Multitec talks about printers entering the packaging industry

Amit Ahuja, chief executive officer at Multitec, speaking about the event, said, “PrintPack is a diversified event which attracts printers from all fields – offset, gravure and flexo, so in that sense, it is an important event for us. Also, there is a change taking place within the packaging industry towards short runs, and we fit perfectly in that niche. Many commercial offset printers are excited by the opportunity to enter the packaging market, and gravure printers are looking for shorter run solutions. Both of these will be catered to by our product portfolio.”

“As every industry is effected massively by the pandemic and its consequences, so many printers from India are still avoiding the exhibitions. A major footfall is not expected at the event, however, one can aim to be rationally optimistic as events like these provide a huge opportunity for growth,” he concluded. 

Note: The IPPGroup will be publishing the PrintPack India Show Daily on all five days of the event from 26 to 30 May 2022. Our May issues of Indian Printer and Publisher and Packaging South Asia will also contain previews of the event. 

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.
