During Printpack 2019, New Delhi-based Vijaya Grafiks has signed multiple deals for its folder-gluers. It has sold its folder-gluers to Rajkot-based Skyline Printers, Roorkee-based Blize Printers and Vadodara-based ABS Printers.

Skyline Printers has booked Vijaya Veenine advanced version folder-gluer, Blize has bought a Vijaya regular version folder-gluer for crash lock bottom cartons and ABS has booked a Veenine advanced version as well.

Apart from Blize, which is Vijaya’s existing customer, both Skyline and ABS are new customers for the company.

At Printpack 2019, Vijata Grafiks is showcasing the advanced version of Vijaya Veenine with online Braille embossing and quality assurance system, folder-gluer for crash lock bottom cartons and window patching machine for linear cartons.

“The first three days of Printpack were great for us. We signed three deals and expect to sign two or three more by the end of the show,” said Prashanth Kumar of Vijaya Grafiks.

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.
