My Dear Members,
It is with great pleasure and humility that I want to thank the FCBM family for reposing your trust and conﬁdence in me for leading the Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers of India. I am honoured by the responsibility and look forward to strive to surpass your expectations.
With the pandemic aﬀecting almost every sphere of activity it has been a great challenge to manage our production facilities smoothly and cater to the demands of our customers uninterruptedly. While we were coming to terms with the new normal and looking to regain some of the lost momentum our industry was hit by the phenomenal and unprecedented rise in kraG paper prices. Indian corrugated box industry however resilient is facing one its stiﬀest challenges yet. 2020 has indeed been a diﬃcult year. While we continue to grapple in this volatile situation we need to take care of our health and at the same time manage our ﬁnances well. I am optimistic that such stressful times will not prevail for long and hope to see better times ahead.
We are blessed with a wonderful blend of youth and experience in the FCBM Managing committee. With the support of every member of the Managing Committee we will continue with the activities and services of the federation to the best of our abilities inspite of Covid related restrictions. FCBM is like a family – each one of you is an integral part of this huge family. This family cannot progress without the active participation of all members.
We are in the brink of our 50th year and it is pertinent that every member contributes toward making this Federation stronger. I look forward to your co-operation and valued suggestions.
Wishing all members a Very Happy, Prosperous and Safe New Year!!
Best Wishes & Regards,
Milan Kumar Dey
