Screen Print India Exhibition Rewards Collaboration
Safely Minding the Gap Crossing Bridges
Will Barker, Sales Director of Watts Urethane Products Ltd, recently attended the SPI (Screen Print India) Exhibition Show in order to provide support on the stand of our key global and sole Indian distributor, Photokina Chemicals PVT Ltd.
Photokina is a leading manufacturer/distributor for a wide range of screen making auxiliaries covering pre and post press chemicals, emulsions, accessories, squeegees and screen printing fabrics.
The SPI Exhibition was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India between Thursday 5th and Saturday 7th May. This biennial event focuses on screen, textile and digital printing materials and equipment and draws visitors from across Asia, although primarily focused on the domestic Indian market.
As with previous Exhibitions footfall was high across the three days. As well as domestic visitors the Exhibition also attracted many current Watts Squeegee distributors elsewhere in Asia and others who wanted to work with Watts, from over ten countries.
Will Barker commented “SPI was a very successful show for Photokina and we were delighted to be able to support them and their clients. We were pleased to work alongside Photokina’s other partners including Saati, Chromaline and Rhino Tech as well as meeting the Photokina Sales team who attended from all over India. “
“Watts is the market leader in India for squeegee blades. We promote three materials: our 7000, 2000 and 8000 Series. Each of these are optimised and designed to provide the key technical edge in specific industries.”
“So while certain screen print industries such as ceramics have shown a significant decline in recent years due to the increased use of digital technologies, the textile industry is still very strong in this region with much interest shown in our Watts range. We look forward to working closely with Photokina and its clients for many years to come”.
