Before visiting the organization we thought to first know what actually small scale industries are and why they are called small scale industries when their turnover or profit can be at par to medium industries & then we found out that where in large scale industries there can be a large number of workforces here the work is mainly handled by hired labor usually 10-50 hands. There are certain criteria regarding the fixed capital investment which should not exceed 100 lakhs including the plant setup according to government norms. Keeping these two major points in mind we visited Pioneer Packing Products which fulfilled the mentioned criteria. SNAPSHOT OF PIONEER PACKING PRODUCTS

They are made of corrugated paperboard, which is different from the stiff paper known as “cardboard.” The edge of corrugated paperboards is a row of air columns which act as a cushion and paper column makes the box strong. These paper columns act as a medium. First a medium is glued between two flat linear sheets & to increase the strength of the box one more medium is glued.
