Toppan Inc. has evolved to diversify into multiple sectors

Toppan Printing (Toppan) (TYO: 7911), a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, has changed its English company name from Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. to Toppan Inc. following a resolution passed at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on June 29. The brand’s evolution represents Toppan’s expansion beyond its traditional markets both in terms of business fields and geographical footprint.

“Toppan has a rich history of wide-ranging business based on cutting-edge printing technologies. This has enabled us to diversify into multiple sectors transcending the traditional boundaries of the printing industry and to expand into global markets on various fronts,” said Hideharu Maro, Toppan’s President & Representative Director. 

“Based on a key concept of ‘Digital & Sustainable Transformation,’ we now intend to further drive the Toppan brand globally as one representing a group providing multifaceted, end-to-end solutions to customers in all kinds of sectors and to the many different challenges faced by global society,” he added.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
