The expansion programme at the Indian trade pre-press shop, Creative Graphics shows no signs of slowing down, as it adds the Kodak Flexcel NX from Miraclon at its Mumbai plant. This latest investment is the third Flexcel NX system since 2016. The first Kodak Flexcel came to Creative’s Delhi plant.

Founded in 1998, Creative Graphics is now firmly established as a leading provider of plates (analogue, digital flexo, letterpress and coating) for a wide range of applications, including labels, flexible packaging, folding cartons and pre- and post-printed corrugated.

Continued investment in technology has been central to the Creative Graphics approach from the start, and is a major reason for the company’s significant investment in Kodak Flexcel NX. “We serve the top end of each of our markets,” says owner Deepanshu Goel. “So it’s essential we deliver consistently high quality. With Flexcel NX, we can do this. The technology offers a wide range of benefits, from high-quality halftones and smoother tonal gradations to improved solid densities and image contrast. Text is crisp, reverses sharp, and dot gain is minimal. It all adds up to excellent print quality.”

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.
