Since 2016, Surat-based Weepac has been manufacturing packaging cartons that would use paper board and plastic. The company has invested in some state-of-the-art equipment in its converting and postpress division, and is now embarking on a drive to modernize its press section which has two pre-owned offset presses. It will soon invest in a brand new 6-color with coater offset press. In addition to upgrading its physical infrastructure, Weepac is also aggressive investing in human capital and focusing on marketing activities by visiting and participating in big trade events.

After successfully visiting Gulfood 2017, Weepac made its debut at the recently concluded Plastindia 2018 and displayed a variety of packaging cartons that it can offer to customers.

“Plastindia is one of India’s premier shows for packaging and plastics industry and as first-time participants, we have nothing to complain about. We got to meet many potential customers. We focused on meeting visitors from textiles and cosmetics industry,” says Naimesh Naik, partner, Weepac.

The next event where Weepac will promote and market its solutions will be the upcoming Gulfood 2018, which takes place in Dubai from 18-22 February. This will be the second time when Naik will be visiting Gulfood and it shows Weepac’s focus on the markets in the Middle East region.

“Weepac considers Middle East as a very important market. We received excellent response during Gulfood 2017, and in the last one year we have built on the contacts we madePlastIndia logo 1 there. Now we know a lot of people in the region and we expect to have a good time at Gulfood 2018 as well,” Naik shares.

Weepac would be meeting companies such as Bateel and Saifa Dates, among others at Gulfood 2018.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
