V-Shapes, an innovative supplier of vertically integrated products and services for convenient, hygienic and sustainable single-dose packaging, announced that it has formalized a strategic partnership relationship with Singapore-based New Quantum Holdings (NQH) to expand its presence in Asia, together with affiliated company Sustainable Green Solutions (SGSPL), will be V-Shapes marketing representative with offices in China, ASEAN, South Korea, and the Middle East. 

The company offers value-added business activities through supply chain management and has a significant focus on sustainable technology, making it an ideal choice for V-Shapes. SGSPL will join the company’s chief executive officer Christian Burattini and business development executive Jesper Gustavsson on Stand AA17 at the upcoming ProPak Asia event, scheduled for 15 to 18 June at Bitec Hall Bangkok. V-Shapes has worked with NQH/SGSPL on several projects over the past two years, with great progress.

V-Shapes to display sustainable packaging technology at ProPak Asia

“We are excited to be a formal strategic partner of V-Shapes in Asia and the Middle East, joining them at ProPak and working on creating a showroom here in Singapore so our clients can experience V-Shapes’ World First Innovative Sustainable Packaging Technology,” says Alan Yeap, chief executive officer of NQH/SGSPL. “At the show, we will be presenting to attendees the value of V-Shapes sustainable and 4R (Reduce, Return, Recycle, Reward) concept sachets and demonstrating the six-lane Alpha machine that enables packaging brand owners, converters/fillers, governments and NGO/NPOs to accomplish the complete manufacturing process of V-Shapes’ unique sustainable single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint and full-color branding, on-demand and with the industry’s highest quality.”

“We expect that expanding our relationship with NQH/SGSPL will spur further growth for us in Asia and the Middle East, giving customers more localized support in the countries NQH/SGSPL serves,” says Jesper Gustavsson, business development and founding partner at V-Shapes. “In line with our focus on sustainability via the 4R program, we will also be showing at ProPak a new high-barrier 100% polypropylene material recently certified as fully recyclable by Interseroh. These materials, reNew oX-100 and reNew oX-500, were designed by V-Shapes and consist of a sheet of polypropylene copolymers with a high-performance barrier. They are designed to be detected, sorted and recycled in the industrial waste stream. Interseroh ranked these two products at the high end of the scale in terms of suitability for mechanical recycling and the provision of secondary products.”

Gustavsson explains that typical barrier products also consist of multiple layers but are comprised of multiple polymers that severely limit their ability to be recycled or prevent recycling altogether. This new material adds no polyethylene or PET to the recycling stream. It would downgrade its recyclability, as is the case with other barrier materials. Its mono polymer construction makes it widely recyclable around the globe. These new materials create the same size and weight sachets as other 100% polypropylene materials used by V-Shapes.

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 grown 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.
