Toppan group companies at Pack Print International 2022

Packaging and printing expo in Bangkok from 19-22 October

Concept for the Toppan Group booth at Pack Print International 2022

Tokyo- Toppan, a global provider of communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, will participate in the Pack Print International 2022 with Toppan Group companies Siam Toppan Packaging and Majend Makcs.

Siam Toppan Packaging is a folding carton manufacturer and Majend Makcs is a manufacturer and seller of flexible packaging.  Both are Thailand-based.

Pack Print International is a packaging and printing exhibition held every other year in Bangkok. Organized by Messe Düsseldorf Asia, it showcases packaging materials and equipment as well as printing machinery for items, including food, cosmetics, personal care goods, pharmaceuticals, and industrial products. Roughly 300 companies took part in the 2017 event, which attracted more than 17,000 visitors.

This year, it will be held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) from 19 to 22 October. For packaging manufacturers, food producers, and other end users from Thailand and Southeast Asia, Toppan, Siam Toppan Packaging, and Majend Makcs will present the Toppan Group’s sustainable packaging supply capabilities and barrier packaging business centered on GL Barrier.

Demand for mono-material packaging and sustainable solutions is growing, particularly in Europe. Toppan is enhancing its sales and manufacturing network by investing proactively, leveraging development capabilities centered on GL Barrier, and taking advantage of its global network to be the best partner for multinational clients.

Thailand and Southeast Asia are hotspots for packaging demand due to the large number of manufacturing facilities run by multinational companies, and Toppan has established a network for meeting diverse customer needs by supplying high-quality products.

In addition to folding carton manufacturer Siam Toppan Packaging, Toppan acquired flexible packaging company Majend Makcs earlier this year and is growing its business to provide robust support for customers expanding across borders.

As a component of corporate social responsibility, the use of sustainable packaging is now an integral part of business for multinationals. Global demand is increasing, and Toppan is developing a network to ensure a stable supply. As a major location for supplying packaging to leading European and North American companies, operations in Thailand form a vital part of this network.

GL Barrier is a comprehensive barrier product brand with an extensive track record. Toppan develops, manufactures, and supplies barrier films that enable mono-material structures for more sustainable packaging as part of the GL Barrier lineup.

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.
