According to Vinay Kaushal of Provin, the three running presses include one brand-new RMGT 920-5 plus coater UV press with multi-wavelength LED UV, one refurbished Ryobi 3304 HA press and one Ryobi 3302 press. “Both the used presses have been completely refurbished at Provin’s refurbishing facility in New Delhi,” Kaushal said.
Kaushal said exhibiting in a trade show is very important as it gives a company access to a big audience in a single location. At the same time, he said, it is important to identify the importance of the trade show. “While exhibiting, our primary goal is to make the mass audience aware of what we are offering and how it can help a customer grow in business. We believe that a customer’s growth is our growth,” he said.
Provin had a fruitful journey since PrintPack 2015. During the time, the company’s installation base rose from five to 43. “The printer community has accepted the RMGT brand well. At PrintPack 2015, we displayed the first generation upgraded version of the 920 series and the first LED UV press in India,” Kaushal said.
The RMGT 920 five colour with coater press is from the family of the popular 36-inch press. During the show, the press will run live with the new development of multi-wavelength LED UV system capable of curing conventional UV inks. Again, this is a first in India.
The time around, Provin has booked a stall 100 sq/mt larger (250 sq/m) than the stall it had in 2015.
“Provin Technos is always in favour of profitability of printers. That’s why we ensure value for money with the proven and latest technologies for wastage reduction, reduced space and power requirement. A print company’s growth depends on the profitability of the operation, and the prime focus of RMGT products is the same. Thus, our products suit Indian print market requirements,” Kaushal said.
He said understanding the changes and development according to the market requirement is utmost important for any business to survive. “We are lucky to have a principal like RMGT who is constantly on the move and is incorporating new technologies in the product in accordance of the market requirement. As a result, we are able to offer most competitive value for money product to our customers,” he said.
On the year gone by, Kaushal said 2016 was full of turmoil from the beginning. “With Japanese yen shooting up with regards to Indian rupee, the situation was difficult. In spite of it being a Drupa year, sales went down by 10%. Thankfully, the situation improved in the later part of the year and we ended the year with 10% decline. Worldwide, China market continued to affect the sales but the emergence of new markets complimented the shortfall,” said Kaushal.
On the recent domestic economy, he said the effect of demonetisation will be short-term. “I feel the whole exercise of demonetisation will help Indian industry to grow at a faster pace in 2017, specially the second half of 2017. With the money coming in the economy, we expect funding to become liberal, resulting in increased investment,” he concluded.
