Line O Matic is a pioneer in manufacturing exercise notebook machinery and paper converting machinery. The company has supplied more than 3000 machines across the globe. With an enviable presence in more than 61 countries, which includes India, Line O Matic is a respectable name in the production of paper converting machines.

The company recently launched a ream wrapping machine, which is an essential unit of cut size sheeters. The machine is being supplied to customers along with cut size sheeters. They also supply ream wrapping machines to customers as a single unit.

At Paperex 2017, Line O Matic received a good footfall with several queries for a number of machines. Multiple machines were booked by customers at the event. Any event or trade show, big or small, has a huge effect on the annual turnover of a company. Realizing the potential of the event, Nirav Parikh, general manager (marketing) quoted, “It is a very important event for everyone from the paper industry. We always manage to grab customers’ attention at such events. This edition of Paperex has been a good one for us as we secured some new customers while our existing client base got familiar with the new products that have been launched by us in recent times. This is a very important platform for knowledge exchange and networking.”

The Far East countries are posing a tough challenge for Indian paper converting machinery manufacturers. These countries manufacture machines for Indian customers which are more or less basic in nature but cater to the demands of cheap and affordable rates. The main challenge for the Indian companies has been to raise their standards and provide the machines at a fairly cheaper rate. Nevertheless, Indian manufacturers have done good so far by restricting the foreign players from participating in the Indian market actively. Lately, Line O Matic has also started educating the Chinese on machines manufactured and supplied by them.

“Though it is difficult to judge the growth rate in percentage but I’m certain that there has been an astounding growth in the Indian market,” Parikh concluded.

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.
