Rain water harvesting, recycling 40 percent of its raw materials, day-light harvesting, maximum savings on energy are some of these initiatives of the company.

Other initiatives include the internal pathways made to reduce temperature and improvement in water retention, while an affluent treatment plant will treat waste water so that no toxic materials are discharged by the plant.

Further to these green initiatives taken by the company, it has also invested in the latest printing and packaging technology.

The latest large for mat Hiedelberg six color press plus coater and Hiedelberg varimetrix flatbed foil stamping and die cutting machine, a new hybrid UV or water based coating machine and a Horizon binding line are also available at the Company’s 100,000 square foot facility.
