Canon India celebrated the spirit of womanhood

The 20th anniversary celebrations of Canon India took a leap forward with ‘We@Canon’, initiatives to recognise women power within the organisation on International Women’s Day (March 8). We@Canon stands for Women Empowerment at Canon where the senior women leaders are advisors to the CEO to support initiatives that can bring positive change in the organisation’s gender ratio. Canon India has an array of policies and initiatives that bring women to the forefront of decision making.

Speaking about the significance of its women workforce, on this International Women’s Day, Kazutada Kobayashi, president & CEO, Canon India, said, “The milestone achievement of our 20 glorious years in the country, would not have been possible without the equal contribution of our women workforce. Considering our employees the biggest assets, we endeavour towards ensuring equal opportunity for all our people.”

“Women today are emerging as leaders in every industry including technology. It is for us to acknowledge and honour their determination. Today, our workforce has 12.3% contribution from women employees. Vision 2020 is to nurture the talent within the organisation and level up the number of our women employees,” added Kobayashi.

Xeikon establishes direct presence in India

Xeikon is continuing its strategic review of how it works with customers on a regional level by establishing a direct presence in India. Beginning March 2017, Xeikon is building on the strong market presence through its parent company Flint Group to support and servicing the label, folding cartons and commercial printing segments of the Indian market. This move follows Xeikon’s decision to create a direct to market approach in Australia and New Zealand.

According to Bent Serritslev, managing director, Xeikon Asia Pacific, “Previously, we selectively addressed the market through sales partners but customers in India are increasingly looking for unique and special applications to differentiate their business - building on experience of the manufacturer rather than sales partners. At the same time, the Indian market is investing in high quality and high performance digital printing systems driven by growth in shorter run production, brand security and variable content demanding direct relationship with the manufacturer.” The change in India involves strengthening of both the sales and customer service team to professionally address customer requirements.

In the commercial printing space, Xeikon addresses the B2 plus format with the ability to print unlimited length of image and with several product suites for the wall decoration, books and magazines markets as well as for the textile and pharmaceutical inserts.

Also proving a big attraction for customers in the region is Xeikon’s unique portfolio for labels that includes FDA compliant toner for direct dry food contact without barrier coating, very high light fastness, special brand security features, full rotary printing and all charges based on actual consumption rather than click charges.

Serritslev added, “Xeikon would like to thank Flexo Image Graphics Pvt Ltd and AVS Graphic Solutions (OPC) Pvt. Ltd for their supportive service to date and for ensuring a smooth transition for our customers.”
