Pune-based K Joshi and Company has signed a deal to buy a Bobst Visionfold 110 folder-gluer. The deal was announced by the two parties on the third day of Printpack 2019. This will be the first Bobst folder gluer at K Joshi and Company.

K Joshi and Company is into commercial printing as well as into printing packaging cartons. This move to buy a brand new Visionfold 110 folder-gluer will enable the company to take up high quality packaging carton jobs, says Anil Joshi of K Joshi and Company.

“We were looking for a company which can offer high level of reliability and lasting peace of mind when it comes to after-sales service. Buying a Bobst machine involves big investment but we decided to go ahead with that decision,” Joshi says.

K Joshi and Company is looking to further expand into the carton packaging segment but wants to focus on only premium jobs. “Right from the onset, we decided that we will not chase volumes and focus on high value customers and niche jobs,” he adds.

The new Bobst Visionfold 110 folder-gluer is expected to be commissioned by end-March.

Commenting on the development, Venugopal Menon of Bobst India says, “K Joshi and Company want to expand further into the packaging segment and were looking for a versatile and flexible machine which is capable of processing various designs of boxes.”

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.
