With over 20 years of flexo prepress expertise, Veepee Graphic Solutions are technocrats with a keen eye for quality and growth. With multiple investments over the years in flexo prepress technology, Veepee has now chosen to invest in the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Wide 4260 System with KODAK Prinergy Screening Tower.

Talking about the investment, Jaichandra, director at Veepee Graphic Solutions said, “We have been aware of KODAK FLEXCEL NX technology since its introduction. With growing market demand for high-quality flexo plates and faster turnarounds in a competitive environment, we chose the FLEXCEL NX System to deliver quality with excellent productivity. Bundled with the Prinergy Screening Tower, we have a lot to explore in terms of technology. We wish to utilize the benefits of these technologies to the fullest. This is in line with our constant endeavor to stay ahead of the curve, appeal to a wider market and give our customers the best.”

Sandor Meszaros, regional sales leader for Kodak’s Flexographic Packaging Division in Asia-Pacific says, “We are happy to announce that Veepee Graphic Solutions have put their trust in FLEXCEL NX System to grow their flexo plate-making business. They are one of India’s most innovative flexo prepress houses, and it’s exciting to partner with them as they push the envelope of flexo plate-making to newer heights.”

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.
