India's Newest Frontier for Roland 700 EVOLUTION

Leading Indian packaging giant installs the drupa-showcased Manroland Sheetfed flagship.

Faced with bigger job orders, Jash Packaging Co. has turned to Manroland Sheetfed to meet customer demand.

The huge challenge required an aggressive solution, and the company's response was both swift and decisive: they decided to install the first ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION in India.

Founded 25 years ago, Jash Packaging Co. is one of the largest manufacturers of corrugated boxes and offset printing cartons in India, with almost 400 workers and annual sales of around €37 million. It is mainly engaged in two lines of the packaging business - the first is corrugated box making and the other is micro cartons production for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), confectionery and other consumer and industrial products.

Jash Packaging Co. has five production plants spread around Vadodara City in Gujarat state. In the field of mono cartons, it is one of the leading players in India. The company is among the top 5 corrugated box makers in the country.

Many international names and familiar brands are long-term customers. "Why do customers choose us? Because we produce and we assure," says Mr. Ravindra Jash Bhai Patel, the company's owner. According to Mr. Patel, the company's production volume reaches more than 4500 tonnes per month - and keeps growing steadily.

Faced with such a huge production load, it's important for Jash Packaging Co. to improve efficiency and lower the cost of production at the same time. Mr. Patel clearly understands that relying on the world's most advanced printing technology is the only solution. So Jash Packaging Co. decided to become a trailblazer by bring the first ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION eight colours to India.

The brand-new ROLAND 708 UV EVOLUTION will enable Jash Packaging CO. to print extremely high-quality jobs even with short-turnaround time.

Moreover, with the full UV press and the InlineFoiler (which will be installed once the base installation is done), the company can print a larger gamut of colours, create a lot more new applications and produce print jobs never before seen in the Indian market. Undoubtedly, Mr. Patel's company will find itself embracing more business opportunities in the future.

Premium print quality, fast turnaround, highest reliability and the least wastage - all of these attributes of the ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION will help Jash Packaging Co. in many ways. A spike in profits and business is expected as the company reduces production cost, increases productivity and makes itself more versatile with the kind of services it offers.
