Shree Someshwar Printers sets new benchmarks with Heidelberg

An ISO 9001:2008 certified company in Nasik (Maharashtra), Shree Someshwar Printers marks quantum leap with the recent installation of Heidelberg’s Speedmaster SM 74 press. Currently catering to education, pharma, agriculture and automobile industries, the company, with a clear focus on the future growth, also looks forward to having one more setup, and of course only from Heidelberg. Shree Someshwar Printers’ success story starts with Dyaneshwar Patil who is at the helm and is ably supported by three key members: Deepak Dattatraya – factory manager, Santosh Tidke – marketing manager and Ganesh Gadge – production in charge, and not to forget his army of fifteen dedicated and skilled workforce. The precursor to the real transformation of Shree Someshwar Printers came in 2003, when Dyaneshwar first came to know about Heidelberg. “We were really impressed by what we had known about Heidelberg, and our enquiries in the market received positive feedbacks, and finally we then decided to adopt Heidelberg technology,” says Dyaneshwar. This decision was firmed after witnessing live demos of Heidelberg presses at an Indian exhibition called PAMEX, in Nov 2011. “It was incredible and deep down I knew that my dream would get further impetus with Heidelberg. We there and then decided to go with Heidelberg’s Speedmaster SM 74 press. And in late 2012, the press was installed,” he shared.

Dyaneshwar Patil of Someshwar Printers with the brand new Heidelberg The Speedmaster SM 74 – a great press with great value for money is meant for medium-format applications. With a production speed up to 15000 sheets per hour, it can handle wide range of substrates from light weight paper (0.03 mm) to (0.60 mm) board. Also, the Prinect Press Center with Intellistart process-oriented operator guidance system provides user-friendly and ergonomic operations.

“The benefits that Heidelberg SM 74 offers are multifold and quite impressive. The jobs we used to do on two presses earlier are now handled by SM 74 alone and in addition, it also caters to extra jobs. This speaks volumes about the productivity of Heidelberg presses and helps printers like us to save on manpower, time and money. Even the power consumption has been low and the wastage is reduced. The quality it yields is the best we have churned so far and the reliability of the press is immense. Henceforth, we will be using only Heidelberg’s equipment, whatever may be the application. It’s a lifetime commitment with Heidelberg,” admits Dyaneshwar, adding that buying the Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 74 is his biggest achievement.

“After we installed the Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 74, we did some commercial printing jobs for a New Delhi based client that was earlier done in Delhi itself. Not only was the job well appreciated and complimented by our client, but they decided to do all their jobs at Someshwar in future. Today, we are the most sought after printer in the whole of Nasik, setting new benchmarks. Due to our lifelong printing partner - Heidelberg and our team at Someshwar,” says Dyaneshwar, emphasizing, “Without Heidelberg technology and support, the ISO certification wouldn’t have been possible for us. Team Heidelberg has been very supportive right from initial discussions, installation to post-installation. The training they impart to our operators was extremely useful.”

At the moment their post-press division hosts cutting machines, one punching machine, one UV coating machine and one Stahlfolder folding machine, while the pre-press is outsourced. Someshwar is known for their timely services, quality management and well-planned production.

“With a clear focus on the future growth, we are looking forward to having one more setup, and of course only from Heidelberg,” mentions Dyaneshwar forthrightly. Notably, Dyaneshwar graduated in Printing Technology from Pune’s ‘Vidyarthi Griha’s Maharashtra Institute of Printing Technology’ in 1998 and it was no looking back thereafter. Just two years after his graduation, he single-handedly started Shree Someshwar Printers in Nasik and also managed to create a client base. Even though obstacles were galore in the initial phases, it was Dyaneshwar’s determination that helped the business sail through the rough waters. In the beginning he ventured into commercial printing and bookmaking, with his next target being packaging.
