    Recently PSS visited Paperworld Germany, an event organized by Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Gmbh, Germany. There we had an opportunity to meet Mr. Vipul Bhargava, General Manager – Sales and Marketing of Anchor Groups - Writing Instrument division. Established in 1964, Anchor group grew at a fast pace under the proficient leadership of Shri Jadhavji Lalji Shah. The brand ANCHOR became a household name. In 2007 the company sold its electrical  business to Panasonic and thereafter  ventured into diversified business such as Writing Instruments , Paints, Reality and also into Electricals, the groups passion.

    The writing instruments business is being headed by Mr. Mehul Shah, elder son of Shri Jadhavji Shah. The company sell’s  pens  under two brands mainly “Anchor” & “ITALIA” pens. Anchor Pens focuses mainly on mass product and ITALIA Pens in metal pens. The Writing instrument division is fast growing in the domestic as well as international market. The brand is in the process of launching many new products for the masses and the classes. The company also plans to very shortly launch a wide range of school and office stationery like White board markers, Permanent markers, wooden pencils, Sharpeners, Erasers etc. to name some.

     When asked about any new products launched recently, Vipul ji informed us in detail about the competitive new range of Pens with attractive designs. “We have launched a new brand called “DELA”. This is basically a mass production pen with a triangle grip. What we have tried is, to give a little facelift to our mass production writing instruments to make them look attractive and offer maximum margins to the retailers than most of our competitors.

     The company is very focused on this division  and is developing new products for both the domestic and international markets. The company is also setting up a new plant at Sukhesh near Vapi to increase their per day production. The plant would be fully operational by April 2019.

    Booth No. A79 in Hall 3.0 displayed a range of eye-catching and wonderful designs of office and utility products. The stall belonged to Sentisina GmbH, a Germany based company founded in 2015. Sentisina design lab is an international design team of industrial designers and graphic designers, connected with investors and marketing experts to achieve a gapless transformation from the first design concept to final product.

    Among the array of products that were put up for display, one such product that caught attention was –“Blade Breaker”. Luckily we got the opportunity to speak with the designer of the product - Michael Satz. He explained us the Utility of the product, and how the design won him the “GERMAN DESIGN AWARD SPECIAL 2018”.

    “As you see here this Top Cover of the transparent Plastic Box has Two Slots to accommodate two different blade sizes” said Michael, as he showed us the Blade Breaker box. He further added “When you insert the worn-out blade edges in one of this slot and apply a little force, the blade chips off easily. Most importantly it does not fly off, drop down or cause any harm. Instead it falls in the container below thus offering you a collection of about 100g of High Quality Steel for every blade used in your office or factory

    The demo was really impressive. The blade breaker combines a tool for breaking off cutter blade segments with a collection box for the detached segments. It is suitable for all conventional cutters with break-off segments. Using blade breaker, the blade is automatically positioned at the correct angle, so that the break-line is parallel to that indicated on the blade. The breakage is so clean and easy that it totally eliminates any chance of injuries. Plus the advantage of accumulation of high quality steel for recycling made it an Award Winning product.

    This year KUM GmbH dedicated a section of the booth to the newly designed series of Sharpeners and other stationery items made of BIO PLASTICS.  Sabine Sack, Head of Sales, KUM GmbH introduced us to their brand new product line called “Blue Ocean” series. “We are proud to be the first in the market with stationery products made of Bio Plastics” she said.

    Here we must inform our readers about Bio Plastics. Bioplastics are plastics derived partially or in whole from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, straw, woodchips, food waste, etc. Bioplastic can be made from agricultural by-products and also from used plastic bottles and other containers using microorganisms.

    The advantage of Bio Plastics is that apart from taking less time to break down when discarded, biodegradable plastics can also be recycled and are non-toxic since they contain no chemicals or toxins compared to other types of plastics that can emit harmful chemicals, especially if burned.To begin with KUM has developed a sharpener range called CUB3, scales and set squares with Bio Plastics.  As one would notice there is no visible difference in Blue Ocean range of products from their Fossil fuel based Plastic range.

    When asked about the reason for the shift in raw material for Blue Ocean range, Sabine said “Due to their universal properties, fossil based raw materials like Plastics in this case, are used extensively in products that we use in day to day life. Today it may appear normal, but going by the rate, at which these fossil fuels are depleting, in the foreseeable future these will be a thing of the past. As a responsibility to future generations and to protect limited resources we feel obliged to produce sustainable products.”

    We at PSS congratulate KUM and convey our best wishes for taking a pioneering step for conserving the environment for future generations.

    Established in 1994, Green & Associates (HK) Ltd. describes itself as design agency that offers innovative, unique and contemporary designer products such as photo frames, housewares, desktop accessories etc. 

    In 2009 the company decided to dedicate a range for products which will be designed and manufactured using the concepts of Recycle, Reuse and Regenrate. It was named as OOObject. We at PSS got a chance to meet the company’s founder Mr. Gewah Lam Cheong-leung and his Marketing Director, Denise Ng. This time around they had come with one of their remarkable and viable product concept called “30X30 Verse Biodegradable Pens” that included pens made of 1/3rd recycled food waste.

    Denise explained us the benefits “According to a report from United Nation, 1/3 of of all food produced is wasted or lost because of inappropriate practices or handling. We purposely designed this range of “30 X 30 biodegradable Pens” made of food wastes. At first, there were 30 kinds of food wastes, the series has been expanded to 45 kinds of food wastes. Now, it is extended to the wastes of fabric rags, wood chips, threads, pokers, books, ceramic, etc.”

    Denise highlighted an interesting aspect. He said that they prefer to call this project as “Upcycling” instead of “Recyling” as they are utilizing food waste into a useable daily life product that “for e.g. in Aloe Vera range, we collect waste aloe leaves directly from Cosmetic factories in china, for almonds shell range we collect the shells from Nuts factories

     The body of the pens is 100% biodegradable. Infact the Plastic tip , cap and the end cap are made of PP which is at first processed with a biodegradable agent that increases the biodegradability rate by upto 5 times. OOObject also has a range of “FI-NE pens” - Pens upcycled from fishing nets; and “WBO Pens” - Pens upcycled from drink bottles.
