Majan Printing & Packaging is one of the largest packaging printers in the Middle East, located in Ras Al Khaimah, in the United Arab Emirates about 120 kilometers north of Dubai. The company established in 1996, and in just 20 years, it has become the largest duplex board converter in the Gulf region.

Today Majan represents one of Manroland Sheeted distributor Dynagraph’s significant customers. It has purchased sixteen Manroland Sheetfed presses since 1996, with a combined total of more than 50 printing units. The new R707 LV Evolution Hybrid was delivered and installed at the modern Ras Al Khaimah plant in June 2020.

With its latest offset press automation features, accessories, and an innovative software package, the new press offers higher productivity and reliability for a more comprehensive array of monocarton applications and value adds using both UV and conventional curing and printing. The faster job turnarounds and with less waste increase Majan’s opportunities to enhance profitability and competitiveness. The automation that helps to decrease errors and waste can help to control or reduce operating costs.

The R707 Evolution was delivered elevated by 667 mm with combi-ink rollers and the latest interdeck and UV end dryers with a precision sheet guiding technology that improves operating efficiency, and suction belts replacing traditional suction rollers. The ability to grip paper over a larger area delivers more precise control over paper feeding and greater control of sheet braking even at high speeds.

A full-service program The ProServ 360° Performance Package is part of the purchase. This service program includes regular remote and on-site diagnostic checks to detect and deal with potential problems with the press in advance. This ensures achieving the promised performance levels and helps manage operating costs.

Majan Printing & Packaging is a sophisticated packaging printer and converter with the requisite certifications and technology capabilities of any leading monocarton provider globally. It has all the cartons enhancements from coatings, to embossing and foiling with the latest converting and value addition technologies from the leading suppliers without compromise.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
