SCHOTT KAISHA

Starting this month, leading pharmaceutical packaging company, SCHOTT KAISHA will host a roadshow in five Indian cities—Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad—to ensure that its customers are up to date with industry trends and best practices. The Indo-German joint venture aims to promote optimal process-driven technologies and their impact on Type 1 primary packaging glass containers for life saving drugs.

To be held over 2 weeks, the roadshow will provide customers and potential partners key insights into the manufacturing process of primary pharma packaging, the advanced technology SCHOTT KAISHA uses and the impact that this technology has on the container during the conversion process. This will give participants a clear understanding on the importance of conversion process in tubular glass manufacturing. In addition, the event shall also showcase SCHOTT KAISHA’s upcoming product portfolio, tailor-made design and development capabilities.

Rishad Dadachanji, director, SCHOTT KAISHA shares, “We have always believed in not finding customers for our products, but in finding products for customers. This is only possible by following an inclusive growth strategy by developing technologies in collaboration with our partners. That is why we have always worked with our partners to ensure product compatibility between their solutions and ours. The roadshow is, thus, not only a platform to bring us closer, but also an opportunity for our partners to showcase unique solutions available with them.”

It is for the first time that a pharma packaging company is taking such a grand initiative to bring together a wide array of customers from all functions (including FR&D, Packaging Development, Production, Quality and Procurement) under one roof in multiple cities over a short period of time. Moreover, SCHOTT KAISHA will be hosting industry partners such as ACE Technologies, Aptar Pharma, Datwyler, Kaisha Lifesciences, Nemera, Packwell Industries, Shakai Packaging Pvt. Ltd., Smart Skin Technologies, Snowbell Machines Pvt. Ltd., Sovereign Pharma Pvt. Ltd. and Vanrx Pharmasystems Inc.

SCHOTT KAISHA has always given preference to a ‘quality by design’ approach, benchmark manufacturing and quality control processes using breakthrough inspection technology, combined with best-in-class components. With India being a lucrative generics market expected to grow by 30% and reach US$ 20 billion by 2020, it has considerable potential for collaborative and outsourced R&D in drug development, biotechnology, chemicals, and manufacturing of medicinal products. This makes initiatives such as the SCHOTT KAISHA roadshow even more pertinent for a holistic growth of all partners in the pharma packaging value chain.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
