Agra-based packaging box manufacturer Perfect Packers has solidified its commitment to operational excellence with the recent signing of a deal to acquire a DGM TechnoCut 1050S die cutter. The announcement was made during the Pamex 2024 show in Mumbai from February 6-9. 

Specializing in the printing and conversion of boxes for major footwear companies, Perfect Packers has established itself as an important player in the industry, catering to clients across India and international markets such as Kenya, Thailand, and Bangladesh.

Ankur Mahajan, partner at Perfect Packers, expressed enthusiasm about the investment in the DGM TechnoCut 1050S die cutter. “This is our first DGM machine, and we hope to increase our efficiency in the converting department with the new TechnoCut. We have manual operations and with the new die cutter, we should be able to reduce manual intervention and enhance productivity, ultimately reducing wastages.”

Mahajan shared insights into the company’s future investment plans. “In addition to the DGM TechnoCut, we plan to invest in a flute laminator and a rigid box making machine. These strategic investments align with our vision of staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the packaging industry.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
