Greater Noida-based Galaxy Packtech announced its deal to sell its GS-24 Plus 200 automatic stand-up pouch-making machine to German packaging solutions provider Maropack Gmbh during Interpack 2023 that took place from 4-10 May. Galaxy Packtech demonstrated the machine live at the expo. 

“We were in discussion with Maropack before Interpack. A team from Maropack came and signed the deal on the first day of the show. We chose to make the announcement here itself. This is the second machine we will supply to Maropack and so this is a repeat order. They are extremely satisfied with our technology and the performance of the machine,” said Jagat Singh, director of Galaxy Packtech.

Great show at Interpack 2023

This was the first time Galaxy Packtech was exhibiting at Interpack. According to Singh, it was a great debut for them. The company ran the machine on all days and the visitors were very impressed with the technology on display, he said.

“We are trying to boost our exports and that is why it was necessary to be at a show like Interpack. We met a lot of interesting visitors, who were senior officials or decision makers. We had decided that if we have to make an impact at the show, we need to have the machine running live at our stand. We are extremely bullish about Indian manufacturing and about the future growth of our company,” Singh said.

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 growing 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.
