Apex Nashik
FlexoKITE’s Experience Center in the Asia/Pacific region is located at Apex International’s facility in Nashik, India.

Apex International has established in the past two years, its FlexoKITE Asia Pacific demo and training center near Nashik in Central India. The state of the art demo and development center has complete equipment for the entire flexo workflow including digital flexo platemaking and a Bobst M5 430 flexo label and flexible packaging press. Supported by several industry leading companies, the center is adjacent to the Apex anilox roller manufacturing facility and is part of the same industrial complex.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
