At Printpack 2019, Valco Melton, a wholly owned subsidiary of Valco Cincinnati Inc, will showcase gluing systems for the folding carton and corrugated applications.

At the Printpack stand, the company will demonstrate gluing systems for folding cartons from Ero, which was acquired by Valco Melton in 2016. The acquisition was made as part of Valco Melton’s strategy to expand its scope of offerings to customers in the paper converting industries, including corrugated, folding carton and bag manufacturing.

Ero has been servicing the needs of the converting industries since 1994. Located in Brescia, Italy, the company specializes in the production of electronic gluer systems for compact and corrugated cardboard boxes, paper bags, wood, sacks and other special gluing applications, as well as glue detection systems for folder-gluers and case makers.

Also, on display will be gluing system for corrugation application from Valco Melton’s own solutions portfolio.

“Folding cartons and corrugation are two fast growing segments in India and through Printpack we will look to tell the industry about the gluing solutions we have. We will showcase both Ero and Valco Melton brands at the event,” says Ravi Kiran, director, Valco Melton India.

Valco Melton has been present in India since 2010 and has developed a significant customer base in both hot melt and cold glue application systems in India and emerging Asian markets.

At Printpack 2019, Valco Melton will be present at stall F42, hall 10.

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.
