India’s leading winning-edge solutions provider for the printing and packaging industry, Monotech Systems, has sold the first Focus Proflex E press to Mumbai based Glamod Techno Labels. The deal was finalized at the ongoing drupa in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Proflex (eVersion) flexo press is the latest offering from Focus Label Machinery, UK and was recently launched in Labelexpo Europe 2015. The latest Proflex range of modular printing presses are available with Servo drive technology (Se version) or line shaft (eVersion). The new drop in cylinders ensure fast set up and consistent quality printing throughout the press speed. Combination drying systems for labels, tickets and board, with IR, UV, led UV including chill rolls for unsupported films make the Proflex range the right choice for narrow web printing at a sensible investment level.

Glamod Techno Labels is a new company formed after the merger of Glamour Graphics and Modern Printing Industries, both from Mumbai where the first company was a leading provider of prepress services and the other one has the expertise of commercial printing and manufacturing of all types of self-adhesive rotary printed labels for pharma and cosmetics.

Deepak R Bedi of Glamod Techno Labels, says, “Printing today requires the ability and confidence to serve a wide range of markets. The ability to produce small volumes balanced with high productivity, cost-efficient operation and versatility while maintaining key elements of quality are essential. Considering these, we are happy to have Focus Proflex as a great value addition to our production portfolio. We have been associated with Monotech Systems for long and have basysPrint UV CtP systems at our company. The other advantage of having Focus is that it is being offered in India by Monotech Systems which has a good brand value, reputation and excellent technical support.”

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.
