The Manroland Sheetfed India team has added Peter Rego as director of Business Development and Rahul Chitkara as its new CFO. Manroland Sheetfed headquartered in New Delhi has been run for the last several years in the country by its managing director Neeraj Dargan. As the company observes the bouyant growth of the Indian carton packaging industry, it is gearing up for the anticipated upsurge in the purchase of new multicolor sheetfed offset presses configured for packaging and also commercial printing in the coming year.

Speaking of the addition of Peter Rego who recently retired from Heidelberg India, after putting in 25 years there as its main offset press sales person, Dargan said, “With his vast experience and knowledge of the sheetfed print Industry spanning more than two decades and a total work experience in capital goods and services of more than four decades, we are confident that Peter Rego will do a great job for Manroland Sheetfed India.”

Rego himself is confident that the revival in the economy and the packaging and even the commercial print industry are just round the corner. He will continue to work from Mumbai and says the market will bounce back in the coming months. He says, “Packaging will once again see an exponential growth. Also along with packaging which is the flavor of the season, with the education system slowly coming back to normalcy and students returning to the classroom, commercial printing and book publishing will see better days within the next few months as well.”

Rahul Chitkara who becomes Manroland Sheetfed’s new chief financial officer is a qualified management graduate with more than a decade’s experience with international business and Manroland Sheetfed India’s operations. Dargan notes that, “With his diversified knowledge Rahul adds immense value to support the company and its customer base.”

Manroland Sheetfed has been growing steadily and has shown good results in the past few years and its new state-of-the-art R700 Evolution press already rolled out globally. Simultaneously, Manroland Sheetfed India is raising its visibility and customer centric operations with better and more efficient after sales service. The company is gearing up to to again spread its wings in the Indian market where it has traditionally enjoyed a strong footprint especially in the packaging market and the first brand new VLF presses sold into the country.

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.
