On 1 June 2019, Koenig & Bauer announced that its sales and service responsibility for products of the core business units in the Turkish market has been passed to Koenig & Bauer Duran. The decision was followed by the acquisition of Duran’s folding carton business by Koenig & Bauer. It offers existing users and prospective customers of Koenig & Bauer sheetfed and web presses, rotary or flatbed die-cutters and other products and services closer and direct access to the manufacturer.

Tolgahan Toskaya, a specialist in the Turkish print industry, was appointed for the position of general manager with responsibility for sales and service, Koenig & Bauer Duran. The local sales and service teams remain under the leadership of Rolf Köhle and Can Zümrüt, respectively, while staff members are moved to Koenig & Bauer Duran. The sales and service offices were accommodated at the Koenig & Bauer Duran premises in Istanbul.

The objective for expanding sales responsibilities to Koenig & Bauer Duran was to become a market leader in Turkey. The company reports that the major international packaging groups have installed Rapida presses in their Turkish plants. Large-format Rapidas are reported to be the key means of production in Turkish companies such as Barem Ambalaj, Camis Ambalaj, Duran-Dogan, Omkasan and Kombassan. For two years, Turkey has been one of the ten most important markets for sheetfed offset presses for Koenig & Bauer.

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.
