TechNova, India’s leading technology pioneer and manufacturer of a full range of offset and digital printing solutions, is Esko’s new reseller in India. TechNova, a well-known name in the Indian Graphic Arts industry, has its presence in almost all print segments with sales offices in almost all the major cities and they have the widest distribution network in the industry.

TechNova, headquartered in Taloja, Maharashtra, will be promoting Esko’s software and hardware solution in the offset folding carton segment. Esko’s product portfolio supports and manages the packaging and print processes at brand owners, retailers, designers, packaging manufacturers and print service providers. TechNova has a strong base of packaging manufacturers with their complete range of digital plate products, CtP solutions, and green consumables.

Pranav Parikh, chairman and managing director of Technova says, “It comes as a natural synergy between our two organizations. With Esko’s leadership position in packaging prepress integrated with TechNova’s wide range of CtP solutions, plates, chemicals and digital printing solutions, it will complete the entire prepress workflow. There is a huge pressure from brand owners on packaging converters to eliminate errors, produce the right colors, and reduce cost while demanding shorter time to market. We believe that with Esko’s addition to TechNova’s portfolio we can address all of these concerns and be the preferred choice of any packaging converter for their prepress requirements.”

John Winderam, general manager of Esko says, “Esko values our new partnership with TechNova highly and we’re very excited to see the tremendous growth potential in this offset folding carton segment. TechNova can always count on us at Esko as their most trusted partner.”

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.
