“There’s a specific reason for us to invest in the brand new four-colour Komori Enthrone 29 offset press. We had been struggling to manage the quality in packaging printing with some other offset presses of different brands earlier. However, we couldn’t get what we expected or what our customers desired. So, we started to look for the right offset press that could meet our needful packaging print outputs. Our hunt halted at Komori where we found the Komori Enthrone 29,” Devendra Singh, CEO of Devendra Photostat & Lamination, said.                         

He added, “Our offset printing division is equipped with two pre-owned offset presses which failed to maintain the quality and consistency in packaging printing. That’s why we invested in the brand-new Komori Enthrone 29, which has resolved all our issues and problems related to maintaining and enhancing overall quality and consistency in printing and production of packaging print graphics.” 

When it comes to its diverse printing and production divisions, Devendra Photostat has a digital printing division equipped with a line of high-end Ricoh, Canon, and Konica Minolta digital colour production presses. In addition, the company engages in digital large-format printing too — for which a separate division has been set up with the installations of Roland and some other key machines. Likewise, the company boasts of its packaging printing division, because it has now upgraded to a new level with the brand new Komori Enthrone 29. 

Since its establishment in 1996 as a reprographic shop engaging in photocopy, lamination and such tasks, Devendra Photostat has gone into paradigm shifts of expansions in terms of machine portfolios, manpower and others. “Our overall business started to take big turns right from 2011 onward as we have been aggressively investing in new machines and equipment since then,” Singh said. 

Some usual end-products of the company are catalogues, booklets, leaflets, flyers, brochures, pamphlets, calendars, mailers, business cards, etc offered at economical rates.

Assisting Singh, his son Mr Rithik Khokhar is now at the helm of Devendra Photostat. “I look after the printing and production activities of our offset division where we have upgraded the machine portfolio with the new Komori Enthrone 29,” Rithik Khokhar, managing director of Devendra Photostat, said. He added, “Following the installation, we are empowered to buff up quality in various aspects, particularly in mono carton printing and production.” 

The Komori Enthrone 29 embodies leading-edge features and technologies designed to handle sheet thicknesses from 0.04- up to 0.6-mm and a maximum sheet size of 530x750-mm. It is configured with double-size impression and transfer cylinders to ensure consistent performance on short runs of a diverse mix of jobs. With its workforce of 60 people, Devendra Photostat & Lamination has set a new benchmark in high-quality packaging printing with the new Komori Enthrone 29.
