The existing metal component business was also transferred from Fibre Foils to Shetron Limited and Fibre Foils focused on the paper packaging. With Mumbai growing rapidly and the urban areas expanding to include Andheri, FFL faced difficulties in expanding the plants and capacities. The manufacturing unit moved to the new facility at Khopoli near Mumbai in 1992.

The company’s thrust on quality ensured ISO certification for quality, design and development in packaging.

Fibre Foils Limited, the first company of Shetron Group, was founded in 1969 as a small scale industry, with a factory in MIDC, Andheri, Mumbai. Its first product, a composite can, was developed for a leading detergent powder manufacturer – Vim of Hindustan Lever. Subsequently, customers like Firestone, CEAT, Corn Products, etc were added and truly marked the beginning of composite can industry in India.

The company then diversified into manufacturing paper tubes for cloth winding to textile mill customers like Mafatlals, Khataus, Bombay Dyeing and developed special tubes for winding of leather cloths. In the 1970s, the dry-cell battery industry players like Estrella, GEEP, and Eveready were looking to upgrade to leak-proof batteries to be used in radios and transistors. Fibre Foils leveraged its technical capabilities and power press capacities meant for composite can components to provide a viable alternative suitable for the demanding battery industry.

During 1975-76, it expanded the existing paper product line to cater to the bulk packaging segment in the Chemical and Parma industry. The company developed a new concept, Fibre drums, which was a boon to the industry that was till then using costlier and heavier steel drums. A new company, Bulcan Fibre Drums Private Limited, was incorporated to exclusively cater to this segment.

A state-of-art plant was imported from Germany and commissioned in a new, bigger location in Andheri, Bombay. Subsequently, in the 1980s, this company was merged with Fibre Foils to give better scale and efficiency of operations.

As the battery component was growing exponentially year by year, all major players in the Indian industry switched sourcing to domestic suppliers like Fibre Foils and another competitor, Metalbox. With demand from customers increasing, a separate, dedicated company was floated to exclusively cater to the metal battery jackets and components. The new company was formed in 1980 at Bangalore, with equity participation from the Karnataka government and was named Shetron Metals Limited.

The existing metal component business was also transferred from Fibre Foils to Shetron Limited and Fibre Foils focused on the paper packaging. With Mumbai growing rapidly and the urban areas expanding to include Andheri, FFL faced difficulties in expanding the plants and capacities. The Company bought over in Khopoli near Bambay and moved operations to the new facility in 1992.

The company’s thrust on quality ensured ISO certification for quality, design and development in packaging. FFL kept on adding newer product lines to keep ahead of competitors and added the state-of-art composite can making line in 1990s, well ahead of the food packaging boom and is now ideally positioned to reap the growth.

It now has tubes for the metal, paper, plastic and cloth industries; products for the fibre glass industry; composite cans for the food segment and decorative cans for liquor, cosmetics and other allied industries. The Group has always been in the cutting edge of technology and the customer base includes leading national and multi-national manufacturers and brands.
