Michael Wang appointed as managing director of Rotocon Asia

Honor to lead the Rotocon Asia subsidiary

Pascal Aengenvoort, Michael Aengenvoort, Michael Wang, and Patrick Aengenvoort at the ROTOCONTROL open house in Siek, Germany.

Rotocon began working with Wang in 2013 to develop an economy line of finishing equipment that meets the technology investment needs of balancing the highest possible specifications with competitive pricing. Since then, the Ecoline brand has grown to encompass seven systems of slitter/rewinders with inspection, and ultrasonic anilox roller cleaner, a plate mounter, and a cost-efficient flexographic printing press.

“From the very beginning of our interactions, Michael Wang was always open to finding ways to customize and optimize the ecoline machines to meet our design goals and incorporate customer feedback,” said Michael Aengenvoort.

“Over the years, we formed a strong partnership built on trust, which is especially important when doing business in different continents and cultures. Appointing Michael Wang to lead our Rotocon Asia subsidiary was a logical decision.”

The ecoline machines are produced in the China–Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) area, where Wang resides and oversees design changes and production. The area boasts many large high-tech global corporations and Fortune 500 companies. Two high-speed railways and proximity to the sea provide advantages in shipping freight.

Every ecoline slitter/rewinder and press has a compact footprint, easy-to-use control panel and open machine design to maximize operator friendliness. A modem for remote fault finding and maintenance allows Rotocon to respond quickly to operators’ software and drive-related queries.

According to Wang, he views his many years of living in Canada as a significant benefit to his partnership with Rotocon. “Living in a westernized country taught me how to bridge differences between cultures and maintain open communication, which I believe helped foster the open and trusting partnership Rotocon and I share today,” he said. “It’s an honour to now lead the Rotocon Asia subsidiary.”

Michael Aengenvoort, Pascal Aengenvoort, Patrick Aengenvoort, and Michael Wang met together face-to-face for the first time in years at Rotocontol’s recent two-day open house in Siek, Germany.

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.
