The Nilpeter India factory is undergoing expansion, which will result in an increase of production area by more than 20,000 sq ft in the existing factory, thus doubling the manufacturing capacity. Aakriti Agarwal of Labels & Labeling reports.
Manish Kapoor, sales manager at Nilpeter India, “The facility is in the finishing stages and will be ready by the end of the month. We will also have a much larger Technology Center in the new area.”
Nilpeter India installed two flexo presses – both FB-3300S servo presses – in the first quarter of the financial year 2014. One was commissioned at Nitai Press in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and the second at Ajanta Packaging’s plant in the industrial town of Baddi.
Ajanta Packaging placed an order for two Nilpeter presses at LabelExpo Europe 2013. One of them is now running at its factory in Sharjah and the second in Baddi. Following market trends and keeping up with the pace of the evolving industry, the company has installed a 10-colour, fully-loaded press with a gravure unit, cold foil, hot foil, rotary screen, flexo, de-lam, re-lam, and a special attachment for producing coupon labels.
In the meantime, Ajanta Packaging has ordered another Nilpeter FB-3300S servo press for its factory in Daman. Ajanta Packaging will operate a total of six Nilpeter presses across its various plants after this machine is installed in September.
The new factory of Nitai Press also got a fully-loaded 8-colour Nilpeter FB3300S servo press installed in March. Rajan Vyas, owner of Nitai Press, “I opted for Nilpeter because the company has a manufacturing facility in India, so I could go to the factory and see the press running before taking a final decision. The company offers great customer service too.”
Nilpeter Service Engineer, Kumar, “We are happy to have installed these presses successfully at our customers. All our existing customers continue to repose their faith in us by placing repeat orders.”
Further, an 8-colour FB-3300S servo Nilpeter press has been shipped to Miraj Printers in Nepal for security printing. It will be installed by the end of the month. “Two more machines will be installed in India before LabelExpo India, thus taking the tally of sold and installed presses to six in the first two quarters,” says Manish Kapoor.
The company installed six presses in the latest financial year. This year, it would have installed six presses by the end of the second quarter and is aiming to sell and install 12 presses by the end of the 2013/14 financial year.
