Founded in 1983, Cerm offers a modular, process-efficient solution designed to meet the specific needs of narrow web printers around the world. Cerm is an independent vendor, partnering with industry leaders to form a complete end-to-end business solution for its customers. Headquartered in Belgium, Cerm has an installed base in Europe, Australia and North America, with local support. Cerm is part of the Heidelberg Group.

At drupa, Cerm will demonstrate how their solution is not just a MIS solution but is an integral part of the complete automation for narrow web printing. At drupa, the company will show its community engagement through partnerships with exhibiting industry leaders like Chili Publish, Esko, Heidelberg-Gallus, HP, Xeikon and many others. Cerm’s solution is built around the three communication centres of a print-shop. Every Cerm communication centre presents the appropriate input to the operator and gives him dedicated tools to produce the desired output. All this information creates an integrated workflow for the printer – from estimating to invoicing.

Cerm will also release a new version of its digital shopfront Web4Labels at drupa. Based upon the remarks of the W4L user group, Cerm decided to entirely re-engineer the existing tool from scratch. Responsive Web Design will enable the use of any device – mobile phone, tablet, portable or desktop computers. Flexible information grids will give the printer the possibility to customize the information for every individual customer. These features will lower the threshold for customers to participate in the printers’ workflow via the Web. The Cerm team will be present at the Heidelberg stand in Hall 1 and the HP stand in Hall 17.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.
