At Printpack 2019, Robus announced the sale of its machines to two customers. Veronica Printers based in Haridwar bought a die-cutting machine and a folder gluer from Robus India. Apart from this, another customer named International Paper Products Manufacturing based in Kuwait bought a die-cutting unit, a folder gluer and a flute laminator from Robus India. The company is extremely happy with the service and training support it received from Robus. It is happy with the installation of this machine and says that it has been receiving good returns on the capital investment.

The company went on to say that the Robus team helped them run some of the most critical and complicated jobs on the machine successfully. It is looking forward to working with Robus again.

At the Robus stand at Printpack, we spoke to Prem P Vishwakarma, the director of the company and he said that the show has been extremely successful. “We were new during the previous edition of Printpack. We were interacting with the customers and trying to educate them but this time we have been very busy at the show and have sold 10 machines at the show. Printpack served as the perfect platform for us to meet new clients. We as suppliers got a chance to explain our products to many,” says Vishwakarma.

Faridabad-based Paragon Packagings purchased a JC1100 folder gluer with multiple gluers. The company is in packaging for more than 20 years now. The company began with a small corrugation unit and over a period of time it diversified to printing as well. Apart from this, the company makes monocartons also and to support its monocarton business, the company bought the new folder gluer from Robus. Paragon Packaging will be closing this financial year with 25 crores per annum and aims to go up to 40 crores next year and hopes to achieve the target with the newly purchased Robus machine.

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.
