Creative Graphics is one of the largest flexo prepress trade houses engaged in prepress processing the production of flexo printing plates, digital flexo plates, letterpress, and coating plates. The continuously growing company keeps adding new production locations and the latest technology to keep its commitment to brand owners and packaging converters.

Headquartered in Noida the company has a country-wide presence with six manufacturing units providing the highest quality, and solutions for its clients’ most challenging jobs, and the high level of engagement and service that are essential in achieving excellence in packaging prepress and printing.

In October 2021, Creative Graphics participated in the IndiaCorr Expo, which took place at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, after the long gap caused by the safety constraints of the pandemic. At the Creative Graphics stand, we met with its managing director Deepanshu Goel. Goel was busy throughout the show with customers and showing them some of the innovations and improvements achieved by mastering the newest technologies.

Goel said that the footfall at the event was surprisingly large and it was “a good crowd.” He added that he was happy to meet the company’s old customers after a long time, especially those who attended the trade show to make the right decisions for their business.

A regular participant in IndiaCorr Expo, Goel spoke about his company’s experience in the pandemic and about the Covid-19 situation, “Every situation gives you some challenges, and the Covid period was a bit challenging for us, but it gave us a new dimension to grow. We started new facilities during the Covid period, knew our clients better, and increased our efficiencies. So, overall it was a good learning experience for us, Covid has taught us so many things.”

Creative Graphics said – ‘We are blessed to be a part of the packaging industry’

“We have come up with a new technology which is premounted plates and is made with the help of new cutting tools from Esko having zero error. At this exhibition, we are displaying high-quality 4-color printing plates, which are prepared for the support of Emba, Bobst, and some Chinese machines.”

Goel was referring to flexo plate requirements brought about by the boom in the last couple of years of flexo print and gluer machines that are increasingly used to print on corrugated boards, and then diecut and folded and glued inline in many cases. These automated machines are used to efficiently and productively make higher quality printed boxes without the problems of fishtailing. They have helped corrugation with print and branding to do well in the pandemic with the boom in eCommerce and its increased use in the quick delivery of meals.

Goel concluded his conversation with a wise message to the packaging industry, “We are very blessed to be a part of the industry. And, the market is growing at a good pace, and we will all of us overcome this problem or setback that has affected us financially as well as emotionally.”



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!
