The demand for plastic containers and closures in the US-type format for the European market is increasing at Gerresheimer. Gerresheimer will relocate the production of the containers and caps for Europe to Haarby in Denmark so that it can be supplied in a time-saving and energy-saving manner, the company said in a press statement.

“Sustainability has many facets for us and our customers. It’s not just about what we produce, but also how and where. Creating better options for shorter delivery routes is an important point because it saves time, money and energy. For this reason, we are now producing our US type containers, which we have previously produced in India for the entire world market, for European needs in Europe,” says Niels Düring, global executive vice president at Gerresheimer Primary Plastic Packaging.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
