PAMEX 2017 welcomes Japan Printing Machinery Association (JPMA) on board

Makoto Nishioka from Japan Printing Machinery Association (JPMA) recently visited the Print-Packaging (P) Ltd office at Noida and confirmed its participation at PAMEX 2017 (December 18–21, 2017 at Mumbai).

The JPMA consists of 105 members, mainly the manufacturers and vendors of printing machinery, bookbinding machinery, paper converting machinery and its peripheral equipment.

During his visit, Makoto said, “I’m very optimistic about our (JPMA’s) alliance with All India Master Printer’s Association (AIFMP) and strongly believe that PAMEX 2017 is the right platform to venture in the Indian print industry. The larger Japanese companies from the industry have already marked their presence in India however this would be a great opportunity for the small and medium companies to participate at PAMEX 2017 and explore the Indian market.”

“This would be a great start for co-operation between two associations and we expect much bigger participation from Japan in the coming editions of PAMEX. We would also like to invite PAMEX to have a booth at International Graphic Arts Show - IGAS 2018 happening at Tokyo to further promote the show and attract larger Japanese participation in upcoming editions of PAMEX,” Makoto added.

“In India, the Japanese companies are present in large numbers in pre-press and press segment. No Japanese manufacturer of post press and converting equipment are present in India. At AIFMP we will study and identify what kind of Japanese equipment would be suitable for India in this segment.” said Tushar Dhote, chairman, PAMEX.

While, Sangam Khanna, president, Insight Communication & Print Solutions (which represent KOMORI in India); Sahil Kulkarni, section manager, Sakura International Japan and Anil Arora, president, Print-Packaging.Com (P) Ltd. who are the event managers for PAMEX, were also present for this meeting.
