After wrapping up a successful K-Show in Germany and LabelExpo India in Greater Noida last year, Ahmedabad-based Acme Rolltech is gearing up for a great PlastIndia 2023.

At the upcoming PlastIndia, Acme Rolltech will showcase its made-in-India anilox rolls for stack flexo presses along with anilox sleeves for high-end CI flexo presses such as W&H, Bobst, Uteco, Comexi, and KYMC, Sandeep Sharma, director of Acme Rolltech told Packaging South Asia. The company will also showcase its cleaning solutions at the PlastIndia booth.

Sharma said Acme Rolltech will talk about its latest engraving technology, ACE – Advance Channel Engravings, during the show. This technology features new engraving patterns that help packaging and label printers resolve issues such as ink spitting, bottling, etc. The technology also helps improve print quality and makes it easier to clean aniloxes.

PlastIndia: A very important show

From Acme Rolltech’s point of view, PlastIndia is a very important platform where every stakeholder from the packaging industry comes to exchange new ideas and showcase new innovations.

“PlastIndia is one of the biggest exhibitions in India for the packaging industry and is happening after a gap of almost four years. We are excited about the event as we are catering to almost all OEMs and customers who are related to this industry in India and who use flexo printing techniques,” Sharma said.

PlastIndia 2023 is important for the company as the expo falls during a phase when Acme Rolltech is reporting strong growth and is looking to expand aggressively its market share in India and beyond. The year 2022 was phenomenal for Acme Rolltech as it doubled its production capacity and is operating 24×7.

“We achieved an exceptional growth of 48% in 2022. We are growing at a rapid pace with the support of our customers within India and around the globe. We are exporting to more than 25 countries. Our target is to make it to 50 countries by the end of 2023. We are attending Label Expo Bangkok, which is happening immediately after this event, from 9 to 11 February. We are increasing our foothold in the Asean market as well,” Sharma concluded.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
