Provin Technos to represent Miyakoshi in South Asia

“Provin Technos announced its association with Japan-based web press manufacturer Miyakoshi at their 5th year anniversary events in Surat and Delhi. Provin Technos will be representing Miyakoshi pan India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Selling and servicing Miyakoshi’s rotary and semi-rotary offset presses, Provin hopes to install its first Miyakoshi press at a prestigious Indian printer by year end.

Miyakoshi is one of Japan’s leading manufacturers of industrial printing machines with group employee strength of 560 and annual turnover of US$ 150 Million. The company’s product portfolio includes a variety of digital and offset presses in both rotary and semi-rotary (intermittent) configurations that are designed and manufactured to address the ever-changing production demands in the label and packaging segment. These include digital on demand printers, business form printing machines; label printing, packaging and commercial offset printing presses. Established in 1946 as a machine repair shop, Tokyo headquartered Miyakoshi has 5 plants in Japan and more than 1500 installations worldwide.

Miyakoshi established Miyakoshi Europe in Madrid, Spain at the beginning of 2015 and since then has already established a user base of 28 semi-rotary offset UV presses in Europe with more than half installed as a result of the creation of Miyakoshi Europe just two years ago.

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.
