The Printers House (TPH) and Q.I. Press Controls – Engineering Automation Electronics (QIPC-EAE) have an association that dates back 15 years. QIPC-EAE, a specialist in measurement and control systems for the printing industry, and TPH, an Indian constructor of printing presses, recently celebrated this long-stranding partnership where TPH was presented with a commemorative figure by QIPC-EAE.
Stalwart support and bridge-building
The presentation reflected on the achievements of the past years. “TPH has always given us stalwart support in India,” said Vijay Pandya, managing director of QIPC-EAE India. “At trade fairs, for example, they’ve allowed us to demonstrate our automation systems on their presses. What’s more, they’ve always put in a good word for QIPC-EAE among their customers.”
LK Sharma, chief executive officer at TPH underlined, “We have a very special working relationship with QIPC-EAE. In the beginning, the collaboration of course was with QIPC, with the later addition of the newly acquired EAE. Our job was to build bridges between the needs of typical Indian customers and QIPC-EAE. We have always tried to convince clients of the quality inspections carried out by QIPC-EAE, because we are convinced of their value too. In turn, QIPC-EAE always tries to meet the expectations of clients as well as constantly seek out new innovations.”
Reliability at an affordable price
Pandya made reference to several projects that QIPC-EAE has carried out with TPH, both within the country and globally. “We did an installation at the National Media Group in Kuwait, the largest printing press that TPH has ever sold, complete with our automation systems. There have also been numerous installations at Lokmat Publications, as well as the system we installed on the 7-tower TPH Orient 45000 at Amar Ujala.
Both the companies are confident of the future. “Trust is an important basis for sustaining an intensive collaboration such as the one between QIPC-EAE and TPH,” said Sharma. “That trust is enshrined in a reliable product, optimum costs for the user and excellent after-service support. Furthermore, the constant quest for product improvements plays a vital role.”
