Edayar, Ernakulam-based Rajsree Industrial Printer, has invested in a new high-speed folder gluer from Bengaluru-based SSA Amrutha Folder Tech to churn out high-end duplex mono cartons. The machine was inaugurated by the company’s chairman K Gopalakrishnan Nair in the presence of partners and entire staff on 20 May 2022. It has been operating at the shop floor since then.

Located in the industrial hub of Kerala, Rajsree commenced commercial production in July 1997. The unit has established itself a name in multicolour printing of labels, brochures, danglers, calendars and other publicity materials such as posters and point-of-display materials.

The company caters to many advertising companies in addition to major industrial units and export units. The clientele is spread from Trivandrum to Kannur district and “the unit has a very high retention level of customers”, according to Rajesh G, managing partner of Rajsree.

“Installing the high-speed carton folder gluer with high pressure electronic spray nozzle with many other add on features will help increase the production of duplex cartons and improve the quality as well. To meet the present market challenges and further improve the quality of printed products, timely investments are always made by Rajsree Industrial Printer to offer the clients the high-end quality by maintaining the precision of each printed job,” says Rajesh.

The unit recently added one Polar Mohr EM paper cutting machine and is planning to install a window cum plain wet lamination machine from Hy Tek Print Mac, Bengaluru. “These machines are installed as part of adopting new technologies,” he adds.

Rajsree usually prints commercial jobs such as brochures, calendars, posters, pamphlets, danglers. However, it is now focusing on packaging, especially mono cartons, and labels. Apart from the newly added folder gluer, the unit has a Mitsubishi 1000 LS printing machine, KBA Rapida five-colour printing machine, Horizon paper folding machine, Polar cutting machine, die cutting machines, wet lamination machines, and for special effects, the unit has gold foiling and knurling machines.

The family-owned business is managed by three partners. While K Gopalakrishnan Nair is the chairman, Rajesh oversees production, marketing and future expansion; his wife, Jean Rajesh carries out various administrative duties.

“The dedication and quality consciousness has resulted in the firm winning the National Award for Excellence in Printing (NAEP) unfailingly over several consecutive years. The prestigious award is recognised by the Government of India and appreciates the best efforts of the printing industry from all over the country,” says Rajesh. Additionally, the firm has also won the Kerala state award, Kerala Mudrana Puraskaram, over several years.

“Rajsree Industrial Printer is striving to create a dedicated workforce to bring about further developments in the industry and at the same time ensuring the best quality products for the market,” says Rajesh. “Delivering prompt quality service to the client is our motto.” 

Rajsree Industrial Printer is also a member of Kerala Master Printer Association (KMPA) for the last 23 years. Rajesh is an active member of KMPA and the current vice president (central) of the association and a governing council member of All India Federation of Master Printers.
