Besides this, in the last one year, the company has added Xerox Versant 80, plus a Duplo 616 for finishing.

“Many corporate houses in Hyderabad are our clients. Our few Clients GMR, NCR, Facebook, Google and we do confidential jobs for governments and educational institutes, among others,” added Akther.
