Chicago — For both Anant Chaturvedi and Uflex Ltd., America has been a place to grow and make a mark on the world.

For the man, it has been a way to strike out on his own and move beyond his father’s rather large shadow, Chaturvedi said.

For the company, it has been a way to move closer to customers, create value and go beyond commodity markets.

Chaturvedi is Indian by birth, but American by choice, having become a U.S. citizen.

He views the country as a land of opportunity for both himself and his film-making company, which operates as Flex Films (USA) Inc. at a plant in Elizabethtown, Ky.

Chaturvedi said, “Uflex recognises its responsibility to the environment. It has been recycling all types of multi-layer packaging waste, in varied combinations and structures, successfully for the past two decades. It was awarded in Davos for this initiative way back in 1995.”
