A dream project and a relentless two-year pursuit in setting up the 1,53,000 sq/ft facility at Mallarabanavadi, Nelamangala in Bengaluru, have made Brilliant Printers an “all under one roof” book plant. The company deploys modern, sensible technology that delivers consistency in quality and delivery, and exports to more than 70 countries. Plus, Brilliant prints Bibles in more than 50 world languages.
A growing business – Brilliant’s gross sales increased by 36.54% to Rs 42.6 crore and a profit before tax by a whopping 477.05% compared to last year – all is a result of a company that was willing to change. It has put in place a process to make the decision faster so that there is no gap between final delivery and commitment.
PrintWeek India, like many, is stunned to see the transformation two years after Anil Rego, the managing director at Brilliant, had discussed a bare floorplan with the team. It is amazing to see the meticulous attention that has gone towards designing the floor layout and the work done to make “the operations” a reality. “A truly breathtaking sight” to see a sprawling book factory with a linear horizontal workflow without any material lying around. The process, seamless and efficient.”
Brilliant is a master in printing on thin paper. They print on as thin as 28 gsm opaque tissue paper, which is most suitable for printing voluminous texts in Bible printing and dictionaries. It is a complex process to handle and print on such thin papers. “Bible printing operation is an art. Complexities include precise controlling of print margins, ink density and uniform spread across the page and the opacity of printed matter” says Rego.
Kudos to the Brilliant team, and a family of 400 people, for becoming the first among the best print SMEs in India. Truly brilliant!
