Rajhans Enterprises: Stepping into label printing

INDIA. The Bengaluru- based group which prints 45 monthly titles, six weekly titles and a raft of newspapers and monocartons is all set to make a foray into the label print segment. Rajhans has ordered two Gallus ECS 340 with a configuration of 12-colour along with online UV, cold foiling, screen printing and die-cutting.

This order also includes a six-colour Heidelberg XL 75 printing press with online UV coating and four interdeck dryers. In addition, there is a nine-colour gravure printing press from Expert with turnbar and other equipment. Akash Balachand ra, Director and second generation at Rajhans Enterprises, said, »We want to make our company a one stop solution for our customers.

With fewer numbers of label printers in the Southern region of India, we saw this as an opportunity for us to enter this segment. With this investment, we are strengthening our services to our existing packaging clientele. Being a new segment, we have a lot to do in this part.«. The first Gallus is supposed to be commissioned before the end of this, and the second in the first quarter of next year.

The Heidelberg is expected to be delivered in the first month of next year. A. Balachand ra, Printer and Publisher, Rajhans Enterprises, said, »My son Akash has recently joined the business and the packaging printing segment will be handled by him. We have ordered equipment of INR 26 crore (260 million) and plan to add more equipment for label production.« The plant will be operational by the first quarter of 2014.
