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.

“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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
