This includes the entire range of services offered by the foundry in Amstetten, which with a capacity of up to 85,000 tons of castings is one of the most efficient in Europe. In the field of mechanical processing, Heidelberg offers individual parts, small batches, series production, or customized production solutions as a highly qualified partner. In the company’s assembly department, mechanical products or complex assemblies, including electronic components and optimized processes, are offered from a single source. To this end, Heidelberg industrializes and assembles customers’ products as a system provider and supplements this assembly service with other modules such as logistics services, service, and spare parts management. For the growth segment of electronics, tailor-made control, and power electronics as well as automation solutions – from the assembly of printed circuit boards to the construction of complex devices and systems – are available.

“With the industrial customer business, we are increasingly establishing Heidelberg with its comprehensive technological competencies in new growth markets,” said Ludwin Monz, chief executive officer of Heidelberg. “In this way, we are also making our technological expertise available in a targeted manner for new markets outside the print industry.”

disruptions to international supply chains, more and more companies are looking at ways to shift their supply chains to more local solutions. For European production sites, for example, this means reviewing further relocations or reverse relocations from Eastern Europe. This would then also have a positive impact on the CO2 footprint. Heidelberg is also noticing this trend among third-party customers in the industrial customer business with increased demand in the foundry field, for example. Heidelberg benefits from this by offering the manufacture or production of sophisticated castings.

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
