On May 25-28, the 2021 China Metal Packaging Industry Conference and Exhibition was successfully held in Hangzhou. Zhou Yunjie, Chairman of ORG Technology Co., Ltd., made an opening speech at the third committee meeting of the seventh session of the China Baolian Metal Container Committee. Chen Yufei, Senior Vice President of ORG and General Manager of R&D center, delivered a keynote speech at the industry forum. The innovative products exhibited by ORG attracted the eager attention of the industry. This event demonstrated the demeanor of ORG industry leaders.
This conference is hosted by the China Packaging Federation and undertaken by the Metal Container Committee of the China Packaging Federation, with the theme of “intelligence, green, transformation, and innovation”. The event brought together a high-level lineup of leaders from China’s packaging industry authorities, Hangzhou Municipal Government, circular economy industry associations, domestic metal packaging companies, and upstream and downstream companies.
Zhou Yunjie, Director of the third committee of the seventh session of the China Baolian Metal Container Committee and chairman of ORG Technology, firstly thanked the predecessors who have made great contributions to the development of the industry in the opening ceremony. He said: “It was the predecessors who created this communication platform for the metal packaging industry, and this is where we are today. The harmonious exchanges and common development of the industry associations today did not live up to the expectations of the older generation of metal packaging people.” Later, Zhou Yunjie said in his speech that “in the post-epidemic era, new changes have taken place in the development pattern of the metal packaging industry. Digitization, IT application, and environmental protection will become the core goals of our future industry development. Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. Environmental protection is an important indicator of the future development of the metal packaging industry. We should not only be an investor in the industry, but also a creator of products and a protector of the environment. At the same time, packaging companies must be leaders of new life and continue to expand the extension of packaging products. In the future, no matter what difficulties and obstacles there may be, we will work hard to move forward. I believe that with the efforts of our people in the industry, the business of metal packaging will get better and better!” Zhou Yunjie’s speech resonated strongly among the participants, and there was warm applause.
At the industry forum, Chen Yufei, Senior Vice President of ORG Technology, gave a keynote speech on “Innovative Design, Increasing Value”. He said that we are now facing a rapidly changing era, a brand-new market, and there are no certain rules to follow. The only constant is “change”, and only “innovation” is accompanied by change. With the popularization of innovation in the digital age, “breakthrough, change, and innovation” is more worthy of attention. In an era when demand is further diversified and products are redefined, innovative design is a new engine for upgrading service consumption, driving industry growth, and tapping the blue ocean market. Relying on the path of innovation-driven sustainable development, ORG continues to innovate in product differentiation, packaging intelligence, design diversification, research and development and application of new materials. Its realization of the increase in corporate value provides greater imagination for future growth.
The annual meeting of the metal packaging industry focused on the post-epidemic era. On the one hand, the metal packaging industry must integrate development, accelerate the elimination of outdated production capacity, invest in mergers and integration development, and increase investment in digitalization, intelligence, energy conservation and emission reduction; On the other hand, metal packaging companies must seize the opportunities of sustained economic development, increased urbanization rate, and increase in the middle-class population. Enterprises should combine their own characteristics, unswervingly implement the development concept of “green, smart, transformation, and innovation”, jointly start a new journey in the metal packaging industry, and make new contributions to building a packaging power.
The 2021 China Metal Packaging Industry Conference and Exhibition lasted for three days, including activities like seminars, exchanges and visits. The atmosphere was harmonious and the discussions were enthusiastic. Member units expressed that “it is full of knowledge and they have learned a lot”.
The conference also commended the industry's innovative products and innovative technologies. The artillery cans designed by ORG won the gold award for product design innovation in the beverage can/beer can group; China Zun won the gold award for product design innovation in the milk powder can/food can group; the integrated milk powder can won the silver award for product design innovation in the milk powder can/food can group; the technology development and industrial application of retort-resistant coated iron materials developed by ORG won the Gold Award for Metal Packaging Technology Innovation in the Raw and Auxiliary Materials Group.
ORG Technology believes that when “intelligence, green, transformation, and innovation” have become the key words for the development of the metal packaging industry, companies must dare to accept changes, step on the rhythm of the times, and empower their own development. The successful transformation from a manufacturer to a service provider must also be inseparable from the time-reading and momentum engraved in the genes of the brand, which changes with time and is determined to innovate.
