On 21 July 2020, Comexi, a global to the flexible packaging printing and converting sector, demonstrated its firm commitment to the digital era.

Additionally, Comexi presented the well-known Comexi Cloud digital services platform, various new services of the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Center, and industry 4.0 and sustainability solutions. These are some of the company’s strategic pillars.

Comexi took the opportunity to unveil the new technological brand Genius Tech, which encompasses all of its technological developments, both those that are already a part of the current flexographic press line and those that will be in the new concept flexo press in the foreseeable future. Genius Tech is Comexi’s technological response to customers’ primary concerns: ultra-short runs, low machine OEE, and the necessary training for operators, among others. Genius Tech adds technology and intelligence to the machines to make them more sustainable and improve processes.

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.
