Faridabad-based Ronald Web Offset is an in-house manufacturer of paper carry bags since the pandemic year 2021. It brings a total solution for square bottom paper carry bags, showcasing the Ronald 450 and 360 machine at PrintPack India 2022.

Ronald Web Offset provides a comprehensive solution for creating paper bags in-house, from printing to pasting, and fastening of handles. There are various Chinese machines available in the market for creating paper bags, but what makes Ronald stand apart is its make-in-India machinery. The firm gives competition to Chinese manufacturers. In terms of costs, both Chinese and Indian machines are comparable. However, Ronald claims its equipment offers excellent service and response times. Indian clients are increasingly opting for locally produced machines,” says Adithya Gupta, director of Ronald Web Offset.

The company uses Pidilite adhesives for pasting the carry bags, while also sourcing adhesives from local Delhi vendors. Ronald sold three machines – two in Kerala and one in Sonipat till the fourth day of PrintPack. It also manufactures the V-bottom paper carry bag machines – two of these machines are installed in Rajkot and Mumbai, respectively.

When it comes to the visitor response at Printpack, Gupta adds that the number of visitors is much more significant than in the last edition. “From our perspective, the expo has been a huge success,” he exclaims.

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.
