At Printpack 2015, Sergusa Solutions, a sister concern of SLKCG, showcased MIS solutions and inspection systems from Solprint of UK, box making machines from Fuchu Shiko of Japan and inspection systems from Beijing Daheng Image Vision of China. Jaideep Kulkarni, director of SL Kulkarni Cyril Graphics told that with all the principals present at its
stand in Printpack, it will be a brilliant opportunity to interact with new customers and increase awareness of the entire range of products and solutions it is presenting to the Indian market.

Japanese automated rigid boxes and semi-automated rigid box making machine manufacturer Fuchu Shiko has over 500 installations in Japan and has already installed about 10 machines in India. Ricky Chan, project manager of Fuchu Shiko while speaking to Packaging South Asia said, “Fuchu Shiko has more than 55 years of experience and we know the pulse of boxmakers since we are one ourselves. Our machines are very easy to use and customizable. Apart from India, we are also focusing on the Koreanand Chinese markets. We opened our factory in Shanghai in China in 2005. Our quality and speed will ensure that we can take on our competition.”

Peter Griffin, managing director of Solprint while explaining the salient features of its end to-end management information system (MIS) software solution said, “Our software is a complete workflow which is completely modular. The Indian market is maturing and thus we see great potential for growth. We already are an established player in the UK with about 23 years of experience and can attend to all the software needs of a packaging or even a publishing company which is multi-located.”

It was the first time that Beijing Daheng was participating in an Indian exhibition. It is still a new company in the Indian market with their range of inspection systems and have so far installed two machines at ITC Chennai and have received an order of another four from TCPL Packaging. Pan Jin, general manager of Beijing Daheng said, “With our vastrange of inspection systems, we are sure that we can meet the expectations of the entire industry. We are optimistic about receiving a good response.”

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.
