TCPL Packaging Limited, formerly Twenty-First Century Printers Ltd was incorporated in August 1987. It is an ISO 9001:2000 and BRC/IoP certified packaging unit. It is one of leading and largest manufacturers of folding cartons in India.
TCPL Packaging Ltd began commercial production at its plant at Silvassa, Union Territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli, in April 1990, with a web-fed printing machine equipped with an in-line die cutter.
The first client being Godfrey Phillips India (associates of Phillip Morris International), TCPL had its initial experience in the cigarette industry. Printed shells and hinge lid packs were what TCPL cut its teeth on, and from there, it was no looking back.
With the precious experience gathered while catering to the needs of Godfrey Phillips India TCPL began to look at other players in the cigarette industry and soon had many other cigarette majors as its clients.
Business was looking good and it was time to expand. The second six colour rotogravure machine was commissioned at its plant in 1995. With this, it also started forays in the liquor industry.
Then, in 1997, TCPL became the first printing and packaging unit in India to have been certified 1SO 9002. It added a state-of-the-art six colour offset printing machine at its plant and got all set to take on the future in the year 2001.
By 2005, not only had TCPL started supplying printed cartons to almost all FMCG manufacturers in India, but exports were also growing at a very fast pace. It felt the need for an additional manufacturing unit to service its customers in the northern region of India.
In the year 2005, TCPL set-up its second plant, a state-of-the-art manufacturing unit at Haridwar in the Northern India at an outlay of Rs.300 million (US$ 6.5 million). Since then TCPL has been constantly adding equipments and new capacity to maintain its level of service and quality to its ever growing range of customers. Today, TCPL is one of the largest converters of paperboard in India and its revenue for the year ended 31st March, 2008 is Rs.130.93 crores equivalent to approx $32.50 million.
