On 17 January 2018, in Faridabad in the Delhi NCR a joint venture agreement was signed between NBG Printographic Machinery Company and Webtech Engineering to form a joint venture to manufacture and promote flexo label presses under one entity. NBG has developed a fully servo flexo label press and Webtech has been shipping its flexo label presses for the last several years.

With the new JV in place, customers should get a range of label printing and converting solutions under one roof. With their combined resources in development, manufacturing and service under a single joint entity, customers can expect a better range of solutions and more comprehensive and timely service. Under the agreement, NBG Printographic Machinery Company, would be handling complete marketing and sales activities of the JV and Webtech would be handling the manufacturing of top loading flexo presses while NBG would continue to produce its new servo driven presses. Both the companies would work together for launching advanced label solutions in the future.

Dr SK Garg, managing director of NBG Printographic Machinery Company, said “We have more than 30 years of experience in printing machinery with our presence across India and in 25 countries. We have been working in packaging and labels for 5 years and we believe this JV would add value to our product line and give customers better products and service.” Sabhajeet Singh of Webtech added, “Looking at the upcoming demand for quality flexo presses, this JV would enable our companies to invest in research and development of advanced and international standard machines in India and thus giving ‘Make in India’ concept a boost.”

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.
