Located strategically at Sahid Nagar, Auro Graphics in Bhubaneswar is a commercial graphic printing corner popularly known to its customers for providing high-quality graphic prints. The company has enhanced its quality and capacity following the back-to-back installations of two Ricoh Pro digital production presses from Monotech Systems.

Sanjog Mahapatra, proprietor of Auro Graphics, says, “After going through certain ups and downs in business over the last three decades, we have finally escalated to a new level today. In this endeavour, we would proudly say that our purchase of the two Ricoh Pro digital production presses – Ricoh Pro C7200x and Ricoh Pro 8300S, simultaneously from Monotech Systems, has tremendously changed the way we print and produce graphics in terms of quality, speed, flexibility and innovation.”      

Established in the year 1993, Auro Graphics has been a widely popular commercial printer, not only in Bhubaneswar but all over Odisha. “We started as a small reprographic shop equipped with just some entry-level multi-function digital presses. However, over the course of time we have never restrained in making our best effort to expand and strengthen our infrastructure and staff strength,” Mahapatra says.

“We had been in pursuit of a digital production press when we started receiving demands for high-volume & quality prints from our customers from different sectors, which include education, retail as well as mid-agencies that come to us for job works. Our quest ended at Monotech Systems where we finally embarked upon the Ricoh Pro C7200x and Ricoh Pro 8300S. We decided to purchase both the color and black & white production presses for changing our entire printing eco-system,” he says.

Auro Graphics offers whole range of commercial prints and graphics comprising fliers, leaflets, corporate brochures, product catalogues, business cards & so on. A team of 10 experienced printing professionals handles the company’s overall printing and production tasks undergoing at its production setup where equipped the two key Ricoh Pro digital production presses. “When we decided for Ricoh Pro 8300S monochrome press, we immediately developed the idea of adding the colour production press too for changing the way we produce ‘colour’ graphic prints,” says Mahapatra.     

Mahapatra said the Ricoh Pro C7200x digital colour production press empowers them to produce high quality graphics to impress customers. “This digital press is one of the main factors that boost our business to another level, fulfilling customers’ ever increasing demands for high-quality prints and meeting tight deadlines. We are really happy and satisfied with the machine’s overall potential and advanced features.”

“Of course, the Ricoh Pro C7200x is indeed a workhorse capable to gallop at the speed of 85 ppm (pages per minute). It’s excellent in taking up a broad range of light and heavyweight stocks up to 360 gsm. With the Pro C7200x we now raise the bar on quality printing and it makes us apart among our market competitors. In addition, we are thankful to Monotech Systems for the machine and their all-time unprecedented after-sales service,” Mahapatra says.

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.
