M K Packaging was launched by business partners Tarun Jain and Tarun Vohra as a packaging enterprise in Delhi’s Naraina Industrial Area in the year 2017. The company, which started operations with a Chinese rigid box-making machine, has expanded to cartons, commercial printing, and corrugated boxes.

The firm installed a brand new Komori Enthrone 429 in December 2023 to expand into commercial printing. M K Packaging is mainly doing job work for advertising agencies for magazines, brochures, catalogs, pamphlets, manuals, stickers, and leaflets.

Speaking on the recent Komori installation, Jain said, “The Komori machine helped us to move our printing operations in-house. It is economical and efficient in printing. Komori’s service is also excellent with its reliable and well-trained service professionals.”

Jain is not new to Komori machines. He worked under the guidance of his uncle from Anupama Printers in the Naraina Industrial Area from 2005 to 2017 before the company’s operations were shifted to Gurugram. Jain’s uncle owned the printing press since 1972 and he learned the ABCs of the printing and packaging industry from him. Apart from the Komori machines, M K Packaging has two single-color Heidelberg machines for its printing operations.

M K Packaging is operating out of an area of approximately 10,000 square feet in Naraina. Its centrally located space ensures it is easily accessible for nearby printers and there is no problem in procuring raw materials. The firm is mostly into job work in the Naraina Industrial Area but also supplies cartons and corrugated boxes to Kolkata, Roorkee, Kundli in Sonepat, apart from exporting to Denmark.

Crompton Greaves, Bajaj, Havells, and Prestige are some of the 30 companies to which M K Packaging supplies cartons and corrugated boxes. M K Packaging uses local manual die-cutting, pasting, and stitching machines for its packaging operations. Going further, Jain plans to install a Komori Lithrone 540 to enhance his operations in the near future.

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 growing 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!
