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.

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!
