Goppingen, Germany based Hinderer + mühlich is the leading worldwide manufacturer of stamping dies for the graphic and plastic industry. The company is a member of the Kurz Foil Group, a worldwide manufacturer of stamping foils. Kurz Group has been present in India for many years now. In the graphics space, it caters to industries such as labels, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, print, etc. The company participated at the recently concluded PrintPack 2017 for the first time and talked about the solutions it offers. The company has manufacturing plants in Germany, USA, France, Switzerland and China. It has recently opened a plant in Delhi, India to cater to the Indian market.

“We noticed that demand for quality in the packaging industry has been steadily growing. This was the primary reason for setting up a manufacturing plant in India,” says Martina Hahn-Rodig, sales manager, ASPAC & Americas. She adds that the company is working in India with the same machines and raw materials that it uses globally. “This is to ensure that we have same quality standard all over the world.”

In India, to begin with, Hinderer + mühlich will make dies for the graphics industry only. It wants to first make a thorough analysis of the Indian market before expanding into the plastics industry.

Commenting on the response received at PrintPack 2017, she said that it was much better than she had expected. “Some top customers from India have visited our stand and we have also managed to get some promising leads.”

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.
