Print in Okhla joins hands to create an association

More than 120 commercial and digtal printers, and machine suppliers from the Okhla region in South Delhi converged at Okhla’s Tivoli Royal Court on 30 November 2018 to celebrate the formation of the Okhla Printers and Providers Association (OPPA) – a brand new association for Okhla printers and machine providers. While the association was formed in March 2018, it received the incorporation certificate from the authority on 31 October 2018.

Kamal Malik of Printology addressing the members

MN Pandey of Avantika Printers while speaking exclusively to PrintWeek India said, “OPPA will provide a number of benefits to its members. The association will perform activities that would be unduly costly or time-consuming for an individual company to perform by itself.” Pandey informed this scribe that 125 members have already registered with the association.

Okhla is an industrial suburb of New Delhi in South Delhi and divided in three phases. Presently there are 100 print firms along with a host of MNCs, call centres, BPO, showrooms and media group operations in the area. A senior printer in Oklha said, "There’s a pattern in Delhi. Most print firms are growing, expanding or moving their business. Places like Faridabad, Noida, Greater Noida, Gurgaon, Kundli and Manesar are the new destinations. Things have become dire in Okhla."

That is why the creation of OPPA seems like a boon.
