(l) Manodra: Prince Graphics has adhered to impossible print and binding deadlines

The 180-staff Prince Graphics turns over Rs 40-cr in a year, and works in two-shift operations in its 24,000 sq/ft factory. Rajesh Manodra, the founder of Prince Graphics said, "The biggest thing for us is time savings. Also, the Bindwel single-clamp occupies very little space." Manodra added, "We chose it to manage our book workload more efficiently. It is a game changer."

Thanks to the Bindwel, Prince Graphics was able to bind 6,000 books per day on the Bluechip. This was a project for Lighthouse Learning (formerly known as EuroKids International Group). The company was founded as EuroKids International in 2001 by Prajodh Rajan and Vikas Phadnis. It entered the K12 segment with a series of EuroSchools in 2009. The total requirement was: 66,000 books - and eleven different types. Prince Graphics delivered the entire order in time.

Rajesh Manodra said, "Prince Graphics has adhered to impossible print and binding deadlines." He points to a project of two lakhs books for Sanofi, the global healthcare and pharmaceutical company.

In addition, there is a special book that the Prince Graphics team is proud to have created. It is the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita.

Meanwhile Bindwel has been in the news for having expanded its perfect binding and book production offering with a fresh acquisition. The Bengaluru-headquartered manufacturer acquired Kerala bookbinding machine maker Imtech to address the requirements of a first-time user of a bookbinding machine.
