Robus sells its machine to Borkar Packaging

Nikhil Borkar and Amol Borkar of Borkar Packaging invest in a Robus machine

Nikhil Borkar and Amol Borkar of Borkar Packaging recently ordered a JC1100 pcw folder-gluer from Robus India. According to them, the key factor behind choosing this machine was its speed and correct formation of complex corrugated and duplex cartons.

These were some compelling factors. There is a lot of competition in the market. In order to survive, we need to produce more and offer products according to the customers’ requirements. We look forward to this alliance and are hopeful that with the newly bought machine, we will be able to increase our productivity and gain profits,” the Borkars said.

Quality is another factor that is extremely vital in this competitive market. In order to survive, the companies not only need to offer timely solutions but also need to make sure that faster delivery doesn’t have an impact on the quality being delivered. “We also don’t want to compromise on the quality and we hope that with this machine, we’re able to deliver what our customers expect from us,” they concluded.


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.
