Manipal International Printing Press opts for another Lombardi Synchroline flexo press along with Vinsak USAR slitter inspection rewinder

Manipal International Printing Press has opted for another Lombardi Synchroline flexo press along with Vinsak USAR slitter inspection rewinder for its plant in Africa. Vinsak, the exclusive distributor of Lombardi presses in India, the Middle East and Africa, will soon install the 430mm wide, 10-color press at the company’s plant in Nigeria. Manipal is already running a Lombardi press, Vinsak USAR 530 and a thermal inkjet system for variable data at its plant in Kenya.

Started in 1941, Manipal International Printing Press has grown with the times to embrace the latest in technology, and to offer clients quality and punctuality at costs that make business sense. MIPL prints a large variety of products including self adhesive labels of different types, commercial, security & business forms, shrink sleeves, digital publications and all different sorts of printing.

Pritam Choudhary, director at MIPPL says, “Vinsak installed machines at our Kenya plant three months back. The combination of Synchroline with Vinsak USAR has made a lot of our print jobs easier. We were able to print on diverse substrates with a quick turnaround time. The main advantage, however, was that we were able to explore more of Kenya’s packaging market as we can print on 12-micron film to 450gsm boards. We wanted to expand our capacity of the Nigerian printing plant, hence a repeat order to Vinsak.”

Talking of the repeat order by MIPPL, Ranesh Bajaj director at Vinsak said: “It’s a wonderful experience to know that years of planning and efforts have started paying off. We are extremely pleased to receive a repeat order from Manipal. It’s good to see a positive response from printing industry for the Lombardi Synchroline press and Vinsak USAR. We are continuously developing and adding new features to our in-house product with the hope to match the rising expectations of packaging industry from Vinsak.”

A leader in the industry, MIPPL is is responsive to market changes, with a common goal of customer satisfaction and sales growth. A company that brings value to its customers and provides superior returns to investors, MIPPL is the only press in Africa that provides composite packaging solution to its end customers for brand protection, with its R&D team working round the clock to provide customer solutions to protect their brands from counterfeit labels.

As the leading printing solutions provider in Africa, MIPPL aims at giving customers the best printing experience, in terms of product development, product quality, on-time deliveries and improved printing platforms from time-to-time. Hence it was imperative of MIPPL to choose a provider that has a good back end support. Talking of support from Vinsak, Choudhary added: “A machine worth millions becomes useless if you don’t have a good service backup. We are extremely happy with Vinsak for active service and support systems and hope they continue to provide such quality products.”
