Coesia, a group of 21 companies specializing in industrial and packaging solutions, participated in Achema 2022 with great satisfaction, having elicited new business opportunities and enjoyed opportunities for positive comparison. 

Achieving the aims of experiencing a moment of sharing and of offering a detailed overview of all Coesia solutions on display, the stand hosted visitors from over 50 countries around the world, thanks to the presence of a team of experts and live demos.

The trade show provided the company with five intense days of showing the international public the group’s latest innovations that were designed to meet the sector’s most pressing needs. 

Among them were advanced packaging machines, printing solutions, and industrial automation, all of which aim to improve production efficiency and simplify operations, as well as reduce the ecological footprint of packaging for the pharmaceutical sector.

Six group companies – FlexLink, GF, Hapa, MGS, Norden, and Volpak – presented their latest innovations and services for customers who face new market challenges, such as the growing digitalization of operations and the implementation of new business models increasingly focused on sustainable policies.

The Group is focusing more and more on digital tools and services – fundamental pillars of its business strategy – to optimize the efficiency of machines, lines, and entire factories and provide complete support to customers.

This heightened focus is proved by Coesia Digital’s latest innovations, which were presented and demonstrated during the event – OptiMate, Coesia’s new smart HMI, available on the solutions of Hapa, Enflex, Volpak, and PerforMate, Coesia’s IIoT platform for monitoring machines in real-time.

A special area of the stand – the Coesia Shelf of Sustainable Solutions – was dedicated exclusively to the management of sustainable materials and eco-sustainable packaging offered by Coesia companies in the pharmaceutical sector.

After the success of this edition of Achema, Coesia will travel to America for the next exhibition, the long-awaited edition of Pack-Expo 2022 in Chicago. The focus: machinery and products designed to increase the reliability and efficiency of production processes in the three areas of food and beverage, pharma and personal care, and cross-Industry automation. In addition, the re-commerce project for companies seeking automatic solutions for online order management will be launched for the occasion.

Coesia is a group of 21 companies specializing in highly innovative industrial and packaging solutions based in Bologna, Italy. 

Coesia companies are present in the fields of advanced automatic machines, packaging materials, industrial process solutions, and precision gears. Coesia’s customers operate in a wide range of sectors in the market, such as aerospace, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, electronics, healthcare, automotive, tobacco, consumer, and luxury goods.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
