Esko, India’s largest packaging prepress and flexographic plate provider, has expanded in the past three years with its new full-fledged plant in Mumbai and the acquisition earlier this year of Color Dot, one of the oldest flexo trade shops in the country.

Creative Graphics has renamed its wholly owned Chennai acquisition Tanushii, although the clients, human resources and the location remain the same. Tanushii was already a company with an excellent reputation and a user of Esko Packedge, Plato and Automation Engine software. Now, as a part of its rapid modernization and integration in the Creative Graphics group, Esko’s Imaging engine and a new Esko CDI Spark 4260 and HD Flexo for digital imaging of flexo plates at the highest quality possible have been installed.

According to Karan Talwar of Esko, “Creative Graphics investment in replication of processes and the purchase of a third Esko Spark with HD Flexo in a third location shows great confidence in Esko and is a huge endorsement of our products and our team.” The addition of Esko’s imaging engine software and the new Esko CDI Spark and HD Flexo digital imager mean that Creative Graphics plants in Noida, Mumbai and Chennai all use the same software and hardware. This complete replication of technology levels and hardware across all locations means that the company can standardize its processes across all its locations and meet the instant and immediate needs of brand owners and packaging suppliers in the North, West and South of the country with ease.

Brand owners stand to benefit from the high quality standardization of their packaging across regions. Key to this is that they can specify prepress and flexo plates to be procured from a single qualified and HD Flexo certified supplier who has production facilities in all regions. The use of standardized prepress and digital imaged flexo plates can go a long way in specifying the quality expectations and tolerances from packaging printers and converters.

Creative Graphics and Tanushii owner Deepanshu Goel says, “Not only can we help brand owners and converters in achieving uniform quality across all their packaging in the entire country, but we are also offering our employees across all locations the same opportunity to achieve the same quality and success.” At the same time, packaging suppliers can be systematically developed using standardized inputs and parameters and eventually, high quality packaging will look the same and reinforce the brand no matter where in the country it is seen on the shelf.

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.
