Creative Graphics all poised to meet demands of digital flexo boom in India
-invests in CDI Spark 4260 and Suite 10 packaging prepress software ensuring error free, high quality and productive imaging
A prominent Indian prepress shop specialized in flexo and letterpress plate production, Creative Graphics (CG) selected the Esko CDI Spark 4260 plate imager to meet the increasing demand for high quality plates in India’s booming flexo market. The company also invested in Esko’s Suite 10 packaging prepress software to benefit from significant cost savings through the automation of its flexo plate production. Being the first prepress shop in North India investing in a high resolution digital flexo imager, Creative Graphics will be able to offer the highest quality plates to the corrugated, flexible packaging and label markets – all of which are experiencing significant growth in India.
With many large global–brand supermarkets now arriving in India, there is a growing demand for higher quality labels and packaging. The same trend is also being driven by locally produced products made for export. “We see a real investment boom in flexo printing here in India, with lots of new presses being installed. With this boom came a demand for higher quality imaging and print consistency. As we wanted to seize this opportunity and increase our capacity, we decided to go for the best,” said Deepanshu Goel, CEO of Creative Graphics, adding, “Esko is the global standard in digital flexo imaging and was the obvious choice. Their CDIs deliver the highest quality imaging and their high speed capability delivers vast improvements in our shop floor productivity. The proven packaging prepress solutions speed up production and drive down costs – making us more cost-competitive.”
“We see an increasing demand for large format plates for the flexo and corrugated markets in India. Creative Graphics’ confidence in Esko reinforces that we’ve been building digital flexo on a solid platform – the CDI’s – since 1995. We are delighted to partner with Creative Graphics to lead the flexo boom in India,” conveyed Hoshi Deboo, VP Asia Pacific & Japan at Esko.
