Cortec Corporation, a global player in VpCI /MCI corrosion-control technologies, has announced its acquisition of Cortec Southeast Asia’s (CSEA) offices in Singapore. CSEA is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Cortec Corporation.

This development promises to improve service and customer support in Southeast Asia due to a direct connection with Cortec’s headquarters in Saint Paul, Minnesota. 

Since January 2019, CSEA has been a partner and distribution hub for Cortec products and services in Southeast Asia, serving the markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei, and Indonesia.

Cortec’s CSEA acquisition will take that tradition to a new level of real-time product and service responsiveness when the transition is complete.

Cortec looks forward to completing the full transition in upcoming months, when improved inventory responsiveness will equip CSEA for better customer service and an expanded presence in the Southeast Asia region. 

 Cortec CEO, Boris Miksic, stated, “The acquisition of Cortec SEA in Singapore is an important step forward for our Group by expanding logistics and technical support to the distribution network in Asia and Australia.” Miksic founded Cortec 45 years ago and has watched it grow from a rust preventative startup at his home in Minnesota into a multinational entity with offices based in the US, Canada, Europe, and now Singapore.

Cortec  Corporation provides innovative, environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI  corrosion control technologies. It seeks to deliver cost-effective, user-friendly integrated solutions for corrosion problems in packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, oil and gas, and many other industries.

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!
