Bosch, in collaboration with Bharath University has opened a training centre in Chennai. Located inside the premises of Bharath University the joint certification centre was inaugurated on 14 March 2016. The event was attended by S Jagatrakshagan, founder chairman, Bharath University; J Sandeep Anand, president, Bharath University; M Pon-
navaikko, vice-chancellor, Bharath University; and Abhijit Kallianpur, senior general manager, Automotive Service Solutions, Bosch India.

Spread across 3,600 square feet, the joint certification centre has been set up to provide quality training to students. The centre will impart training in the areas of diesel systems, gasoline systems, diagnostics,  auto electricals, to name a few. With an aim to impart quality skills that would help the youth of India build a sustainable future, the training material has been developed and provided by Bosch. The centre has been equipped with the latest Bosch equipment, such as, fuel injection test bench, auto electrical test bench, diagnostic scanner, vehicle lift among others. The training centre will provide joint certification programmes to students of Bharath University, technicians and service personnel alike. On an average 100 training programmes will be conducted every year.

Commenting on the inauguration of the technical centre, Vijay Pandey, regional president, Automotive Aftermarket, Bosch, said, “In the Automotive Aftermarket sector, Bosch is among the highest generators of employment. However, given India’s insufficient labour pool there is a need to build on the country’s employability level, the same has also been identified by the Government of India which has initiated the Skill India programme. To address this concern Bosch has collaborated with Bharath University in Chennai to offer quality training programmes. Our joint vision is to ensure the youth of India is able to build a sustainable future.”

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.
