New Delhi-based Arihant Offset has installed a brand new WB@2500 six-clamp perfect binding machine manufactured by Impel-Welbound in Bengaluru.

Founded in 1998 by Anil Jain, the offset printing unit located in Nazafgarh Road focuses primarily on large Government tenders, across India, with a specific interest in textbooks.

“As some of the jobs that we undertake are of huge volumes, sometimes there is huge pressure on capacities. We also cannot build fresh capacity as some of these jobs are seasonal or once in a while. We have additional print partners in NCR and Mathura who help us in times of such capacity requirements”, said Anil Jain.

“We have always met our customer requirements, be it on turnaround times or quantity or fulfilment. Our USP is- be it one thousand books or one million, we will produce and deliver it, anywhere in India,” he added.

The sprawling 40000 sqft plant is equipped with a wide range of pre-press and post-press equipment apart from a raft of presses.

Talking about some of their challenging jobs, Jain said, “ We are especially proud of a book made for the ministry of agriculture, from design to delivery in 72 hours. There is also a 65 million books order for a textbook corporation, which was delivered in 60 days from the date of order.”

“And not to forget when Punjab Technical University wanted six lakh answer sheets within one week, they relied on Arihant to fulfil the order, and we promptly delivered them,” he added.

“As they are used to meeting such near-impossible deadlines when they ordered a machine, they wanted it installed within 10 days. We had just done such a task recently for another customer and that gave us the confidence”, said Anil Kumar, director sales of Impel-Welbound.

“From the time of discussions, order finalisation to installation, we found the Impel team to be professional. One of the top reasons we opted for WB@2500 is that we wanted to insource some of our critical jobs that are high value,” said Jain.

“Apart from the top quality finishing, the MIS feature of the machine was something that impressed us. As we cater to tenders that are time-bound, the information of production and cost parameters on a daily/periodic basis is helping us immensely to track the status of the jobs,” he concluded.

This is one of the seven WB@2500 perfect binders installed by Impel-Welbound in NCR region so far, since partial lifting of lockdown in the area since May 2020.
