Omet resets global marketing

New role for Paolo Grasso

Paolo Grasso Head of Sales of Labels Business Unit

In his 14 years of cooperation with OMET Italy as area sales manager (Asia and Middle East), Grasso has been instrumental in establishing a strong base of clients and installations in one of the toughest yet growing regions of the world. Seeing his ability to lead OMET to new and challenging territories OMET top management has appointed him the new role.

Speaking on the development Marco Calcagni, director of sales, said: “It’s the right time to organise our sales activities to be able to complete our global expansion with closer attention to each customer as for OMET every customer is special and deserves the necessary attention. We now feel that each segment deserves the necessary focus. We will continue to work in this direction for the best results.”.

OMET Group has consistently grown in double digits in the last decade with further growth expected. The newly introduced structure with separate unit for Label and Packaging markets allows us to provide dedicated resources and enhanced support to our global customer base. This step will also allow OMET to have a deeper market presence, streamlined marketing and communication and strengthen belief of customer centric approach.

In his new role, Paolo Grasso will lead the global sales team, agents and distributor network of the Label Business Unit, supporting them closely to further enhance the sales and market response. Upon accepting his new role, Grasso stated, “I’m proud of the trust OMET management has bestowed upon me and will continue to work towards the company’s uninterrupted growth and success. It’s my great honour, as I feel the label industry deserves greater attention, seen the continuous trend of changes and innovations it is going through”.

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.
