Q: What is the update on investments done last year?
Gobind Panjabi (GP): Last year we invested in our pre-press unit with Esko’s Kongsberg XE10 sample maker and Esko’s pre-press workflow. In addition, we also invested in anew Bobst Expertfold folding and gluing machine, a Bobst Novacut die-cutter, a Heiber Schröder window patching and liner machine and Zhongke lamination machine to strengthen our post-press.

Q: What was the strategy behind these investments?
GP: All these investments are a step in the direction to become a full-fledged packaging specialist. We currently specialise in met-pet folding cartons and our product mix includes a large share of cartons for the pharmaceutical segment. Over a period, our client base has expanded in the pharmaceutical and FMCG segments. The adoption of Esko hardware and software solutions and post-press is an attempt to enhance our efficiency in order to drive our growth with the evolving demands of the consumer product companies.

Q: What were your expectations with these machines?
GP: During the last one year, we have pumped in almost Rs 20-crore in a raft of machinery. These include Esko’s Kongsberg XE10 sample maker and Esko’s pre-press workflow, Komori Lithrone LS 32 six-colour plus coater press and a platesetter by Cron. We are expecting almost 50% growth in our revenue for the next financial year.

Q: How has the performance been?
GP: All these machines have proved to be an enabler and have helped us raise our ante. Bagging the Reliance Jio job was a game changer for us. Today, we supply two-lakh Jio sim card kits per day. With Bobst machines, we are able to cater to this quality job effectively and on a timely basis. These investments have helped us to reach out to a wider client base, and enable us to acquire larger volumes of printing and converting.
