DSM Engineering Plastics changes name to DSM Engineering Materials

To emphasize specialty materials portfolio and expertise

DSM Engineering Plastics changes to DSM Engineering Materials

Effective 1 April 2020, DSM Engineering Plastics has changed its business group name into DSM Engineering Materials. With its new business group name, the company would like to emphasize the broad character of its specialty materials portfolio and expertise. Additionally, it brings better expression to its advanced materials engineering capabilities and know-how.

The company is grounded in a strong heritage in servicing the needs of its customers. It will continue to rely on its proven industry leadership and expertise in advanced materials, and market-focused research to bring innovative solutions to our customers, just like in the past.

DSM Engineering Materials is a comprehensive total solution strategic partner and leader in sustainability. Recently, the company announced that it will offer a full alternative range of its existing portfolio based on bio- and/or recycled-based engineering materials by 2030. In this way, it is taking the next step in its sustainability journey in alignment with DSM’s purpose-led performance-driven strategy, enabling a circular and bio-based economy.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
