Naraina-based Polykam Offset bought its third Komori 5-color sheetfed offset press with inline coater in a span of just 4 years. The trust and reputation of Komori built with Polykam Offset over the years made them opt for the new press. At Pamex 2020, Jasveer Singh of Polykam Offset signed the deal to buy a Komori Lithrone G 537 press having a maximum speed of 15000 sph.

“I was facing many challenges with offline coater, which affected my corporate client growth. We primarily supply to the big corporates and with time, our requirement of coating jobs has increased. With the new GL 537 coater, UV-ready press, I aim to diversify my portfolio to different verticals of corporate jobs and also overcome coating hurdles,” says Singh. The GL 537 facilitates printing on plastic, which will be a huge boost to the company. Polycam Offset already has a GL 437 and Enthrone 29.

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.
