Line O Matic celebrates silver jubilee

Modernize the old-age machinery to new-age technology-driven machinery

Line O Matic
Line O Matic is celebrating its silver jubilee.

Walking down memory lane, our journey initially began under the banner of the GGI (Gunvantray Graphic Industries) brand. While the company’s official entrance into this field was marked 25 years ago, one can trace back our expertize to over 50 years ago. Later in 1997, the company was registered under a new name, Line O Matic, by Uday Patel. The aim was to become an industry leader in producing top-notch exercise notebook machinery. And to achieve this feat, we leveraged technological advancements to provide superior products and high-quality services. Attaining 100%, customer satisfaction drove the company always to outdo everyone’s expectations.

As the years progressed, so did our journey from old-age machinery to new-age technology. The automatic machines helped adjust to the versatility of paper requirements for the paper converting and packaging industry.

Our constant efforts to achieve perfection have brought us this far. Today, Line O Matic has earned its name in the market as a professional company and a pioneer in manufacturing state-of-the-art machinery for paper stationery, paper converting and packaging industry. What enables us to be a market leader and drives us is our understanding, expertise and focus on customer needs by adopting a sustainable approach.

The company has garnered ample accolades in the last two and a half decades while achieving numerous milestones. Having installed over 3000 machines in over 75 countries, the company strives to constantly push boundaries and set brilliant benchmarks along our journey to success.

Our biggest motivating factor is our customers and vendors. Their unwavering support has driven us to keep working harder and coming up with innovative solutions that don’t just match their requirements but also supersede their expectations.

Everyone’s contribution is the key to our success, and therefore, we earnestly acknowledge the part each of you has played to make our journey memorable.

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.
