Participating for the first time at the world’s largest packaging expo, Interpack 2017, Ahmedabad-based booklet label specialist Unick Fix-a-Form will showcase innovations in booklet labels and anti-counterfeiting features.
The company has booked a nine sq/m stand at FG-East 15-2-29.
Speaking to PrintWeek India, Priyank Vasa, development and strategy director at the company said, “In the last few years we have developed several label innovations with regards to value additions in booklet labels and PSA labels and developed several anti-counterfeiting and tamper-evident features such as security strips, customisable void labels etc. We have several solutions that focus on the functionality of the product. The idea is to leverage the global platform of Interpack to showcase our strength and expertise and expand the reach.”
Vasa highlighted some Braille booklet labels and a recent job of 120-page booklet label accomplished for an agro-chemical company.
Established in 1984, Unick Fix-a-Form & Printers was perhaps the first company in India to introduce Fix-A-Form leaflet/booklet labels in India in its early years. Unick has also partnered with Fix-A-Form International, a part of UK-based Denny Bros Group.
The company is managed by director Hemen Vasa and his son Priyank, who has completed his engineering in printing technology from Manipal Institute of Technology. The father-son duo is upbeat about the business. Hemen Vasa said, “Even though India is a price-sensitive market, the export from India is a good business. The changing US and EU regulations have generated immense scope for the Indian industry.” Among the new developments, the company plans to diversify into shrink sleeves, IML, and mono cartons.
