Located in Delhi(NCR), Robus India, provides solutions and support services for paperboard and corrugated converting industry. Robus received a phenomenal response at Pamex exhibition in Mumbai. The company displayed advanced folder-gluer named RAPID (with immovable hooks technology for crash lock cartons) from equipment manufacturer, Hongjing.

“We sold seven machines and booked several orders for our equipment manufacturer Hongjing Machinery and Dayuan Machinery. We sold advanced folder gluers, die-cutters and automatic sheet lamination machines to Baddi based Universal Print-O-Pack, Haryana’s NG Packaging, Noida’s P K Enterprises, Unity Offset in Bengaluru, and a Chennai based company among others ,” said Abhinav Gupta and Prem P Vishwakarma,directors of Robus India.

Hongjing’s advance folder-gluer enhances speed while reducing wastage. It is a hookless machine and can run crash lock-bottom cartons at 350 metres per minute and straight-line cartons at 450 metres per minute. The machine increases production upto 40%, reduces wastage considerably and enables quick job setting.The directors believe that the company has a variety of finishing solutions for customers from the packaging business.

“Last year, we had 40 installations in India. We have a strong clientele in North India. We received some orders from the South at Pamex and now hope to expand our operations to South India as well. We are looking ahead to achieve more than the last year,” they added. “We are channel partners for Hongjing and Dayuan. We have brought folder-gluers in India from Hongjing and automatic die cutters from Dayuan,”

After a successful stint at the India Corr Expo, this is the second time in 2017 that the company managed to attract visitors. They now look forward to reach out to more clients across Pan India.

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