Provin partners with DGM

India, Nepal, Bangladesh


Provin Technos, distributor of RMGT sheetfed offset and Rotatek label printing presses in India has partnered with Diversified Graphic Machinery (DGM) for representation of the company in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. DGM has already installed around 40 systems for cold foil and cast and cure around the world. DGM’s product range includes –DGM Foildex, a cold foil application system; DGM Filmdex, a UV cast and cure application system; and DGM Iijima, Saroglia, Majestica, hot foil stamping,embossing and high-speed diecutting presses. DGM has a manufacturing unit in Italy and holds the patent for a unique technology in cold foiling with indexing.

Speaking about the partnership with DGM, Vinay Kaushal, managing director at Provin, says, “We are very optimistic about the development and it might be a game-changer in coming days. The response at Pamex 2015 was way beyond our expectation where we displayed product samples produced by in-line cold foil and cold foil with UV cast and cure from DGM.”

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.
