RMGT sheetfed offset press

RMGT stands for Ryobi Mitsubishi Graphic Technology and is represented in India by Provin Technologies. RMGT’s financial year was changed from ending on 31 March to 31 December in 2018. Thus the figures for 2018 pertain to nine months working only. Nevertheless a thoughtful comparison shows that the past year was not as good as 2018 for the company. In India too its number of installation decreased which is similar to each of our five manufacturers except Heidelberg which did better in the current financial year ending 31 March 2020 in comparison to the financial year ending 31 March 2019. RMGT is facing, similar to the other press manufacturers, intense price pressure on its products and like them and the industry and global economy as a whole, the effects of the Coronavirus. However, the company with its 500 employees ranks high on overall viability amongst the global offset press manufacturers.
