Monotech Systems has installed a Ricoh Pro C5310S color digital production press and a Ricoh Pro 8310S monochrome digital production press at Ahmedabad-based Brigar Media.

Established in August 2020, Brigar Media offers digital book printing services and is run by Sagar Shah and Brijesh Panchal, both of whom work as directors. Built as a right-sized solution, the Ricoh Pro C5310s offer a fusion of vibrant color, agile media handling, and a wide range of finishing options.

According to Shah and Panchal, the company opted for the Ricoh production presses for their quality and robustness. Also, the after-sales of Monotech Systems is also a fact that they considered while going for the presses. According to Shah, after-sales service is the biggest challenge in the digital print business.

Shah added that the company went for Ricoh to take advantage of the future of digital printing. “Technically, we were quite sound and by personally taking a trial of the machine, we were able to tackle the challenge,” he said.

Before this investment, the company was using a Konica Minolta 6120. Shah added that with the new investment, the company is able to print on time and is able to satisfy its customers.

“This joint investment will enable Brigar Media to deliver both monochrome and color applications to their customers. Earlier, they used to serve color printing applications from outside but now they will be able to make it in-house. Both the engines are robust productive and offer high quality. We congratulate Brigar Media for their association and their trust in the Ricoh and Monotech Systems,” Akash Kumar, marketing head, Monotech Systems, said.

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.
