20 installations last year

“We had adopted a strategy of silent growth all this while considering the turbulence in the market. However, we are confident of the Horizon brand and the products it is offering. In fact, we have doubled our turnover year-on-year with Horizon from the time we started the partnership with the Japanese book finishing specialist in 2016,” said Om Prakash, managing director, ePrint Machinery.

The recent product from its Horizon line-up is a round pile folding machine.

“The reception for the round pile folding machine, which we introduced recently, has been encouraging. We have so far completed two installations and hope to sign up a few more in the coming months,” add Prakash.

The company also completed the installation of a rotary die-cutter from Horizon, which is the first of its kind in India.

“Last year saw our company move forward in a completely new direction with us setting foot in untapped Nepal and Bangladesh markets. The response has been very good and we see these markets to have huge potential for us,” explained Prakash.

With eight and four installations so far in Nepal and Bangladesh respectively, Prakash believes the company can match that numbers in less than six months of 2019.

“We did little more than 20 installations last year and we are quietly confident of doing 50% more this year and push forward the agenda for our smart finishing solution which would one massive end-to-end automated system,” he added.

The company's own eCut cutting machines have also been making solid grounds with almost 20 machines being installed so far, with 11 in India, four in Nepal and two each in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

“The eCut is a premier print finishing machine and in spite of the competition we continue to sell them successfully because most of company don't mind paying for quality and service,” he concluded.
