Egypt’s leading corrugated cartons services provider El Safa Press has ordered five machines from Paktek, which include three new folder gluers, one auto flute laminator and one set of one-piece and multiple-piece folder gluer. All these machines will be delivered and installed this year. EL Safa is already a Paktek customer for almost 10 years and employs its auto folder gluers and auto flute laminator.

To expand the production capacity, El Safa has opened a new factory to produce all types of corrugated sheets and boxes. The company exports to 23 countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The family-run business is taken care of by Samir Elbialy, who is also the chairman of Egypt’s Chamber of Printing and Packaging Industries, and his two sons, Sherif Elbialy and Kareem Elbialy.

The deal for the five machines was signed in Alexandria in March by Sherif Elbialy and TH Yu, general manager of Paktek Industrial and Paktek‘s repsentative in Egypt Sayed Abdellah of Al Madina for Advanced Technology. Al Madina for Advanced Technology will display Paktek folder gluers at Stand C4  Hall 3 of TECHNOPRINT 2017 that will be held from 27 to 30 April in Cairo, Egypt.

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.
