Mumbai-headquartered TechNova Imaging Systems, recognized as one of the leading providers of digital and analog imaging consumables, has in recent years also sold hardware such as computer to plate (CtP) devices and sample making tables. The company has always had an eye on the relevance of digital and sustainable solutions as a leading supplier of integrated solutions, hardware, consumables, and services. It has kept expanding its reach further in imaging – to the print, publishing, packaging, textile, engineering, signage, and photo industries. 

This year, TechNova known for its technology and knowledge sharing on the shop floor with its customers completed its 50 years in the graphic industry. And in the recent years, they have also sold hardware like CtPs, digital production presses, digital print embellishment presses, postpress devices, and print finishing devices. Packaging South Asia met with Ekta P Mhatre, the company’s manager-product marketing at its stand at the recent PackPlus exhibition in the Delhi NCR. The company’s digital print finishing devices and a digital cutting table from Jingwei were shown on its stand there.

Speaking with Mhatre about the trade show, we realized that it was the company’s first participation in any event after the Covid-19 pandemic almost 22 months ago. Speaking about the positive response from customers, she explained to us how the printing and packaging industries have grown and constructively utilized their time during the Covid-19 period. “The Indian market is opening up as hoped, and things are getting back to normal. We’re pleased to be a part of PackPlus 2021, as it is our first public appearance since Covid-19,” she said. 

TechNova’s Go Green Mission

TechNova is committed to helping the printing and packaging industry adopt eco-friendly solutions, reduce its carbon footprint, and to eliminate waste while facilitating sustainable growth. In the conversation on sustainability, Mhatre mentioned, “We are taking further footsteps in our green initiative and trying to be greener. In drupa also, there was a big hype about sustainability and industry 4.0, so, I think this is the right way to go ahead for a better future. In packaging, any growing company should develop and work towards sustainable applications, and then only will it be easier to survive in the future. So, everyone should work on the sustainability part.”

Mhatre concluded our conversation by speaking about the company’s expansion, “Right now, we are working on our current portfolio and trying to tie up with many companies for digital postpress. We were always there for the last 50 years in the conventional offset and packaging setup. Currently, we are working with Konica Minolta, Duplo, and Jingwei devices to cover the entire area of digital graphics. I think this is a good time to move ahead.”

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 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.
