Krishnamurthy G, managing director, Rajshree Offset, said, “After we planned our investment, we did extensive research on the machines available in the market. We found that DGM’s Technocut 105 and Technofold 1100 PC are the best suitable models for our operations”
Krishnamurthy also considered the total cost of ownership (TCO) during the lifetime of the machine. “The DGM machinery always has the least TCO, which is important for us, as higher TCO will eat into our profits,” he said. “We are more than happy with the training and services provided by the DGM India.”
He added that DGM engineers were friendly and competent to train the shopfloor operators to run the equipment at efficient levels. “We had good support from DGM during our installation process and also during the commercial production,” he said.
The company is using the Technofold 1100 PC for three-ply cartons, mono cartons, which are straight line, lock-bottom, double wall, conical cartons, CD covers, RSC boxes, and others.
Krishnamurthy said after the installation, the company’s production capacity has increased, along with improved quality output. “Our customers are happy because we are now able to service our customers in a short time. Now, we confidently accept all kinds of complicated jobs, as we are able to produce such jobs on our Technofold,” he said.
Mr. Krishnamurthy started Rajshree Offset as a screen printer in 1990. From then on, the company has grown substantially and now operates under a 45,000-sq ft built up area. It has also grown from screen printing to supplier of high quality three-ply corrugated boxes and mono cartons.
The company supplies these cartons to readymade food, FMCG, pharma and engineering goods segments. Krishnamurthy said the company has been seeing a rise in demand for packaging in engineering goods, pharma, food and FMCG.
Krishnamurthy and his wife are the managing directors of the company and their son Gaurav looks after the organisation and production. Around 250 people work in various middle and entry level positions.
Besides the new investments, the company’s shopfloor houses a Mitsubishi six-colour press, an automatic die-cutter from Ijima, and other kit such as fluting machines, flute laminator, window patching machines, etc.
Krishnamurthy said the current challenge for the company is the unprecedented increase in the raw material prices.
He added that with the new investment, the company is expecting a growth of around 10-12%. “We made the investment to increase our capacity as well as our capabilities. Our ROI is easily achievable because the DGM machines are reasonably priced and they have met our production requirement,” he said.
He added, “We believe we are prepared for the growing market with our latest investments. We have also trained our people for the changing requirements of our customers.
