It is almost four months to the run-up to Drupa 2012, how do you rate your company’s performance in the current scenario?
We are performing and growing. We have achieved 90% growth this year. We are running the unit 24/7 in full capacity.

What investments are you focussed on which you think is a must for your organisation?
We have recently invested in a 32-page folding machine, Teco from Indo-European Machinery. We will continue to invest in press and post-press machine to further strengthen our capacity.

Which product will you invest in to compete at the highest level?
After Drupa we will invest in an additional sheetfed offset press. It will be a Ryobi for offset press but we will also comsider Komori’s new Lithrone. In the post-press category we will invest in Megabound and Macrobond machines.
