The Balachandras are looking out for a label machine, which will allow them to move into the label segment of packaging, a vertical which Rajhans has entered into just few months ago. The junior Balachandra is impressed with the technology on show.

“Changeover time, wastage reduction and print capability on different substrates grab eyeballs,” he says. On Rajhans’ investment Akash says, “We have seen the big presses, but we would like to start slow, maybe a smaller press, before moving over to a combination press.” With the move to labels, Rajhans will be bring all segments of print business under one roof.
