Dario Urbinati takes over as head of Sales at Gallus, from 1 June 2021. The new head of Sales is a familiar face at the long-established Swiss company which is again back in the Heidelberg portfolio since its sale to a Swiss group was not completed. Dario Urbinati worked for Gallus from June 2007 to August 2016, as the managing director of the then newly established sales and service organization Gallus South East Asia.

In the last several years, Urbinati has been enjoyed leading positions within the graphic industry and chemical industry, most recently as chief Sales and Marketing officer at ACTEGA Metal Print in Germany. Beginning 1st June 2021 he will be working from St Gallen, the Swiss headquarters of the Gallus Group.

In his function as the head of Sales he reports as a member of the management board directly to the head of Company, Dr Frank Schaum. “We are delighted that we have won Dario Urbinati for the position of head of Sales. He knows the needs of our markets and also knows many of our customers personally. Both our customers and our sales team will benefit from his many years of sales experience and industry knowledge,” comments Dr. Frank Schaum.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
