Toyo Ink SC Holdings, the parent company of the Tokyo-based specialty materials manufacturer Toyo Ink Group, recently opened the new Technical Center in Shenzhen, China. The new tech center is established under Shenzhen Toyo Ink, the group’s trading and marketing subsidiary of electronics-related products in China. Taking advantage of its location in Shenzhen, an area widely regarded as the Silicon Valley of China, the new site is expected to accelerate electronic device development through technological collaborations with tech firms in the region. Major focus markets include smartphones, wearable devices, electric vehicles, 5G base stations, and other growth fields where highly reliable, high-performance components are a must.

“As a leading materials supplier to some of the biggest names in the electronics industry, we are committed to staying at the forefront of advanced materials innovation,” said Kengo Kochiya, general manager of Shenzhen Toyo Ink. “The opening of the new Shenzhen facility is in line with the group’s global strategy of expanding businesses in the designated priority digital domain, which includes electronics and IoT fields. Through the Shenzhen Toyo Ink Technical Center, we intend to increase technical exchanges with high-tech firms in the region, to develop new semiconductors and their peripheral materials alongside the Group’s R&D centers in the United States and Japan.”

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.
