Beginnings

Packaging Industries Limited referred to as PIL in the market was incorporated in 1985 and was the design of its entrepreneurs Mr. Navin Haria and the late Mr. Raichand Virji Shah. The company had a humble beginning with a couple of monolayer extrusion machines and a set of bag making machines as demanded by the market at that time.

Expansion overseas

Kenya was in a developing spree and soon PIL graduated as the largest blown film manufacturing facility in East & Central Africa and the sales went across the Kenyan border. Flexible packaging took an upturn at a drastic rate and PIL took the reins and invested in multilayer co-extruders and multicolor flexographic printing machines and marched ahead of others in the regional market.

Innovation

In 1990's Kenya's vision for supermarkets and commodity packing grew in abundance and PIL designed, developed and assisted the packers in the flood of innovative packaging. Thus the need arose and PIL invested in the state-of-the-art sophisticated automated converting machinery.

Certification

A compliance requirement for BRC/IOP qualification became mandatory for our exports to neighboring African and European countries after a tie up with multiple organisations in U.K. and thus we are certified since July 2008

It was imperative for PIL to continue to expand and bring about the best of flexible packaging available around the world and the march is on for innovated product designs and printing technologies emerging in the world markets.
