An amalgation of great support system and professional conduct

IPM customer's review on robotic plasma coating

Dinesh Gupta with his brother Sanjay Gupta, founders of Paragon Packaging - customers of IPM.

Printpack presents a unique opportunity for exhibitors to interact with their existing customers while offering a chance to meet prospective customers. While visiting the Industrial Processors and Metallizers’ (IPM) stand Indian Printer and Publisher met the company’s customer who was glad to share his experience of working with IPM.

Dinesh Gupta and Sanjay Gupta, founders of Paragon Packaging based in Faridabad have been in the printing industry for almost 20 years. The company is also into monocartons business. This, along with its corrugation business has helped the company reap huge dividends over a period of time. Dinesh Gupta says, “Printing is a challenging industry; it keeps you on your toes. However, it encourages me to work harder everyday. Maintanance of machines in such a dynamic environment is highly important for which I’m thankful to IPM. I was impressed by the professional conduct of the team. IPM’s technical team visited our Faridabad unit and I spoke to Rahul Sood, the managing director of IPM, regarding the servicing aspect of my machines. I felt confident after talking to him and placed an order for repairing my 6-color KBA press. It was great to have his support. IPM provided robotic plasma coating on six of our plate cylinders and delivered them in a condition that exceeded our expectations.”

Talking about the current condition of his machine, Gupta says, “The machine is doing very well even after three years of the service. IPM took every possible care of our cylinders and their handling was phenomenal as well. In fact, I just spoke with Surbhi Sood, for servicing another one of my machines.”

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 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.
