The company built the 5,000m2 plant in Changshu to cater to the FMCG and cosmetic brands in West Asian, African and Chinese markets.

With the new plant, Essel's production network now covers north, south, central, and east regions of China.

It will have an initial production capacity of 160 million tubes per year. With the second phase, which is expected to be started in 2016, this number will increase to 380 million tubes.

China is the world's second largest cosmetics market and the company said that it has high hopes for the country.

A part of the $2.4bn Essel Group, Essel Propack has annual sales of $350m.

Every year, the company produces more than six billion laminated and extruded plastic tubes and employs close to 2,500 people at 25 global plants in 12 countries including the US, Mexico, Columbia, Poland, Germany, Egypt, Russia, China, the Philippines, Indonesia and India.

The company claims a third of the global market of oral care product tube packaging.

Recently, Essel Propack also announced a global rollout of new logos, highlighting its five primary markets, beauty and cosmetics, pharmaceutical and health, food, oral and home.
