Talking about the event, Patel shared said that PrintPack has been a favored venue for his company as it has always led to significant gains in terms of closing profitable deals. This time, too, he expects good results, with many enquiries pouring in for Maxima HS 1020. He shared that the show has acted as a catalyst for the company to get repeat orders and also new orders from references by existing customers.
With reference to the impact that demonetization has had on the company, Patel said that they were marginally affected as it disrupted the loan lending process for two months. Since the machines sold by Excel are expensive, buyers normally have to depend on bank credit to buy them. However, according to him, the situation is getting back to normal. Currently, the company is growing at 30% annually.
