Printing sector sees scope for outsourcing from West

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Feb. 24

AFTER information technology and health sectors, it is printing technology that's counting on huge potential for outsourcing from the West.

According to Mr P. Hanumanth Rao, President of Hitech Printers Association (AP) and Chairman of Pragathi Art Press, several Western countries were outsourcing printing works to Indian companies as it worked out to be cheaper here.

Mr Rao was addressing a gathering here today after inaugurating the Printers Day fete to celebrate the birthday of Johannes Gutenberg, regarded as the Father of Printing. Relating his own experience, he said his company was expected to get outsourcing jobs to the tune of $1 million (around Rs 4.5 crore) this year.

The advancements in technology had further enhanced the prospects.

"We can download the designs through mail attachments and send back the samples in four hours. After getting the approval, we can finish both the printing and delivery jobs in just four hours," a press release said here today.

Marking the event, a four-day expo on printing and allied technologies was opened.
