Based out of Greater Noida, Galaxy Packteck showcased its spout inserting machine at Plastindia 2018. First displayed in the year 2016, the machine has been the most successful product from the company so far. The GSF 12 high-speed auto spout inserting machine has a spout insertion capacity of 50 pouches per minute and can manufacture pouches of 100 x 150 x 120 mm to 240 x 350 x 120 mm (width, length and thickness) size.

In addition to the spout inserting machine, Galaxy showcased a 3-side pouch sealing machine. The machine runs at 400 pouches per minute and has the ability to manufacture pouches of 75 x 75 mm (min) and 300 x 300 mm (max) size.

“To sell a machine worth crores or lakhs to a new customer at an event is next to impossible. The entire process takes time. After initial discussions, every machine buyer looks for many other options. We have to wait for them to finalize our product. The process takes up to 6 months,” says Brijesh Kumar, senior manager – Accounts, Galaxy Packteck. “We did receive some fresh enquiries this time. Plastindia as an event is so huge that it provides you an unmatched platform. One comes to this event with the hope of cracking some new deals. But, as I said, it takes time. So, we have to wait for some time before we crack some new orders.”

Kumar, however, said that the company was optimistic about getting more than 20 orders during the show.

Japanese machines are technologically advanced and most renowned in the world, and Galaxy Packteck proudly claims to be the first Indian company to bring Japanese technology to customers in India.

Talking about the USP of the company, Kumar shares, “The machines provided by us do not require any maintenance and whatever money we make is purely out of sales of these machines and not out of maintenance.”

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.
