M K Packaging was launched by business partners Tarun Jain and Tarun Vohra as a packaging enterprise in Delhi’s Naraina Industrial Area in the year 2017. The company, which started operations with a Chinese rigid box-making machine, has expanded to cartons, commercial printing, and corrugated boxes.

The firm installed a brand new Komori Enthrone 429 in December 2023 to expand into commercial printing. M K Packaging is mainly doing job work for advertising agencies for magazines, brochures, catalogs, pamphlets, manuals, stickers, and leaflets.

Speaking on the recent Komori installation, Jain said, “The Komori machine helped us to move our printing operations in-house. It is economical and efficient in printing. Komori’s service is also excellent with its reliable and well-trained service professionals.”

Jain is not new to Komori machines. He worked under the guidance of his uncle from Anupama Printers in the Naraina Industrial Area from 2005 to 2017 before the company’s operations were shifted to Gurugram. Jain’s uncle owned the printing press since 1972 and he learned the ABCs of the printing and packaging industry from him. Apart from the Komori machines, M K Packaging has two single-color Heidelberg machines for its printing operations.

M K Packaging is operating out of an area of approximately 10,000 square feet in Naraina. Its centrally located space ensures it is easily accessible for nearby printers and there is no problem in procuring raw materials. The firm is mostly into job work in the Naraina Industrial Area but also supplies cartons and corrugated boxes to Kolkata, Roorkee, Kundli in Sonepat, apart from exporting to Denmark.

Crompton Greaves, Bajaj, Havells, and Prestige are some of the 30 companies to which M K Packaging supplies cartons and corrugated boxes. M K Packaging uses local manual die-cutting, pasting, and stitching machines for its packaging operations. Going further, Jain plans to install a Komori Lithrone 540 to enhance his operations in the near future.

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.
