Sunny Jain of Arihant Printers said, “Komori is tried and tested press for us. We are a Komori house since our establishment in 2006 and running three Komori presses. We have examined a German press before our investment in the latest Komori but we found Komori better than that and our production staff is also familiar with Komori press.”
Sunny Jain is the second generation of the family-owned business. The business was started by his father Dilip Jain few decades ago. “Initially, we were a lamination and UV coating house and used to do lamination jobs and UV coating for printers. We entered in print production because of two reasons: One we were not able to produce best results since printing was not in our control and it was a natural progression too," Jain further added.
Now the family-owned business is run by Dilip Jain and his two sons-Sunny Jain and Sandeep Jain.
Diamond Varnish, the lamination and UV coating company ventured in printing by the name of Arihant Printers in 2006. Now the printing company has the equal share for commercial and packaging print production. Three Komori presses at Arihant include Komori LS432, LS426 and last year installed Komori LS 629.
Arihant has three production facilities in the city, which has a combined area of around 40,000 sq/ft and around 150 people work for the company. The packaging printing company has specialisation in UV printing and consumes 50 kg of printing inks and 200 CTP plates per day.
