Fosber Asia, part of the Fosber Group based in Italy that operates mainly in the corrugated packaging machinery segment, is a manufacturer and supplier of complete corrugated lines. The company also provides major machinery upgrades across the globe with a dedicated quality and customer service. The company has China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand as its major markets in the Asian region. Fosber Asia has recently developed a special corrugated machine line for the Asian market named ProLine. Special emphasis is laid on ensuring that certain specifications in the ProLine machines are in accordance with the Asian market conditions.

The difference between Fosber and other companies is that we don’t compromize on technology in order to achieve our sales targets. As everyone knows, technology comes at a certain price and India is a huge market. Although China has a fairly larger per capita consumption of corrugated packaging as compared to India, the opportunity is huge. Technology has more or less penetrated in the Chinese market whereas that in India is lacking. Top corrugation companies are also performing well in the Indian market, which is a clear indication that the domestic market is now ready for high-quality machinery for mass production,” says Marco Bertola, general manager of Fosber Asia.

The cost of manpower and raw materials is also increasing significantly in the country. This is the reason why it is extremely important to increase the efficiency of corrugated lines. With globalization, quality consciousness is increasing and the demand for good quality packaging is on a rise. “After US, Europe, China and the Middle East, we believe that India has now grown to a standard where it requires top-of-the-line machines for producing packaging,” Bertola believes.

This is the first time we are exhibiting at this show independently. Looking at this market, I’m pretty happy as there are a lot of enquiries. This is a good experience. Some of the prospects we met over here already know about our machines, in terms of the technology that we offer and the speed of our machines. That was pretty encouraging for us. It makes our job easy as we now have someone who knows us. I think India is a promising market and we’re pretty sure we’ll grow soon,” Bertola concludes.

As you join us today from India and elsewhere, we have a favour to ask. Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact. Our traffic as per analytics more than doubled in 2020 and many readers chose to support us financially even when advertising fell to pieces.

As we come out of the pandemic in the next few months, we hope to again expand our geography and evolve our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information, with some of the best correspondents in the industry. If there were ever a time to support us, it is now. You can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help to sustain us by subscribing.
