Team Pamex in Punjab

During its general body meeting, the Association of Printers organized a seminar on the protection and preservation of the environment. The seminar was held at Batala Club on 18 August 2019 under the chairmanship of Hardip Singh Bhatia, president. Kamal Chopra, chairman of Pamex, was the chief guest. More than 85 printers from the city and surrounding areas attended the meeting.

S Harbakhash Singh, former president of the association, presented the environment issue and said that to ensure a sustainable future, one must assume responsibility for one’s actions and commit to create positive social and environmental changes. He suggested that education is the key to make it happen. Small adaptation in lifestyle can contribute towards the shrinking of carbon footprints.

S Gurmukh Singh presented a talk on water pollution and said that all of us are responsible for it. According to him, the groundwater is being affected because of our lifestyle. There is a need for rainwater harvesting, and at the same time, the system of irrigation needs to be altered. “We must take a lesson from Israel and start drip irrigation everywhere, which will not only save the water but is the proved best way of cultivation,” Singh said.

In his presentation, Chopra stressed the need to work together in a cluster and adopt the latest techniques and machinery to remain competitive in the market. he said that producing in largest quantities at minimum cost, and reducing waste is the only secret of success. Survival depends on either working together or creating something different to remain unaffected from the global competition. Chopra suggested the means and methods to produce innovatively using the present machines and materials to face the growing competition. He also stressed on the need to visit exhibitions and trade shows. Exhibitions are like knowledge centers, where one can learn the latest techniques and ways and means to withstand the increasing competition, he said.

Among others, the meeting was also attended by Barinder Singh, Chander Trehan, Manoj Khanna, Ishu Malhotra, Sarabjit Singh, Kamal Kumar, Suresh Kumar, Ravi Kumar, Kapil Chopra, Jairaj Singh, Sahil Khanna, and Kasturi Lal. All the members were presented with mementos and Hardip Singh Bhata was declared the winner of the punctuality gift.

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.
