Highcon and Sun Digital announce distribution partnership in Mexico.

Highcon Systems today announced the appointment of Sun Digital as a distributor in Mexico for its full range of digital cutting and creasing solutions for folding cartons and corrugated industries.

Based in Mexico City, Sun Digital has over 50 years of experience in providing digital and conventional printing solutions to the graphic arts industry. It is also the largest HP Indigo channel partner in Mexico, supplying the highest quality equipment and consumables to hundreds of printers and converters.

Highcon’s vice-president of sales for the Americas, Mike Ciaramella, explained that Sun Digital is the ideal partner for Highcon’s customers due to its well-established distribution network, broad product offering and experienced sales and technical teams. “We are delighted to partner with a trusted company that can offer the best possible service to our customers. We look forward to working together to develop our customer base in this important market.”  

Ricardo del Castilo, president of Sun Digital, said that the new distribution partnership complements the company’s own digital offerings. He stated, “We have built our business and reputation by providing reliable service and by partnering with leading companies that support our customers in their developments and innovations,” he said. “Highcon’s products are likely to generate great interest from printers and converters who seek to become more digitalized focused and take advantage of the exponential growth of eCommerce.”

As part of the agreement, Sun Digital will sell, supply and support Highcon’s portfolio of digital die-cutting and creasing solutions for folding carton and corrugated converting, including the Highcon Beam 2C non-stop configuration, the Highcon Euclid 5C for corrugated packaging, and the Highcon Beam 2 and Highcon Euclid 5 for folding cartons. Key features of Highcon’s digital finishing technology are creasing, laser cutting and stripping systems. This technology facilitates digitally-driven physical creasing by applying 3D printed rules. Creasing, cutting, and stripping are all performed on one single platform, in one pass, at high speed, eliminating the need for die-cutting and stripping tools.

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.
