Sachin Jain of Deep Trading, said, “We chose Komori four-colour printing press because of higher speed and zero maintenance. Maintenance of pre-owned printing presses is not easy because qualified engineers are more interested in installation rather after sales service.”
The family-owned business was started in 1990 by Pramod Kumar Jain, which is now run with the help of his two sons, Deepak and Sachin Jain.
In its early days, the diary manufacturing company produced account stationary under its brand Deepak. “Accounts stationary and new year diaries are our specialisation. With the entry of computers, accounts stationary has become a dead segment and now we produce diaries and books,” said Jain.
The diary manufacturing company, which produce around 20,000 diaries per day is equipped with a Heidelberg SM 102 six-colour, two two-colour Heidelberg press, one Mitsubishi single-colour. In post press, there are three programmable cutting machines and three paper folding machines (two MBO and one Stahl).
Pre-press is still outsourced but the printing company has plans to invest in to a CTP for its flawless production. “Most of our jobs are of long-run and repetitive so the plate consumption is less and we will be investing in a CTP for flawless production next year,” added Jain.
Jain who is part of the second generation of the business shared, “We have crossed 70,000 sheets in 12-hours’ single shift as an average on the newly installed printing press. There will be at least 50% increment in our production after installing this machine and total conversion of paper will be reaching around 250 tonnes per month.”
A staff of 50 people in an area of 1,0000 sq/m manufactures diaries and books. In future, the company is planning to launch its own children books’ publication house and to install a Komori printing press with a size of 28x40inch to cater to the same. When asked if they would also diversify to package printing in the future, Jain said a firm 'no'.
