Scodix and Sun Digital announce distribution partnership in Mexico

Scodix strengthens presence in Mexico


Scodix, the leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with Sun Digital for the distribution of Scodix technology in Mexico.

Sun Digital is a Mexican company with more than 40 years’ experience in the graphic arts industry, providing digital and conventional solutions. The company also has 15 years’ experience in the development and implementation of customized projects through integral solutions facing the challenges of transformation.

“At Sun Digital we understand that digital printing is not replacing offset impression, we see it as a complement to the product portfolio of our customers. It allows us to offer high value jobs, short runs, variable data, quality, and special materials,” says Juan Carlos Armendaris, business director at Sun Digital. “We believe this is the natural evolution of the industry.”

“This strategic alliance will strengthen our presence in Mexico,” says Isaac Castiel, vice president for Latin America at Scodix. “Sun Digital has the experience, business network and service structure that we are looking for to continue to grow solidly in the digital market.”

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 growing 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!
