Trelleborg and INK Maloberti will display metal decorating solutions at Metpack

Trelleborg is joining forces with sector specialist manufacturers INK Maloberti and PCO Printing Chemicals, part of the Printgraph Group, at Metpack 2017, 2 – 6 May, Essen, Germany which is an hours train ride from Dusseldorf. In addition to offering a complete range of offset blanket solutions, inks and chemicals for metal decorating applications, the three companies will launch several products at the event for the international metal packaging industry.

Matthias Horn, Regional Sales Director for the EMEA market for Trelleborg’s printing solutions, says, “It’s an exciting partnership and Metpack 2017 provides the ideal platform to demonstrate how effectively our products complement each other. Technical experts from the three manufacturers work closely together to ensure complete compatibility and effectiveness between their products. Vulcan is a well established offset blanket brand in the metal decorating sector and we expect there to be a great deal of interest in our industry-leading UV blankets and the various new solutions we have for the latest energy-efficient UV technologies.”

INK Maloberti is a family-run business that has been serving metal decorating printers for the last 70 years, with around 80% of its output today going to this specific market. The company exports half of the inks made at its Milan factory and at Metpack 2017 it will show two new inks within its Sintometal thermal, UV and LE-UV ranges.

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!
