This is a direct result of the opening up of Indian defense and aerospace industries to private players in India who have responded positively to the newfound opportunity, who in turn, have responded with great enthusiasm to this opportunity.
A lot of startups have emerged in the last few years in the field of R&D as well as production of defence and aerospace products along with existing established Indian industrial houses diversifying their portfolio in this sector and growth in FDIs, leading to creation of a niche market for defence and aerospace grade specialty packaging products. Sitting right at the centre of this dynamic opportunity and demand is Pune headquartered Fropack industries.
Established in 2019, Fropack is one of the first few entrants in this sector. Mounting on the first mover advantage, Fropack offers a wide range of manufacturing capabilities in the domain of thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics. The firm has been leveraging a mix of conventional manufacturing technologies and manufacturing processes with latest technologies available in the market to bring world class products catering to defence and aerospace sector to the market today.

experienced people who are growth minded are some of the differentiating factors that give Fropack an advantage. Fropack also has a good repository of resources which helps to keep the startup abreast with latest changes and developments in the market and sector.

Fropack constantly stays in touch with the customers, right from the development stage of a product to their final delivery and throughout the shelf life of the product. Defence and aerospace grade packaging must have a long shelf life as the defence or aerospace products, must be reusable, recyclable and commensurate with quality in accordance with various domestic and international standards. While staying updated with the latest developments in this sector across the world, Fropack also maintains high standards of manufacturing and quality assurance.
Understanding the present and future demands of manufacturing sectors, as well as their pain points in carrying and delivering their products, and providing them with packaging solutions that meet global standards and are specific to their needs
