Provin Technos completes five years on a high
Vinay Kaushal

Provin Technos recently celebrated five years of growth and success with strategic partner RMGT (RYOBI MHI Graphic technology) during an event held at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi on 2 July 2017. During the celebrations, Provin announced yet another strategic partnership with Japanese OEM, Miyokashi Printing Machine, well known for its range of rotary and semi-rotary presses. During the course of the evening, Vinay Kaushal, co-founder of Provin Technos, thanked his customers as well as RMGT president Katsushi Hirokawa, senior vice president Keiji Katayama and vice president manufacturing Satoshi Matsushima for their unflinching support. The event, attended by the RMGT team and Provin’s loyal customers underscored the seriousness with which RMGT takes the Indian market and its partnership with Provin Technos.

Kaushal praised the 10-member core team of Provin Technos, whose efficiency and loyalty towards the organization, he said, was behind the organization’s growth chart. He said, “The journey of Provin started in July 2012 with nine people who continue to be with us. We will honor all of them today.” Each of the ten core members of the team were then honored with mementos presented by Hirokawa. Kaushal added, “When we started our journey, Mitsubishi gave us excellent support; with RMGT also it continued and it is a pleasure that today when we’re completing five years of our operations, we have the top management of RMGT here with us.”

In his address Hirokawa said, “I wpould take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their continued interest and patronage of our RMGT products. Provin Technos started the partnership with RMGT in 2014 as the sole agent in India. For the past three years, Provin and RMGT have achieved excellent results with orders for more than 55 machines. Provin has a strong corporate philosophy; they always make the best effort to satisfy their customers with great service support. The Indian market is consistently growing and it is one of the most important market for us. We will provide much stronger support to Provin in order to meet the requirements of Indian customers.”

Kaushal further announced his company’s new strategic partnership with Miyokashi Printing Machine saying, “Today we are announcing a strategic partnership with another Japanese company, Miyakoshi Printing Machine. As their pan-India agents for rotary and semi-rotary presses, we will cover the markets of India, Nepal and Sri Lanka.” He also said that this is a vital growth phase of the company as it builds more partnerships and widens the portfolio of its products. Touching on the issue of GST implementation, he said “We’re going to see another face of India in the next few years.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
