A press release issued on 2 December reveals that the British company Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd., a worldwide leading manufacturer of slitting technology for web-shaped materials joins Kampf Schneid- & Wickeltechnik GmbH & Co. KG as a part of the Jagenberg Group Industrial Solutions sector. We last saw both of these companies at the K2019 show in Dusseldorf.

Kampf Schneid- & Wickeltechnik and Atlas Converting Equipment provide machines and solutions with the highest level of technology and extensive services for their global customers. The addition of the product ranges of both companies with their highly qualified employees, as well as the clear positioning of the three renowned brands Kampf, Atlas and Titan, will further strengthen the joint innovative power and the variety of solutions.

Kampf, Atlas and Titan will continue to serve independently, innovative solutions combined with worldwide services, giving high security for their customers’ investment. The companies will create a new quality in terms of application – and process knowledge as well as automation and digitization. This will ensure the long term availability of installed machines by offering a common global service that covers all brands, using their strong networks and trusted resources. The business will be expanded by including productivity-enhancing automation solutions and state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 applications to become the global solution provider for the industry.

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 grown 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!
