At Paperex 2017, Line O Matic received a good footfall with several queries for a number of machines. Multiple machines were booked by customers at the event. Any event or trade show, big or small, has a huge effect on the annual turnover of a company. Realizing the potential of the event, Nirav Parikh, general manager (marketing) quoted, “It is a very important event for everyone from the paper industry. We always manage to grab customers’ attention at such events. This edition of Paperex has been a good one for us as we secured some new customers while our existing client base got familiar with the new products that have been launched by us in recent times. This is a very important platform for knowledge exchange and networking.”
The Far East countries are posing a tough challenge for Indian paper converting machinery manufacturers. These countries manufacture machines for Indian customers which are more or less basic in nature but cater to the demands of cheap and affordable rates. The main challenge for the Indian companies has been to raise their standards and provide the machines at a fairly cheaper rate. Nevertheless, Indian manufacturers have done good so far by restricting the foreign players from participating in the Indian market actively. Lately, Line O Matic has also started educating the Chinese on machines manufactured and supplied by them.
“Though it is difficult to judge the growth rate in percentage but I’m certain that there has been an astounding growth in the Indian market,” Parikh concluded.
