Haryana-based Azure Press will be soon establishing a corrugation unit as it plans to aggressively expand its offering of corrugated board-based display and branding solutions to its customers.

“Corrugated displays are creating a lot of buzz in the market as greater number of brand owners are now asking for such solutions. Keeping this in mind we are aggressively focusing on this segment. The land for the new corrugation unit is ready and all the required machinery have been ordered,” said Siddhant Nagpal of Azure Press at the recently concluded In-Store Asia 2019.

Commenting on the reasons for rise in popularity of corrugated displays, Nagpal said that environment-friendly nature of paper and easy transportability as corrugated displays can be sent to customers in knocked-down form, so the packaging is smaller compared to wood or metal, are the main reasons.

Azure Press employs a variety of printing technologies such as flatbed, digital, offset screen, eco-solvent and 3D lenticular. It has Esko Kongsberg cutting table, flexi-cam router, laser and heat bending machines.

The company showed its solutions at the recently concluded In-Store Asia 2019 expo that was held in Mumbai from 14 to 16 March. Azure showed samples of display solutions such as free-standing display units, counter tops, island units, parasites, metal racks, retail fixtures and illumination display.

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.
