Dow's Packaging and Specialty Plastics business plans to introduce in India its PacXpert packaging technology during PlastIndia 2015, located at Hall 14, Booth 14R-B2 at the Helipad Ground in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
The flexible packaging market in India has grown in recent years to become Asia's third largest. The rising affluence and changing lifestyles of India's middle class will continue to drive a stronger demand for packaging and plastics solutions that provide increased convenience and functionality.
"India is important to Dow's Packaging and Specialty Plastics business, and we will continue to develop differentiated and game-changing innovations that meet the evolving needs of our customers and members along the value chain," said Mark Saurin, Asia-Pacific Commercial VP for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. "Participating in PlastIndia 2015 will enable us to showcase our customized packaging capabilities and advanced technologies, and emphasize our commitment to the plastics industry in India."
PacXpert Packaging Technology is Dow's latest and technologically advanced packaging solution that introduces a new dimension to storage with its distinctive flexibility and extensive functionality. The packaging material technology facilitates the conversion of large plastics containers into portable packages, providing endless possibilities for differentiated applications over a wide array of solid and fluid products in the industrial, businesses and residential sectors.
PacXpert Packaging Technology offers several advantages along the entire supply chain, including sustainability and reduced environmental footprint, improved packing density for shipping, logistics and warehouse efficiency and enhanced comfort design for the user.
"To further provide our customers in Asia with collaboration tools along the value chain that accelerate packaging innovation, we opened our fourth Pack Studios in Shanghai in April 2014," said Saurin.
Joining the existing facilities in Freeport, TX, Horgen Switzerland and São Paulo, Pack Studios in Shanghai will enhance the opportunities that bring new packaging innovations and applications faster to the India market.
