Jitendar PAl Singh, Kurz India CEO with Team at Labelexpo India

Kurz India, a leading provider in hot stamping and cold stamping foiling technologies, exhibited digital embellishment solutions at LabelExpo India 2022, held from 9 to 13 November at India Expo Centre and Mart, Greater Noida.

“We think customers expect more from us. Being a total solutions provider for existing digital printing machines for foil printing, we want to be there for our customers to tend to their requirements and specifications. We showcased our foil-saver solution, which enables our customers to reuse the foil, which can be quite costly,” said Jitender Pal Singh, CEO of Kurz India. ‘Making every product unique,’ is the company’s motto.

Singh says the company’s major attractions are Distorun, Digital Embellishment, and Scribos.

According to Singh, demand had decreased during Covid but now it is safe to say that the graph is rising and the figures are going up.

Kurz, which has footprints in all major countries in the world, is aiming at a SAARC expansion. It plans to expand to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. “Bangladesh primarily because of its promising economy. We see a huge potential in different segments such as conventional packaging and the textile industry. Kurz’s partners are ITC, EPL, TCPL, Parkson’s.

On the LabelExpo event, Singh said, “LabelExpo is a very significant event for us as this is where Kurz can showcase its solutions. But on a personal note, I think the footfall could have been better.” 

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
