Om Vir Print O Pack showed its complete range of post-press machines, including collator, binder,  gluing and thermal lamination equipment at last month’s PrintPack India 2022 exhibition in Greater Noida. Established in 1999, Mumbai-based Om Vir Print O Pack manufactures, imports and exports post-press equipment. The trading company imports machines from China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea.

“The company’s products are well priced in the market as we provide service, installation, spare parts and guarantees on our machines. There is a trend shift away from manual operations, even in packaging and businesses are now gravitating toward rigid boxes, screen printing, and gluing machines,” says Viren Shah, managing director, Om Vir Print O Pack.

Printpack brought a substantial number of business visitors and the exhibitors were confident of closing deals at the event. Shah said that the first two days had few inquiries, while the third day saw a spike. Expressing his delight at the large turnout for the expo, he noted that every member of his staff was actively interacting with visitors and potential clients for the entirety of each day.

“There are several opportunities in the printing sector as India is a large nation with many possibilities. I think there’s a lot of potential here, and we’re feeling very good right now. Moreover, based on our inquiries at Printpack, we believe the demand for equipment is still alive and well,” concludes Shah.

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.
