The MPS Proflexo stand at the Label Summit Latin America 2015

MPS saw high visitor footfall during the Label Summit Latin America 2015 held from 21 to 22 April in Mexico City’s World Trade Center. Visitors were attracted to the stand to learn more about the recently launched MPS EB flexo press and features of the EF multi-substrate press, in addition to the launch of manufacturing MPS presses in the USA. The two-day conference and table-top exhibition is the largest gathering for the label and package printing industry in Latin America.

MPS director Eric Hoendervangers represented the MPS management team at the summit, and was joined by MPS Latin America and agent Pro Flexo International, who provide local MPS sales and service throughout Latin America. On display was the EB press, a cost-effective alternative in flexo printing, featuring a solid machine construction with high print quality, predictable and reliable productivity, and an operator-friendly press operation. The EB press is a solution for companies starting out in label production and established printers wishing to expand their label production with a cost-effective label press.

Also featured was the MPS EF flexo press, a high-quality and highly automated multi-substrate flexo press, especially designed for label production and flexible packaging printing on a variety of substrates including thin film, paper, carton board, shrink sleeves, in-mold, tube laminate and flexible packaging. The EF is MPS’s flagship press, offering a choice of either plate rolls or print sleeves, providing flexibility and maximizing press performance due to its ease of operation and reliability.

“Label Summit Latin America 2015 was very successful for MPS,” said Hoendervangers. “The number of visitors exceeded the previous summit with double digits. Printers and converters were impressed by the solutions MPS offers with both the EF and EB press lines. The new EB press is seen as a game changer for the Mexican label printing industry, because of its cost-effectiveness for short and long label printruns.”

MPS agent Pro Flexo International recently joined the Mexican label association AmetiqAC. Fernando de laCueva, area sales manager for Pro Flexo Mexico, was invited to hand out an award during the first edition of the Latin American Label Awards, organized by Ametiq. Jaime Dagnino, regional director for MPS Latin America said, “We are proud to have participated in the first edition of the Latin American Label Awards. We look forward to the continued support of Ametiq and our customers in Latin America.”

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!
