Xeikon has announced a new cooperation agreement with Smart LFP for Poland. The new agent will be handling sales of all dry toner and inkjet printing presses for labels, flexible packaging, and folding carton, in a move that sees Xeikon expand its established presence in this key market.  

Established in 2019, Smart LFP was set up to offer professional integration of the production environment based on deep knowledge and long experience in the Polish printing market. It is based in Katowice, in southern Poland, where the well-equipped Smart LFP Experience Center offers on-site demos of solutions for large format printing, wall decoration, multifunctional digital cutting and ERP software. With the new appointment, the company is now adding to these core competencies with the extensive application-focused Xeikon portfolio of technology. 

The partnership will help Xeikon to extend their market share

“Xeikon is a pioneer of digital color printing technology with many years of experience in the global market, and this is a great fit with our own business model,” said Adam Ambrozkiewicz, business development manager of Smart LFP. “As a distributor of Xeikon, we can now offer our clients comprehensive solutions for the fast-growing labels and packaging segments. We have only just taken on this fantastic new opportunity, but it has been greeted with great enthusiasm, and we already have several projects underway. This is a very exciting development for us.”

“Although Smart LFP has only been in operation for a few years, this is a team of highly experienced print experts with many contacts in the industry. Their fast-growing operation and rapidly expanding product portfolio are perfectly in line with our own strategy for growth,” said Michał Kuczkowski, sales manager Poland, Labels & Packaging, Xeikon. “This mutually beneficial partnership will increase our activity in the large Polish market even further, reaching new companies and introducing them to many opportunities that Xeikon solutions bring to the labels and packaging space.

“We see a lot of potential to extend our market share by bringing local onboard experts, and we believe that Smart LFP will create additional sales opportunities, which will turn into more installations of Xeikon machines in Poland for various applications”, concluded Kuczkowski.

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 grown 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!
