Fujifilm Sericol India, based in Pune, participated in Screentex India, which took place for the first time in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Fujifilm Sericol India, being an integral part of Fujifilm Ink Speciality Group, offers dry offset inks for printing on plastic containers and sheetfed offset inks for printing on all kinds of plastic substrates. It provides inks for verticals such as textiles, sports shoes, bags, helmets, and decals. The company asserts that the inks used in all the speedometers manufactured in the country are made by Fujifilm.

The Fujifilm conglomerate, active in print, healthcare, and cosmetic segments, bought UK-based Sericol in 2005. Fujifilm Sericol is an ink manufacturer for several types of ink technologies, such as inkjet, screen printing, and UV label presses. 

At Screentex, Lasantha Peiris, director commercial at Fujifilm Sericol India, explained that its inks are used for screen, flexo, offset, and digital printing. The company is committed to providing sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions and uses biodegradable inks that are tested by its in-house R&D team in various applications. 

Speaking about the pandemic situation for Fujifilm, Peiris said, “Though our business was low, we ensured that our team was safe. We were managing our customers on calls by working remotely for the few months of the lockdown, and we took care of each member of our team.”

Reflecting on the exhibition, he said, “We are participating in such an exhibition after a gap of around three years, and Screentex India, although small, has the main players here. Kind of a let-out after the pandemic event, we’re getting customers from all over India. It’s a good time to meet our customers, and in this show, we’re talking about our 21 new environment-friendly products.”

 

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.
