Pune-based Pratham Technologies has notched up good deals during the first two days of Printpack 2019, and the company expects to close the show with deals close to Rs 2 crores.

“The first day was a little slow and we did sales of Rs 15 lakhs. The second day was much better, and we almost doubled the sale compared with the first day. We did sales of Rs 28 lakhs on the second day. On the third day we are sure to do good business as well. In fact, we are hopeful of doing good business on all the days,” says Sham Desai of Pratham Technologies.

At Printpack 2019, Pratham is displaying its outsert folding machine, an 8+8 folding machine, a super mailer and IPV Proofcheck software.

The company has managed to close deals for all the products on display except the outsert folding machine. According to Desai, if the company manages to book a deal for the outsert machine at the show, then final sales figure may go above Rs 2 crore as well.

“Our outsert folding machine is the only product on display for which we have not signed any deal. We were able to sell the outsert folding machine at the previous Printpack and we are hopeful that we will book an order this time as well,” Desai says.

Finally, talking about the response the company got on the first two days of the show, he says, “Printpack has always been a very good show for us, and the 2019 edition has also begun on a positive note for us. We are very satisfied with the response we have got in the first three days.”

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.
