TechNova is one of the only suppliers to the print industry that worked 24/7 and overcame every obstacle to ensure uninterrupted supplies of critical raw material like printing plates, pre-press and pressroom chemicals and digital print media to leading newspapers and publications across the country.

Going beyond, TechNova is now manufacturing NovaShield face shields to help the country fight Covid-19.

CG Ramakrishnan, ex-director and CEO of TechNova, said, “TechNova is committed to support the print industry, as well as the frontline medical professionals and essential services providers across India. We recognised a need for Face Shields, as the first line of defence for the frontline Covid warriors. Our team was quickly able to design and produce an initial batch of face shields and test them with a select group from the medical community and other user segments. Once we had their approval, we decided to go ahead with mass production of the shields.”
