Highcon to help companies in becoming agile and productive
Highcongeneral manager and vice president sales, Americas, Mike Ciaramella, said, “Highcon continues to grow its network of resellers in Latin America to help companies adapt processes to become much more agile and productive. Colombia and Ecuador are part of our global expansion plans, and we are excited to be entering these new markets with a company with the reach and proven performance of Grafix. Grafix understands the challenging needs of the folding carton and corrugated industries and has good coverage and credibility in the market.”
Grafix Digital general manager Juan José Lozano said, “Partnering with Highcon enhances our extensive range of end-to-end digital solutions and opens up huge opportunities for businesses to replace their analog die-making and slow set-up process with digital manufacturing processes. This will help them keep up with changing requirements for short runs and faster turnarounds and produce a wide range of applications in-house.”
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.
