Provin closes deal for four RMGT presses

RMGT sales boost in India after Printpack2019


RMGT’s Indian distributor, Provin Technos, has finalized four orders for RMGT presses — RMGT 760ST-4XL, 790ST-4XL+IR+OC+SLD, 920ST-4+CD, and 920ST-5+IR+CC+SLD. Following sales negotiations at Printpack 2019, which took place in February 2019 in Delhi/NCR, Provin finalized deals for five RMGT presses during April and May 2019.

Among the four orders from India, RMGT’s important client, Progressive Printing Press based in Surat, India, installed the first 924(4-D) in August 2015, the second

920ST-4+IR+OC+SLD in November 2016, and the third 760ST-5XL in May 2017, replacing its existing Komori Lithrone 440 press. The company mainly prints brochures of Indian national costumes. Based on their experience of Provin’s professional and technical support and printing production efficiency of RMGT presses, they have decided to purchase their fourth RMGT press, 790ST-4XL+IR+OC+SLD in April 2019.

Progressive invested in RMGT presses within the last 4-5 years with expectations of increased printing productivity. The company was awarded as the most successful small-medium printing enterprise in India, in 2017. Currently, Progressive is listed among the top 100 largest printing companies in India.

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.
