NBG has announced that it will sponsor five Awards categories – one in the Performance Awards, two in the Quality Awards and two in the Special Covid-19 Awards. These Awards categories are: SME Company of the Year, Packaging Converter of the Year (Rigid Box), Packaging Converter of the Year (Textile), Factory of the Year during Covid-19 and joint sponsor of Frontline Team Member during Covid-19.

Nitin Garg, managing director of NBG Printographic Machinery, said that the PrintWeek Awards has always celebrated the good and the best in the print industry. We are glad to form this association. “It resonates with our idea of excellence. We have always believed in enabling our clients by providing the best and most innovative solutions through manufacturing or by association with the best and most efficient machinery manufacturers in the Printing and Converting industry.”

Garg added that with the association, his company hopes to create more awareness among the printing fraternity and, in general, to bring focus on sustainable packaging solutions.

NBG’s key products have been flexo printing machines, paper bag machines and rigid box machines. During PrintPack, NBG’s machine sales included two paper bag machines, a rigid box-making machine and a flexo printing machine booked by an overseas customer, among others. “Flexo printing in recent years has become very popular, especially in the packaging industry, as the technology, in general, has improved considerably in the last two decades resulting in better, consistent and cost-effective prints,” Garg said.

NBG has installed over 80 automatic paper bag manufacturing machines in the paper bag segment at 15 customer sites. Garg said, “The number is rising. We are happy to provide solutions for sustainable products and green-carrying solutions. The segment is growing, and we are ready to serve the opportunity with our solutions.”

With business in recent months returning close to a normal post-Covid-19 pandemic, Garg informed that his company’s clients are now looking at future possibilities and technologies. “These have been tough two years, but at the same time, it has given the print industry time to rethink and re-strategise for a better future. For us, it exposed the weaknesses in our system, and we are actively working to resolve the respective issues.”

NBG is in the business of offering solutions for sustainable packaging, which Garg said is the need of the hour. “The governments worldwide are driving sustainable packaging wherever possible. Hence, we will be launching some more interesting solutions for sustainable packaging to fill the manufacturing demand for such products,” concluded Garg.
