At the PackPlus 2016 exhibition in Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, Kody Equipment showed its new Nuzen S737 slitter rewinder designed to slit and wind at speeds up to 450 meters a minute. “The S737 is designed to slit and wind at a speed up to 450 metres a minute,” said Jashwant Panchal of Kody Equipment. The model has a working width of 1,300 mm, an unwind diameter of 1,100 mm to 1,300 mm, and a rewind diameter of 600 mm. “The slitter-rewinder is getting a good response at PackPlus and we have met some serious customers at our stand who are interested in the machine,” says Panchal. Kody is a regular exhibitor at PackPlus. “PackPlus has always been a good platform for us to participate in,” he says.

According to Panchal, Kody recorded a growth of 25 to 30% in the last financial year. “The market is getting back into shape unlike 2013 and we are quite optimistic about closing this financial year with more excitement and business deals.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
