Provin Technos, the sole distributor of RMGT in India, displayed its most popular 36-inch press at the PrintPack exhibition this year—a 5-color RMGT 920 ST press with UV plus coater. With four live demos daily, Provin’s stand was one of the busiest at the show. “The exhibition has been outstanding. We sold eleven offset presses at the exhibition out of which the final deals for three presses were done post event. The business generated us Rs 44 crore,” said Vinay Kaushal of Provin Technos. “A lot of ground work has been done by the organizing committee in making this show such a huge success.”

At the exhibition, Provin displayed three unique features of the RMGT 920 ST—coating unit isolation, auto nip check mode and the maintenance mode. In addition to other important features, these three are unique to this machine. The coating unit isolation feature allows the coating unit to go up by six inches and the unit has an independent drive. So printers can perform coating and non-coating jobs as they come without waiting for makeready. Provin has already installed more than 60 RMGT 920 ST presses across the country, of which 14 presses were installed in 2016. 

“The year 2017 is going to be a good one for the entire printing industry. There may be hiccups but we are moving towards a brighter side. The success of this exhibition goes on to prove just that,” said Kaushal.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
