The company specialises in folding carton, wet glue and self-adhesive labels and is equipped with three offset, including a Heidelberg and Manroland multi-colour presses and three Mark Andy flexo presses.

“We have quite a big chunk of work which is typically in the 1,000 metre range,” said Rajeev Chhatwal, director at Kwality. “We are also looking to expand our portfolio by offering new products to our existing clients, as well as add more clients.”

Established by Chhatwal’s father late Narinder, Kwality began as a paper cup manufacturer in 1962. Over the years, the company added labels and folding cartons to its portfolio. Today, the business is managed by Chhatwal and his son, Krish who entered the business five months ago.

The company converts around 6-lakh sq/m of labels and around 80 tonnes of paperboards per month. Besides, the presses the company has Kodak pre-press kit for both offset and flexo operation, and print enhancements like foil stamping, embossing, textured varnishes and screen effects are produced using equipment from Germany and the US. A Rotoflex machine inspects the products for quality.

The Xeikon 3030Plus four-colour plus white dry toner-based press is capable of delivering 1,200dpi prints at a top speed of 15 metres per minutes; allows use of substrates without specific pre-treatment.

“With the Xeikon 3030Plus, we have brought all the three operations in house,” said Chhatwal.
