Prasenjit Das recently joined MacDermid Graphics, a global enterprise in flexographic platemaking as well as printing solutions, as cluster senior sales manager for the South Asia region. Rahul Dwivedi, the previous head of sales for South Asia, has been appointed as senior business development manager for South Asia.

Das brings his 20 years of experience in the printing, textiles, and packaging industry to MacDermid Graphics Solutions. He was serving as vice president marketing – Asia and the Middle East for Apex Asia Pacific before joining MacDermid.

Das’ new role would include managing and implementing MacDermid’s sales strategies, recognizing new market opportunities, and furnishing dynamics to generate growth in the South Asia cluster. He will be reporting to Jesper Bringstrom, vice president – APAC, MacDermid Graphics Solutions.

Bringstrom shares his views on the new appointment, “I am confident that Prasenjit will excel in his new role and will help transform our sales operations to best serve our customers and meet our strategic goals in our growing South Asia market.”

In an exclusive chat with Indian Packaging South Asia, Das says, “I am very much excited to join MacDermid Graphics Solution (MGS) as senior cluster manager. As you are aware that MGS is one of the leading manufacturers of photopolymer plate and plate making equipment in the world. MGS’ focus on innovation and customer centric approach in achieving its strategic goals makes me feel proud to be a part of this great organization.”

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
