San Diego California headquartered supplier of inkjet technology announced in the last week of April that it has hired Bent Serritslev as senior vice president of business development in the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). Serritslev will oversee sales and marketing activities designed to expand the adoption of Memjet technology among (OEM) partners in the region.

“The appointment of Serritslev continues Memjet’s momentum in the Asia-Pacific market,” said Len Lauer, chief executive officer at Memjet. “Last year, at the All in Print China Conference, Memjet announced DuraLink partnerships with Shanghai UPG International Trading Co. Ltd. (UP Group) and Liaoning Zheng Hong Basch (Basch). This year, with Bent as part of our team, we will be announcing more OEM partners in the region and expand the number of Memjet-powered printing solutions that bring the speed, quality and affordability needed to succeed in the competitive APAC market.”

Before joining Memjet, Serritslev was managing director for Xeikon Asia-Pacific. Previously, he was managing director of Heidelberg Malaysia and before that managing director of EACgraphics India, the company that was the forerunner of Heidelberg India. “In my career, I have witnessed the evolution of the printing industry and the expansion and dynamics of the APAC market,” said Serritslev. “No matter how the market changes, one thing remains the same – the enduring power of strong customer relationships. At Memjet, I look forward to establishing connections and fostering productive working relationships that enable OEM partners to grow today and well into the future.”

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.
