Navi-Mumbai-based Worldpack Automation Systems, which specializes in self-adhesive labeling machines, displayed its products at the PackPlus exhibition held from 10 – 12 August in New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan.

Mukesh Ajmani, VP – sales and marketing, Worldpack Automation Systems, says  a lot of players are looking for labeling automation in the industry and they provide full labeling automation to different segments in the industry. 

We are a leading brand now. We cater to a wide range of segments such as FMCG, edible oil, lube oil, dairy, beverages, liquor, personal care, cosmetics, and pharma products. Wherever we see labels, our machines are there,” he said.

Worldpack has installed more than 3,000 automatic labeling machines in India and 25 other countries, including Egypt, Brazil, South Africa, Thailand, the US and West Asia. Ajmani says their machines are efficient, reliable, easy to maintain, and cost-effective. Worldpack has a nationwide sales and service network that enables it to serve customers effectively with a minimal turnaround time.

The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the demand for labeling automation, he says. “The demand for ‘Made in India’ products has spurred the industry, which, in turn, has led to an increased demand for labeling and automation. Every segment is looking for quality.”

Many segments faced a labor problem during the Covid-19 pandemic, he said, adding Worldpack’s machines not only provide labor savings but also quality in finished products.

The industry is under pressure to reduce costs. They want to save on labor and optimize other costs. Automation helps to improve production quality and overall productivity and saves on labor. With time, we will see automation in other segments as well,” he concluded.

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!
