Cortec Corporation, a global player in VpCI /MCI corrosion-control technologies, has announced its acquisition of Cortec Southeast Asia’s (CSEA) offices in Singapore. CSEA is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Cortec Corporation.

This development promises to improve service and customer support in Southeast Asia due to a direct connection with Cortec’s headquarters in Saint Paul, Minnesota. 

Since January 2019, CSEA has been a partner and distribution hub for Cortec products and services in Southeast Asia, serving the markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei, and Indonesia.

Cortec’s CSEA acquisition will take that tradition to a new level of real-time product and service responsiveness when the transition is complete.

Cortec looks forward to completing the full transition in upcoming months, when improved inventory responsiveness will equip CSEA for better customer service and an expanded presence in the Southeast Asia region. 

 Cortec CEO, Boris Miksic, stated, “The acquisition of Cortec SEA in Singapore is an important step forward for our Group by expanding logistics and technical support to the distribution network in Asia and Australia.” Miksic founded Cortec 45 years ago and has watched it grow from a rust preventative startup at his home in Minnesota into a multinational entity with offices based in the US, Canada, Europe, and now Singapore.

Cortec  Corporation provides innovative, environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI  corrosion control technologies. It seeks to deliver cost-effective, user-friendly integrated solutions for corrosion problems in packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, oil and gas, and many other industries.

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.
