Rossini to go for expansion in 2019

At Indiaplast 2019, Rossini displayed a range of equipment at its stand. It was a well thought-out decision by the company to participate in the exhibition. The company anticipated high footfalls at its stand at the show. “Speaking on behalf of Rossini, I’d like to say that the footfalls and the customers, both new and old, coming to our stand was a treat to watch. The show provided us an exceptional networking opportunity. I’m sure we’ll participate in the show next time as well,” says Ashvin Hebbar, sales director of Rossini.

At the show, the company targetted OEMs and machine manufacturers, Indian as well as European. The company also managed to crack a few deals. Representatives of Rossini were in touch with their prospects for the last one or one-and-a-half months and at the show closed nearly seven deals. “We’re displaying all the specialized rubber rollers right from printing and lamination to transfer rollers and nip rollers. Recently, we’ve developed a new rubber compound for inking rollers. It is 20-25% toluene resistant. We’re supplying to many customers in India and our inking rollers have been a great success. Coming to the flexo side, most of the developments are happening with Rossini group in flexo because flexo is a growing industry worldwide and in India. The testament to this fact is that in this exhibition, you may see almost about two or three local Indian machine manufacturers who have built flexo machines. That speaks volumes of the trend in flexo. At the stand we have displayed the new Star Coat sleeve, the new carbon fiber carrier sleeve and the honeycoat sleeve,” Hebbar shares.

The main idea of the sleeve is to have weight reduction. The weight reduction is in the range of almost 30-40% with the newly designed sleeves from Rossini, says Hebbar.

Rossini had a successful 2018 and Rossini India has started supplying to all the South Asian countries such as Thailand, China and Singapore. The company looks to increase capacity in 2019 by adding more grinding machines at its unit. Overall, the company looks to increase its business share by 25-30% in 2019.

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.
