Ghaziabad-based Venus Thermal Lamination Film showcased its innovative range of packaging and lamination applications at Pamex Mumbai. This was the maiden show in India’s western market for the company, which expects new sales inquiries and looks to expand its customer base.

Prakash Dabral, GM for sales and marketing, said the company had previously participated in only NCR-based packaging exhibitions to date and Pamex was a new step. “We were keen on a greater footfall like at any Delhi-based exhibition. We exhibited metalized and thermal lamination film, flexible packaging, coated polyester film, glitter powder metalized yarn, hot stamping foil, metalized paper, and tinsel garland.”

The surface of Venus’ films is extrusion-coated with low temperature melting resin, which enables the lamination of film and paper products by heat and pressure. According to Dabral, Venus is involved in multiple processes – gloss, matte, silk, and velvet thermal films for BOPP; gold, silver, 3D, holographic, and glitter for PET; manufacturing of color and digital thermal films; and A4 lamination pouches.

“Our prime focus is to manufacture quality products and to ensure compliance with total quality management guidelines. During all production stages, right from the sourcing of basic materials to the shipment of goods, we stringently stick to quality assurance norms. The entire quality control procedures are checked by our in-house quality assurance and control unit,” Dabral said.

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.
