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.”

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
