film is available in the market more easily compared to Polyester films. For the production of Co-Extruded Film the raw materials used by the company are Resins of LDPE, HDPE, LLDPE, PP co-polymer and HMHDPE. These resins are procured from Indian Petrochemicals Ltd., Oswal Agro Ltd., Reliance Polypropylene Ltd., Reliance Polytylene Ltd. METALLISING CONSUMABLES: The metallising consumables used by the company for its production are: Evaporator Boats or Crucibles and Aluminium Wire. Evaporator Boats will be imported from M/s Boride Ceramics and Composite Ltd., U.K.(now known as Sintec Ltd.) and M/s ELEKTROSCHEMELZWERK, Germany. The lead time in import of Evaporator Boats / Crucibles would be about one month. Aluminium wires will be imported from Melton Wires, U.K. & Shaped Wires, USA. COATING RAW MATERIALS: Solvents; Polymers of acrylic & vinyle resins; Coating Cylinders; Dyes. EMBOSSING: Shims & adhesive tapes. Process of Production: The Process of manufacturing consists of three phases, namely: Metallizing, Co-Extrusion process and Coating and Embossing Process for Holography. Metalllizing Process : Rawmaterials like the aluminium wire and umc boats are feeded into the metallizer. The Rewinded core then undergoes inspection, rewinding and slitting as per the requirement and then quality check. The final product is packed and is ready for dispatch. Co-Extrusion Process: The Granules are fed into the Extruder machine. Then the product is passed through the Barrel and Srews Section, Die Heads Section and Air Blowing Section. After cooling and rewinding, the process is over. Coating and Embossing Section (Holography): The prepatory film under goes a process of Coating 2-3 times along with solvents and chemicals like resins. Thereafter a process of embossing is done with shims. Thereafter a process of metallizing is conducted followed by inspection and slitting. Finally the product is packed and dispatched. Manpower At present, the existing manpower strength of the company would be 163 including 16 Nos. Managerial Staff, 20 Nos. Technical Staff and 110 nos. of workers.
