Vinsak announced yet another deal at Printpack 2019 on Day 4 of the event. It sold its Lombardi Synchroline 430 label press to Ahmedabad-based Shreedhar Labels. The machine can print on substrates ranging from 12 microns to 350 GSM (nearly 500 plus microns). It also comes with an auto-registration feature by default. “Another reason why we opted for this machine is the services provided by Vinsak. One can blindly rely on them, and we didn’t want to take a chance with our post-sale support from the supplier,” says Minesh Patel, managing director of Shreedhar Labels.

Sreedhar Labels traditionally is a commercial printer. The company was planning to diversify into packaging since the last two years. The main reason Sreedhar Printers decided to diversify to packaging is because the company has already witnessed a lot of players entering the paper packaging segment and in order to diversify to labels, one needs to have a particular skill set. The transition from commercial printing to packaging labels business is a little difficult and not everybody can do it, according to Minesh Patel of Shreedhar Printers. The company Shreedhar Printers will operate its label business under the company name, Shreedhar Labels.

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.
