Kolhapur-based web offset press manufacturer Sigmarq Technologies will be participating for the first time at the upcoming Printpack 2019. Situated in the Five Star MIDC, about 30-minute drive from the city of Kolhapur, Sigmarq has been making a mark for itself in the web offset industry. Managed by two veterans of the industry, Rajesh Ghorpade and Pradeep Shirale, the young company now caters to some of the well-known names in the newspaper industry.
At Printpack, the company will be displaying its flagship product Crusader towers along with its accessories like motorized ink zone control system and sneak type webbing up system. However, there will be no live demonstrations, Ghorpade says.
“Since this is our first Printpack exhibition, we wish to meet all interested parties. It is the biggest show in India which carries its legacy as authenticity, so it is an important show for us,” he adds.
Sigmarq achieved success with its autopasters and progressed to making towers and folders in 2012. In 2014, it launched the Crusader brand of towers. Some other customers that Sigmarq caters to are Ennadu, Gujarat Mitra, Malayala Manorama, and Daily Thanthi, among others.
