Multitec talks about printers entering the packaging industry
Amit Ahuja, chief executive officer at Multitec, speaking about the event, said, “PrintPack is a diversified event which attracts printers from all fields – offset, gravure and flexo, so in that sense, it is an important event for us. Also, there is a change taking place within the packaging industry towards short runs, and we fit perfectly in that niche. Many commercial offset printers are excited by the opportunity to enter the packaging market, and gravure printers are looking for shorter run solutions. Both of these will be catered to by our product portfolio.”
“As every industry is effected massively by the pandemic and its consequences, so many printers from India are still avoiding the exhibitions. A major footfall is not expected at the event, however, one can aim to be rationally optimistic as events like these provide a huge opportunity for growth,” he concluded.
Note: The IPPGroup will be publishing the PrintPack India Show Daily on all five days of the event from 26 to 30 May 2022. Our May issues of Indian Printer and Publisher and Packaging South Asia will also contain previews of the event.
