Post-Press Company of the Year 2016: Lovely Offset Printers
With eight showrooms for its cards and stationery range, the first-time winner, Lovely, was shortlisted in three categories, picking up this Award by a slender margin, ahead of Kundli-based Replika Press and Bhiwandi-based Print Plus.
As per our auditors, the profit before tax at Lovely has increased by 92.01%. This is the highest in the category for the government-accredited star export house â€“ with almost 75% of books being exported.
The company, which is located on a 23-acre plot, has installed a Horauf round corner case maker and a Line O Matic ruling line, recently. A few years ago, Lovely had installed a 100KW solar plant in its factory. The top management is seeking to set up a 1MW plant in the near future.
K Selvakumar, managing director at Lovely, who has seen the highs and the not so high times, said to PrintWeek India, â€œThe key in this day and age is to produce quality products and quality results. And even though prices are spiralling downward, we are seeing print efficiency increase and improve.â€
Lovely Offset was founded in 1961 by C Kadarkarai. A self-made man, he specialised in printing self-designed papers and wedding cards. Even today, besides boasting of a book factory which looked at converting the low-quality book market into high-quality high-volume, Lovelyâ€™s wedding cards range is very popular in Chennai, Sivakasi, Madurai, and Coimbatore through its own showrooms and 32 franchisees which sell only the Lovely brand. The gen-next has a special mandate: packaging.
A worthy winner.
