Parksons Packaging has signed up with Komori’s flagship product GX 740+C – a 7-color plus coater. The 18,000 sph press will come with full options of color management and color inspection and state-of-theart Komori technologies, which will raise the bar on productivity and high precision quality control inspection system inline.

Sangam Khanna, president and managing director of Insight Communications and Print Solutions said, “Komori is very happy with opening a new leaf with Parksons Packaging and this is our second order from Parksons and Insight and Komori will depute extra efforts in packaging support to meet the growing demands of the customer’s customer.”

Toshiyasu Kubotera, general manager for exports in the Asian, Oceania and Latin American countries at Komori added, “We are ever eager to listen to our customers. The Indian customers are really well-informed and need more technology as we feel packaging
is here to stay and has good growth prospects in India (approximately 8% per annum) and packaging companies need to address the ever growing and high demand of customers and keep investing in newer technologies.” Komori plans to build strong technical assistance in the field of packaging in India and is committed to doing so from this financial year.

Komori director Masaru Tsukamoto also emphasized that Komori maintains a strong focus on the Indian market and hopes to start sending highly skilled staff from Japan every alternate month for better customer support. “Komori has the world’s best graphic centre
with eight machines lined up in Japan and offers courses in printing. So far many of our customers have benefited from this in terms of their productivity and quality in India and
around the world. We welcome our customers to use these facilities to enhance their quality, productivity and skill levels,” he concluded.

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.
