Taiwan’s KYMC establishes stronger presence in Philippines

KYMC partners with Ideal Marketing & Manufacturing Corporation


Taiwan-based KYMC is working to establish a stronger presence in the South-East Asian region. The company is optimistic about countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. In 2017, KYMC started adding resources into helping these regions. According to KYMC, its goal is to have a strong footprint in these countries by serving the needs of the region.

In the Philippines, KYMC had partnered up with a local player, Ideal Marketing & Manufacturing Corporation, to serve the market. The company already has a history of strong presence in the region. On top of the company’s abundance of experience in the printing and converting industry, it believes that its customers will be well represented by them.

On 29 March 2019, KYMC held an open house in the Philippines, where a seminar was held in conjunction with a press demonstration at its client’s factory. The seminar was organized into two sections, with the first focusing on environmental topics and industry trends. The second section focused on KYMC’s capabilities to support its customers through case studies by sharing how it supported public traded companies to cut cost and increase production efficiencies to remain competitive on the market. The section also highlighted how KYMC worked with its customers even long before the purchase of the machines to ensure the customers’ needs were addressed and fulfilled.

During the press demonstration at the client’s factory, two print jobs were demonstrated. One job was conducted on coated paper, and the other on BOPP film. The changeover time was completed under 5 minutes, with a total wastage of less than 50 meters during the setup, and had the press running at 400 meter per minute under tight registration accuracy. A Starbuck’s coffee paper cup supplier said, “I am surprised by how fast the KYMC press is able to align its registration.” A supplier of Jollibee, Philippines’ largest fast-food chain restaurant said, “I am impressed at the amount of experience that KYMC has in helping customers switch from the rotogravure process over to the flexo production process successfully, and how far KYMC is willing to go in helping its customers.”

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.
