The global packaging machinery market size is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2 percent by 2025. The major factors that have attributed to its significant growth is the increased production output - especially in the emerging industrial economies, increased demand for a wide range of products, and as well as packaging sizes coupled with the flourishing e-commerce industry.
However, machinery in the packaging sector is constantly evolving with changing market dynamics, and customer expectations. There are still challenges when it concerns accessibility to high-performance machinery, failure to keep up with the changes because of the costs involved, and lack of automatic packaging machines with compact and high-performance drive, among others.

COMAS, under the able leadership of Mr. Franco Cappelli (Managing Director) and Mr. Massimo Cappelli (Sales Director), is aiming big in terms of customer satisfaction.
As the clients expect a complete value-for-money solution at reasonable delivery times with 100 percent deliverables, we have been delving deep into a very specialized machine from the day one. The level of sophistication and customization that we bring and the equipment that we offer are best-in-class in the industry,” highlights Shirish Vaidya, Director of the company. “Hence, because of this, we have become the first choice for the clients and if in-case it is going much beyond their capacity, then only they call for the second client,” he adds.
VAXOM Packaging in collaboration with COMAS has been designing and developing its products, especially with regards to the Indian market so as to match their expectations across all the parameters. If we look at other players in the market today, they are delivering the machines at higher valuations almost by 30%+ for same applications, that too at an average of 18 months of delivery time compared to 7 months of COMAS.

“One doesn’t have to depend on European suppliers as we are manufacturing the same quality products locally and providing it at a very reasonable cost and also a shortest period of time,” says Shirish. “From gathering information from the local people, explaining to them on how to operate the machine, providing them the local spare parts as per their timeline instead of waiting and getting from the OEMs,” he adds.

Furthermore, due to the robustness of products, delivery time, and after sales support, clients once partnered with VAXOM never leave their hands; 80 percent of products sales come from repetitive buying from their clients that are partnered with Vaxom for many years. Hence, the company has been growing at the rate of more than 30 percent year-on-year with 80 percent of it being repetitive orders.
We have started exporting our products for the OEMs at a competitive price, which are getting distributed all across the world. So, instead of carrying out the machine building here, we are making the parts here and we are sending it to Italy, where machines are assembled and are being supplied throughout the world, concludes Shirish.
