David Weber, Flex-Punkt Managing director and Udo Theus, Senior Sales manager at Hell Gravure System

Flex-Punkt has been working continuously for many years to optimize its products and service offerings in terms of sustainability, resource efficiency, delivery capability, and quality. In doing so, the prepress company based in Melle in the district of Osnabrück focuses specifically on innovations and invests above average in new technologies and digital infrastructure. 

Flex-Punkt produces around 11,500 flexo sleeves annually, 8,500 of which are for flexible packaging printing and 3,000 for the tissue and decor sector. Flex-Punkt’s steady and sustainable growth is also reflected in the number of employees, which has now grown to over 50. In August 2020, the company decided to build an 850 square meter laser center, which was recently occupied. This now provides sufficient space for the installation of new machines to improve performance and expand the portfolio. 

Hell Gravure Systems has played a part in the continued successful development of Flex-Punkt. The two companies have been working together for 20 years in a very fruitful and trusting relationship. As early as 2001, Flex-Punkt carried out the beta test for the first laser engraving system from Hell. Currently, elastomer and photopolymer sleeves and plates are produced with five direct lasers and two LAMS lasers from Hell.

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.
