Reiterating its commitment towards its vision of “Enriching the Future for People, Industries and the Globe by innovative-Automation”, OMRON is on its way to further strengthen its focus towards the packaging machine makers in India. The company aims to enable the manufacturers to prepare for and take maximum advantage of the rapid shift in automation that the sector is witnessing over the last few years with the right technologies and capabilities.
This was shared by Sameer Gandhi, managing director, OMRON Automation India during the showcase of the company’s integrated packaging solutions at PackMach Asia, the international fair for the packaging & processing industry, Mumbai, from 7 to 9 December, 2022.
“The post-Covid world of packaging is demanding. There is a rise in the demand for better quality, more hygienic, and ‘zero-touch’ packaged goods, the emergence of high-mix-low-volume requirements, and an upsurge in the concern towards eco-friendly packaging. Also, India is emerging as a preferred global destination for packing machinery importers. All this is making machine manufacturers look up to global standards by going for high-end performance, end-to-end, and completely integrated & scalable solutions. Equipped with solutions delivering scalability, connectivity, modularity, openness, and safety, OMRON is all set to help them move up the value chain. We aim to enhance our reach amongst vertical and horizontal form fill and seal (HFFS & VFFS) machine makers catering to food & commodity, pharmaceutical, and FMCG markets,” Sameer shared.
