Combating COVID-19 With Effective Change Management


Robin Banerjee
Managing Director,
Caprihans India Ltd.

Robin Banerjee, the Managing Director of Caprihans India Ltd is a senior professional executive with about four decades of experience in several large multinational corporations in more than 20 countries. “Caprihans” is the pioneer in producing PVC films through calendaring process in India .

In a free-wheeling interview to “Medical Plastics Data Service", apart from sharing about the company’s journey from concept to the current position in this product segment (including for Medical & Healthcare sectors), he also explains how the company has

kept pace with changing times particularly with respect to market trends and technologies and also their contribution to the Healthcare Industry towards COVID-19 management. In his opinion, the mankind cannot do away without “Plastics” which was invented to protect nature – to save wood, ivory and rare metals.


“Caprihans India Ltd” has been manufacturing PVC Films for various industrial applications since long. Can you please throw some light on your company’s journey from concept to the current position in this product segment?


Caprihans brought into India the concept of producing PVC films through calendaring process. Being a pioneer in this industry, the company has earned typical expertise to produce quality products. I believe the manufacture of PVC films is both a science and an art. Science is easy to learn, but it takes a long time to master any art. The ability to juggle both the science and art of PVC technology, has enabled the company to occupy a premier position in the industry.


When did your Company start catering to the Medical & Healthcare segment? What are the products?


With Covid bringing a standstill to portions of the company’s operations suddenly in mid-March 20, it was a shock to all of us. It took us a few weeks to get over the jolt. Except packaging requirements for pharma, the local authorities would not even allow our factory to even commence work. We quickly put our thinking caps. Lo and behold, several ideas crept out – how to use PVC to save and protect lives. However, with the lockdown all around in April-May period, severe panic on catching the virus and migration of the work force, most vendor factories were without employees. Inspite of the serious impediments, we took steps to innovate and develop various life - protecting products simultaneously.


Our new products - PPE or Hazmat suits from PVC – perhaps the safest product under virus environment;


- Face shields – which are unique in design capable of being worn for long hours without headaches;
- Hospital Curtains and hospital bed linens from PVC-anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and perfumed;
- Portable and foldable PP beds – anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-microbial;
