Flint Group Packaging is excited to announce its participation at the FTA Infoflex event on 14-15 March in Fort Worth, Texas. The company’s flexible packaging, paper and board, and narrow web teams will be onsite to meet with customers at stand 414 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Nicki Kerrigan, vice-president and general manager for Flint Group Flexible Packaging explains, “In our dynamic package printing market, printers may look to their vendors for support related to areas such as sustainability and simplification, and innovations designed for cutting edge printing systems and techniques. Our teams focus on reducing complexity and improving processes – and, more importantly, we can help our customers become more sustainable.

“At Infoflex, we are excited to discuss our extensive range of ink and coating technologies that drive value for packaging and label printers and to share insight on where real process opportunities lie. Our teams understand today’s print challenges and requirements – and by exhibiting, in person, at Infoflex, we have a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our passion and drive to help printers navigate through the critical topics facing them today.”

Innovation on display during the event will include inks and coatings for flexible packaging, paper and board and narrow web labels. The company’s sustainable offerings will be a focal point of discussion. TerraCode, for water-based package printing, and sustainable evolution ink, coating and primer range for narrow web labels, has been specially formulated to address rising market and consumer demand for a circular economy in packaging.
Visitors to Infoflex can learn more about Flint Group Packaging’s expertise in color management, including consistency across substrates and spot colors. Supporting its growing portfolio of customers, the business is eager to discuss Vivo Colour Solutions, a unique tool designed to increase converters’ color accuracy and press uptime and reduce substrate and ink waste.

Kerrigan concluded, “We look forward to meeting face to face and demonstrating how our teams are well-positioned to help customers, as we highlight our suite of services and our wide range of inks and coatings for packaging and labels.”

 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
