When you review the top flexo printers all over the world, you hear names of companies who have multiple factories, machines number ranging in hundreds and a team in place to manage all this. This is a phenomenon we do not get to see in India.
India does possess able entrepreneurs who are willing to take their companies to global levels. Although the necessary ﬁnancial capital is available to achieve this, yet we need to strengthen and empower the human capital required to realize the perceived vision and global scale aspirations. Although some initiatives have been taken, we still have a long way to go.
FlexoGurukul is one such attempt to fill the gap that this industry suffers in the field of training. It is a seminar based technical training program which aims to impart technical knowledge in flexo printing with a very unbiased approach.
‘T Gautham Pai’ | Director, ‘Manipal Technologies Limited’
An excellent technical orientation initiative of Fasco. A great beginning of the seminar series, given the diverse mix of attendees representing prominent Printing Cos as well as aspirants. Participation of Supplier community supporting such a knowledge forum was encouraging. Basics were very well articulated and we wish the upcoming sessions will go more in depth.
