Nirman Impresse, a Mumbai-based printing and packaging company, has announced the acquisition of the DGM Smartfold 800PC folder gluer. The deal was announced on the second day of Pamex 2024, being held at Mumbai’s Goregaon Exhibition Centre.

The folder gluer is slated to be installed at Nirman’s carton packaging unit in Bhiwandi, situated on the outskirts of Mumbai. The decision to invest in the DGM Smartfold 800PC is part of Nirman Impresse’s commitment to enhance productivity in its converting department.

Dhiren Thakkar, director of Nirman Impresse, said, “The new DGM folder gluer will replace our older folder gluer. This new machine will help increase our productivity in the converting department. We decided to go for DGM after getting good feedback about its technology and after-sales service. We will commission the Smartfold 800PC very soon. At the moment we are producing cartons for the pharmaceutical industry.”

Nirman Impresse, known for its diverse printing capabilities, also operates a commercial printing unit in Shah and Nahar Industrial estate in Lower Parel.

At Pamex 2024, DGM is featuring the Smartfold 800PC folder gluer alongside the Technocut 105 die cutter with stripping. The company is expected to sign multiple deals during Pamex 2024.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
