The Manroland Sheetfed India team has added Peter Rego as director of Business Development and Rahul Chitkara as its new CFO. Manroland Sheetfed headquartered in New Delhi has been run for the last several years in the country by its managing director Neeraj Dargan. As the company observes the bouyant growth of the Indian carton packaging industry, it is gearing up for the anticipated upsurge in the purchase of new multicolor sheetfed offset presses configured for packaging and also commercial printing in the coming year.

Speaking of the addition of Peter Rego who recently retired from Heidelberg India, after putting in 25 years there as its main offset press sales person, Dargan said, “With his vast experience and knowledge of the sheetfed print Industry spanning more than two decades and a total work experience in capital goods and services of more than four decades, we are confident that Peter Rego will do a great job for Manroland Sheetfed India.”

Rego himself is confident that the revival in the economy and the packaging and even the commercial print industry are just round the corner. He will continue to work from Mumbai and says the market will bounce back in the coming months. He says, “Packaging will once again see an exponential growth. Also along with packaging which is the flavor of the season, with the education system slowly coming back to normalcy and students returning to the classroom, commercial printing and book publishing will see better days within the next few months as well.”

Rahul Chitkara who becomes Manroland Sheetfed’s new chief financial officer is a qualified management graduate with more than a decade’s experience with international business and Manroland Sheetfed India’s operations. Dargan notes that, “With his diversified knowledge Rahul adds immense value to support the company and its customer base.”

Manroland Sheetfed has been growing steadily and has shown good results in the past few years and its new state-of-the-art R700 Evolution press already rolled out globally. Simultaneously, Manroland Sheetfed India is raising its visibility and customer centric operations with better and more efficient after sales service. The company is gearing up to to again spread its wings in the Indian market where it has traditionally enjoyed a strong footprint especially in the packaging market and the first brand new VLF presses sold into the country.

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.
