  • Jet Technologies jets into Indonesia

    Jet Technologies is flying into new markets with an expansion into Indonesia, establishing a full-service branch in Jakarta.

    Announcing the move on 16 June, Jack Malki, Jet Technologies’ director, says that the company’s examination of the potentials within the Indonesian market has been in the pipeline for some time, but was only finalised after considerable research into a range of potential Asian markets.

    “The sophistication of the Indonesian printing, labelling and packaging segments, given the country’s wide-ranging FMCG [fast-moving consumer goods] manufacturing industry and the vast size of its market potential swayed us heavily in our decision,” says Malki.

    The Indonesian connection: (L-R) David Reece, Jet technologies sales director, Australia, Arman Mampuk, sales director, Indonesia, Yanuar Emilius, office manager, Indonesia, and Jack Malki, director of both Jet technologies Indonesia and Australia.

    The move into Indonesia coincides with the appointment of the first two local Indonesian executive positions: sales manager, Arman Mampuk, who has held sales positions with Cyber, the Indonesian agent for Ryobi for the past five years, and Yanuar Emilius, incoming office manager for the new subsidiary.

    Emilius comes with a logistics career in Europe and Indonesia, and includes a series of administrative responsibilities with Ferrostaal Indonesia.

    “These two newly created positions further strengthen the support that Jet Technologies is able to offer our clients throughout the region,” says Malki.

    The move to Indonesia follows a similar expansion into New Zealand the company underwent in 2010. Jet Technologies’ past Southeast Asian activities involve an association with Denmark’s Gerhardt International, with its subsequent takeover by Rotometrics in the US influencing Jet Technologies’ decision to establish a full service stand-alone branch in Indonesia.

  • Final count down to Label Summit Indonesia

    The conference program for Labelexpo Global Series’ brand new event, Label Summit Indonesia 2013, has been revealed, with registration now open for the very first regional Labelexpo industry event to be held in Bali.

    The inaugural Label Summit Indonesia – of which Print21 is the official media partner – will be held at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali from 29 to 30 May. While the event will be held in the eastern Indonesian province for its first outing, it is intended to alternate each year between Bali and Jakarta.

    Focusing on the label and package printing industry, the Summit will comprise a mix of technical presentations, real life business case studies and the latest industry insight and business intelligence into market trends, conditions and challenges.

    The Summit kicks off with a roundup of market trends with presentations by Brenton Barrett, Multi-Color Corporation’s Asia Pacific president, who will look at global trends, along with Ariana Susanti of the Indonesian Packaging Federation, who will explore the latest developments in South East Asia.

    Additionally, a printer panel discussion comprising converters from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines will look at printing as part of the economy and future growth opportunities.

    The event’s first afternoon sessions will address the latest available technologies, capabilities and applications, with the keynote being delivered by HP Indigo’s Christian Menegon. This will focus on making the move from a conventional to digital workflow and examine how the converter needs to adapt to cater for short run jobs.

    Other topics on the agenda include creating value with 3D technologies and a guide to flexo technology, materials and performance.

    The event’s second day content has been developed to help identify new opportunities for business growth. Sri Yulianti, research and development packaging manager of home personal care from Unilever will look at how to implement a sustainable strategy for environmentally friendly packaging practices.

    Meanwhile, Pete Holywell of Supa Stik Label will share secrets on how to transform a label business using online marketing and social media platforms, along with other subjects including effective anti-counterfeiting solutions for brand protection.

    Aimed at label and package printing converters, brand owners and designers, the Summit is complemented by a table-top exhibition with exhibitors including Esko, Flint Group, Gallus, Mark Andy, Nilpeter, Omet, RotoMetrics and Stork Prints. In addition, delegates will also enjoy an evening reception and afternoon networking function.

    Label production and consumption in the region set to escalate – Jade Grace, the event’s director.

    “Label Summit Indonesia is designed to provide an insight into the South East Asian market place and focus on learning and developing best practice from the latest available technologies and trends,” says Jade Grace, the event’s director. “Delegates will find out how to maximize business growth opportunities and also how emerging technologies such as digital offer them new possibilities today, not just in the future.

    “The consumption of labels and packaging in the region is set to escalate because lifestyle habits are changing. As already seen in other emerging markets such as China and India, this Westernized lifestyle quickly drives change across the supply chain and manufacturing process.

    “The label and package printing industry here is in its infancy, but advances in using more sophisticated technologies, materials and marketing techniques will be fast tracked to keep up with demand. For those fortunate enough to be involved in this cycle, the commercial opportunities and benefits are immense as the Indonesia market matures,” she says.

    An early bird rate applies to registrations made before 26 April tickets ranging between Rp2,310,000 [Indonesian rupiahs] ($240 USD) for one-day passes, to Rp2,887,500 ($300USD) for two-day passes. Delegates can register online.
