TechNova, headquartered in Taloja, Maharashtra, will be promoting Esko’s software and hardware solution in the offset folding carton segment. Esko’s product portfolio supports and manages the packaging and print processes at brand owners, retailers, designers, packaging manufacturers and print service providers. TechNova has a strong base of packaging manufacturers with their complete range of digital plate products, CtP solutions, and green consumables.

Pranav Parikh, chairman and managing director of Technova says, “It comes as a natural synergy
between our two organizations. With Esko’s leadership position in packaging prepress integrated
with TechNova’s wide range of CtP solutions, plates, chemicals and digital printing solutions, it will complete the entire prepress workflow. There is a huge pressure from brand owners on packaging converters to eliminate errors, produce the right colors, and reduce cost while demanding shorter time to market. We believe that with Esko’s addition to TechNova’s portfolio we can address all of these concerns and be the preferred choice of any packaging converter for their prepress requirements.”

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 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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
