Janus International, a leading provider of packaging and labeling solutions in India, has boosted its printer fleet with the new HP Indigo 6900 Digital Press. With the HP Indigo 6900, Janus International can print a variety of packaging options at any run-length. At the same time, variable data printing helps the company personalize packaging as well as incorporate security features.

Janus International provides printing solutions to a range of industries, including the alcohol beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors. The company has relied on the print quality of HP Indigo for more than 11 years.

Today, the HP Indigo is allowing Janus to offer customers options such as shrink sleeves, cartons, pouches and in-mould labels. The upgrade has also enhanced Janus’ capabilities to address the requirements of a wider variety of brands, including small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) clients, for fast short-run production and packaging.

Conventional printing processes can be prohibitively expensive for brands with low-volume orders – a real issue if you’re a small business or cash-strapped start-up,” says Denver Annunciation, director, Janus International. “The HP Indigo 6900 Digital Press allows us to meet our SME clients’ needs without the constraints of minimum-order quantities.” This approach also means Janus’ customers benefit from a quicker turnaround. “Digital printing is the future and HP Indigo sure is playing its part in making it a great one!” Annunciation says.

In business for over 25 years, Janus International is a family-owned and operated company founded by Joe Annunciation in India. Second-generation leader Denver Annunciation took the decision to move into digital printing in 2009, driving business by adopting the latest printing industry technology.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
