    @Sabariswaran R, Kindly research the investment  and technology about making polymers from starch first. However the technology has been a failure as it is impractical to have an added problem to further complicate the collection and handling where India is lagging behind.

Thanking You, Manoj Goel, 9896767987, manojgoyal002@gmail.com
  • VIJAI BHASKAR expert adviser said on May 27, 2014

    @Manoj Goyal, Crates are widely used in India by Soft Drink Companies, Dairy, Horticultural and by many Industries for material handling. Moulds of the crates are very costly so you need to decide what application you need to concentrate on. Sintex, Neelkamal, Prince ,Brite, etc are national players. Check out your user base and you need to make customized designs from local buyers so that you do not allow competitors to get to. them.
    You should set up two units :
    1. Moulds hiring company : 100 .00 lacs
    2. Injection Moulding Job working company ; 100 .00 lacs
    This way you will keep less idle moulds and less idle machine time.
    You can avail two CGTSEM loans without collateral
