"The journey has just begun - a journey whose success will be judged by our ability to expand horizons by consistently exceeding expectations. It is our stated objective to assure a better quality of life through better packaging- thus, spreading happiness across a wider canvas "

Sudip Dutta
Chairman, Ess Dee


Ess Dee Aluminium consists of the parent company, Division India Foils and its 100% subsidiary, Flex Art Foils Ltd. With over 100 years of collaborative experience, we are the leading providers of primary packaging solutions in the Asian Market, poised to expand horizons globally by consistently exceeding expectations.

A Brief History

For close to a century Division India Foils has been one of the largest producers and pioneers of Aluminium Foil in Asia. A force to reckon with in the field of Aluminium foil manufacturing, Division India Foils was born as Venesta Foils in Kamarhati, near Calcutta, on the bank of the river Hooghly in 1905.

The Making of a Giant

1936 – First Foil Rolled in Asia at Division India Foils factory
1945 – Resumed production after World War II
1949 – First Pharmaceutical Foil produced at Division India Foils
1958 – First Pharma Strip Foil with sealant coating established
1959 – Multi-coloured printed Biscuit wrap established
1975 – Blister Pack established
1978 – Telecommunication Cable Wrap established

Ess Dee Aluminium on the other hand, started in 1991 with 12 employees and a unit for making sachets for Oral Rehydration Powders. This humble beginning went on to become one of modern India’s most inspiring success stories as Ess Dee grew and expanded into the most influential player in the Aluminium Packaging business finally acquiring and absorbing Division India Foils under its umbrella in 2008.

Ess Dee was the first in India to manufacture dedicated high-end pharmaceutical packaging products like Cold Form Blister and Child-Resistant-Blister packaging. The company’s product portfolio has significantly enhanced since then, now covering a wide range of sophisticated and technologically advanced products.
