Singh adds, “With over 25 years of experience, the company has become synonymous with unmatched knowledge in the industry. Kurz India continues to be a trusted source for application and technical expertise.”

The future lies not only in growth but also in sustainability, Singh said, emphasizing the company’s commitment to environmentally friendly practices. “Kurz India envisions a role in the evolving landscape of ‘smart’ packaging, integrating data smarts and technology. The focus is on sustainable solutions such as thinner films, which help reduce carbon footprint, enhance productivity and at the same time give more yield to the customer. This is exemplified by our products DM-Smartliner (Digital metallization for decorative requests), and Mprint (Innovative digital printing solutions).”

All the participants and customers had a chance to attend a walkthrough of the facility along with a detailed tour of a new innovation center for displayed products.

As Kurz India marked its 25th anniversary, the company says it is committed to continuing its record of excellence, sustainability, and innovation. From pioneering thin-film technology and hot stamping, the next chapter is envisioned as a combination of growth, sustainability, and the core values and legacy of a family-owned company.

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 growing 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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
