Established in 1999, Mumbai-based Om Vir Print O Pack manufactures, exports and imports die-cutting machines. The company is also into the trading business of these machines. It imports machines from China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea. Om Vir currently imports all the postpress equipment that it sells. At the Printpack India 2019 show, the company has sold four machines, which include its binding equipment, thermal lamination machine and a 3D printer from a Korean manufacturer.
The machines have been sold to a jewelry company based in Mathura. “Participation at Printpack is kind of huge for us. We have a lot of expectations from the show. We know that there is a lot of scope for us to show our machines to a wide customer base and probably crack some deals at the show as well. We are doing our best and have received a number of enquiries so far. All in all, we expect to earn at least Rs. 2 crore through our participation at the show,” says Viren Shah, managing director of Om Vir Print O Pack.
The company shared that it received most enquiries on Sunday, 3 February. Shah said that he was very happy to see the huge footfall at the show and every member of his team was constantly engaged with visitors and potential customers throughout the day. Apart from Printpack, the company has participated in Pamex, Print Fair and Print Expo in the past.
“The printing industry has a lot of potential. India has a huge population and the country is full of opportunities. I believe that there is immense scope here and we’re very optimistic right now. We ended 2018 on a high note and we expect 2019 to be as auspicious as the last year. The financial position in the industry is not well balanced and hence the condition is a little bleak. Nevertheless, with the enquiries we’ve received at Printpack, we think the demand has not yet died,” Shah concludes.
