Landa Digital Printing recently announced that it has opened a new European consumables manufacturing facility, based in Sittard, The Netherlands. Producing the revolutionary Landa Nanoink used to power Landa S10 and S10P nanographic printing presses, the new site enables the company to double consumables production and support the rapid growth in demand for ink due to soaring customer print volumes.

By manufacturing in mainland Europe, the company has dramatically shortened its lead times for consumables and increased its production capacity. It has also reduced its environmental impact by reducing the shipment of raw materials and finished goods required to produce its products. Designed to improve its consumables supply chain, the new facility ensures market leading service to its portfolio of European customers and their international brands.

Gil Oron, chief executive officer, Landa Digital Printing comments, “Our new Sittard site is geared towards sustainability, service reliability and business growth. It provides Landa customers with local supply, which in times of very challenging worldwide logistics and parts supplies, offers considerable reassurance. What’s more, with customer production volumes increasing daily, this also ensures prompt and reliable delivery too – crucial in increasing efficiency.”

The new Landa facility provides consumables for its revolutionary and unique portfolio of nanographic printing presses, designed to address a huge gap in the market for cost effective short to medium run mainstream packaging and commercial jobs. Solutions include the Landa S10 nanographic printing press – a B1 solution designed for mainstream packaging and converting industries – and the Landa S10P nanographic printing press, which is ideal for two-sided B1 general commercial printing.

Gil Oron concludes, “Our new European facility is another example of our long term commitment to the European market, and our ability to be the change-maker that the industry needs. Landa continues to revolutionize and digitize the mass production printing industry.”

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.
