On 30 April 2021, Re India celebrated its tenth anniversary. The company says that when it started up in Ahmedabad in 2011, the Indian market was beginning to grow at a breakneck pace. The original joint venture with Shilp Gravure was called ReShilp till 2017 when the structure changed and accordingly the name of the company was changed to Re Equipments India.

Operations began with 12 employees occupying 1,500 square foot premises and within five years had to migrate to a space of 8,800 square feet with a strength of 32 people. Re India achieved a turnover of Rs. 10 crore in 7 years and has now reached a turnover of Rs. 15 crore. It recently added another 800 square foot space for sales and service. Re India has established its brand in several products and accessories that are crucial for the packaging industry but also in other industry segments with its web tension control and web guide systems and pneumatic shafts.

On the tenth anniversary, both employees and customers have given positive testimonials on the ease of working for and with the company and its products. On the occasion, Re India’s general manager SK Shah, reflects, “Creating Brand awareness itself was the most challenging task for which aggressive fieldwork was required and having reached a turnover of Rs. 15 crore the company will definitely grow looking at its established brand for several products.”

Bharat Shah the CEO of gravure press manufacturer Pelican, a Re India OEM customer, says, “Overall, all our machines equipped with Re products perform very well. The maintenance is very low and the service we receive from the Re India team is excellent.”
