Based in Kolhapur web offset press manufacturer Sigmarq Technologies will launch its book printing press by 2020 to meet the strong book market in India, said Rajesh Ghorpade, chief executive of the company, at Printpack 2019.

Today, the company serves the printing industry with its web offset solutions. The company started manufacturing autopostasters in 2011, when few Indian companies did the same. Sigmarq found success with its autoposters and progressed in manufacturing lathes and benders in 2012. In 2014, it launched the Crusader brand of lathes.

“At Printpack, we have met many book printers interested in our solutions. We see a lot of opportunities in the book printing segment and we will be launching a press to meet this demand by next year ”, said Ghorpade.

Pradeep Shirale, executive director of Sigmarq, said many of the visitors the company met were from neighboring Bangladesh. “Markets like Bangladesh are very promising, especially when it comes to book printing. Nepal is also a good market for us.

This is the first time that the company exhibits at Printpack and the two Ghorpade and Shirale says the show was a success.

“Not only did we need a lot of potential customers, but the overall event management by IPAMA is top notch,” says Shirale.

At Printpack, Sigmarq presents its flagship product, the Crusader towers, as well as its accessories such as the motorized ink zone control system and the sneak type strap system. However, there are no live demonstrations.

“We will surely be back for the next edition of Printpack in 2021 and maybe also have a live demo,” says Ghorpade.
