Michael Tachol, sales manager of SPG Prints and Ranesh Bajaj of Vinsak announced the new alliance for supplying prepress equipment

At the Printpack 2019 show in Greater Noida, Vinsak announced its new alliance with SPG Prints. Michael Tschol of SPG Prints was present at the Vinsak stand during the show. Austria-based SPG Prints is represented by its sister concern in India named Stovec Industries in Ahmedabad. The Austrian company has a special position in the group for being the most competent part of the group offering prepress equipment.

Our focus is wider than just the label business. We with our prepress portfolio fit perfectly to Vinsak’s processes. With this alliance, we will jointly offer prepress solutions to the customers along with the press and postpress that Vinsak already offers. We believe this alliance gives both the companies a win-win situation. And with Vinsak’s reach in India, we hope to market our products better and reach out to a wide customer base throughout the country,” Tschol says.

SPG first contacted Ranesh Bajaj of Vinsak during Labelexpo India 2018 in November. The actual deal came through shortly before the Printpack exhibition. Bajaj says that the company is very excited about the deal.

SPG has a wider product portfolio which hopefully will help us supply to the market soon. We were delivering press and postpress equipment to our customers earlier but with this deal, we will be able to cover the entire spectrum of the printing process with prepress, press and postpress equipment.

We already have a team which is trained for the new system. And we hope in the coming weeks we crack some deals with a few companies. We’re extremely optimistic and are waiting to get in touch with the media soon again to make a sale public,” says Bajaj.

At its stand at Printpack 2019, Vinsak is displaying the Lombardi 430 8-color press which has already been sold, the announcement about which will be done on Day 3 of the show in the presence of the customer. The company is also displaying the Vinsak USAR machine with a 100% camera inspection system. Additionally, the company is showcasing its pile turner and its new and upgraded slitter rewinder, the Vinsak TTR, which was launched at Labelexpo India 2018 in Greater Noida.

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 grown 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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
