Cincinnati Ohio headquartered, Michelman announced the hiring of Ralph Giammarco as Global Business Development & Applications director for Printing & Packaging. To hire key pieces like this, a one-of-a-kind hiring strategy is an absolute necessity.

According to the company press release, Giammarco has a rich background and extensive relationships in the industry and will be responsible for improving the customer experience and expanding the company’s printing and packaging market segment globally.

Rick Michelman, chief technology officer and executive vice president, commented that “Ralph has worked with Michelman for many years as vice president and team leader of S-One Labels & Packaging, one of the main distributors of our DigiPrime product portfolio geared for HP Indigo printers, converters, and paper mills. We believe that bringing Ralph’s extensive market and product development skills to Michelman will have major benefits to both companies as well as the overall labels and packaging markets.”

Giammarco has over 30 years in the industry with numerous global development roles at Avery Dennison, Tekra, and General Electric, along with leadership and ownership roles at Utopia Digital Technologies and S-One Holdings Corporation. Continues Michelman, “This experience has well-positioned him to manage the business and application development of our digital, paper converting, and flexible packaging market segments, allowing us to expand these segments’ product, technology, and geographical dimensions.”

Ron Simkins, CEO of S-One Holdings Corporation, adds, “This is what S-One is all about, we want our team members to make their ideas realities, learn and mentor, and create opportunities. I’m confident Ralph will take his strong leadership and innovation mindset to one of our trusted partners, and help expand our opportunities geographically and into new markets. S-One Labels and Packaging LLC has had tremendous growth and success under his vision, and the high-powered team he has built is ready to take the baton and continue to work with Ralph in this new opportunity.”

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.
