SK Offset, a print, packaging, and branding specialist, has installed its first narrow-web flexo label press – a pre-owned Gallus EM 340 S and flexo printing machine for the short-run job ComcoCadet. Apart from the print units with UV curing, the press contains inline foiling, coating, laminating, cold foil, hot foil, diecutting, and screen capabilities. Installed in the first half of June 2022, SK Offset has built a comprehensive plant and a modern pressroom with both sustainability and with hygiene and maintainability in mind.

The company’s concept is to give the area’s top local and international brands a local capacity for extremely high-quality labels. There is a growing demand for dependable, high-quality suppliers with expertise working with major brands as the new generation industry sectors grow in Meerut.

The specific requirements of brand owners can be met by the Gallus label press and SK Offset’s extensive offline ancillary equipment, including the provision of bar and QR codes. The segments visible in the area include food, beverage, alcobev, as well as candles, cosmetics, and body care products.

Ayush Agarwal, director, SK Offset, says, “In addition to innovation, brand value, and versatile technology, we choose to invest in established technologies. The Gallus label press stood out as the best to us after we looked at all the presses and their setups.” The selection was influenced by the press’s capacity to accommodate a variety of processes and by how easily Heidelberg India could service it.

“We can print CMYK and all Pantone colors and metallic inks like silver and gold with coatings for gloss and matt finishes and textures. Our labels can face any environment depending on the specifications given by the customer. We have different types of substrates for various applications and environments,” concludes Agarwal.

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 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.
