DGM India has closed deals for 12 machines in the first three days of the 15th Printpack India show. The company sold a number of folder gluers and die-cutters and one hot foil stamping machine to customers from across the length and breadth of India.

Sun Industries from Baddi bought four DGM machines, one Technocut 1050S die cutter with stripping and another Technocut 1050 without stripping. Sun also purchased a Smartfold 1100SL which can process 4 and 6-corner cartons. It has bought another Smartfold 800PC which can process only straight-line and lock-bottom cartons.

Noida-based Lynx Designers bought a hot foil stamping machine and a Smartfold 1100SL. Shree Devi Packaging from Agra purchased a Technocut 1050 die-cutter without stripping and a Technofold 1100PC folder gluer.

“Lynx have been using our die-cutter for the last eight months and were extremely happy with our machine. That is why they have now ordered two more DGM equipment,” said Puneet Agarwal, director of DGM India.

Zaware Creative from Pune bought a Technocut 1050 die-cutter without stripping and a Smartfold 1100SL folder gluer. “Zaware were commercial printers who diversified into packaging in 2016 and are now going for automation,” Agarwal said.

Winpack Ventures from Chennai bought a Technofold 1100AC while Santoshi Enterprises from Noida has also bought a Technofold 1100C. “Many converters from tier 2 and tier 3 cities have bought our machines and this shows that more players in the carton segment in India now want to provide quality cartons to their brand owner customers. We expect to close more deals by the end of the Printpack show,” Agarwal said. 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
