The India office follows Omet’s recent addition of branches around the world — Omet Americas; Omet Suzhou in China and Omet Iberica in Barcelona. For Omet, India is a growing market where it is well-established thanks to its long-term collaboration with the local agent Weldon Celloplast, who led the installation of over 30 printing machines. The investment in these new Omet offices is aimed at consolidating sales and at increasing the technical customer service.

Many Omet customers attended the presentation of the new offices, including Any Graphics, Zircon and Renault, which already works with several OMET machines. Local printers, suppliers and brand owners took part in the aperitif that introduced the official presentations of the hosts: firstly, Harveer Sahni, chairman of Weldon Celloplast, spoke about the birth of the collaboration with Omet in the 90s, when he met Angelo Bartesaghi, founder of Omet, during his visit to India.

Marco Calcagni, Omet sales and marketing director, spoke about the Omet group and officially introduced his son, Andrea Calcagni, who recently joined the company as international strategy and business development manager, and is currently in India to work with Pawandeep Sanhi to develop the new Omet business in New Delhi. Andrea gave information about the Omet India vision, about the development of Omet’s presence in the Indian subcontinent.

“Omet India with its partners Weldon Celloplast and Printronica has already a team of over 10 engineers on board and started training other Indian engineers to serve its customers around the world,” said Andrea Calcagni. “We are working to make India a centre of competence for global company operations. The work has already begun in that direction.”

“Omet counts many installations in over 100 countries,” added Marco Calcagni, “and we believe that many of these countries can be served directly from India in a better way. This subsidiary will allow Omet to improve its technical service, its technology and focus on new innovations. Omet is investing in the Indian market and is working for both short and long term results.”

Pawandeep Sanhi, managing director of Omet India, concluded the presentation by thanking all the participants: “The new branch is a centre of excellence for Omet that will lead to an improvement of the customised technical service for our partners. Being closer to our customers will help us to understand their needs. We aim to improve the customer experience starting from when the customer places an order until the machine is installed and works at optimal levels, allowing the customer to fully exploit the potential of Omet printing machines, such as performance and production efficiency, while ensuring the highest quality.”
