Kornit signs distribution tie-up with Batliboi, India
Jan '09
When Kornit tied-up with Batliboi for distributing its direct digital garment printing machines in India, it was an ideal match for both the companies. For Batliboi, it was a natural extension to enter into digital printing solutions and both companies are complementing each other very well. This will benefit the industry as prospective Kornit machine buyers can expect strong service support from Batliboi, which is essential for the success of such projects.

Batliboi Ltd is the official, distributor for Kornit direct digital textile printing machines in India. The company is the exclusive distributor for Western, Central & South India territory. It is currently the co distributor for Delhi and Ludhiana in North India.

Headquartered in Israel, Kornit Digital Ltd. is a dynamic, leading-edge company that develops, manufactures and markets state-of-the-art digital printers for the garment and apparel decorating industry. Founded by seasoned professionals with extensive experience in the digital printing industry and based on its proprietary ground-breaking technology, Kornit Digital introduces the Kornit line of high-speed digital inkjet printing machines, known to be the first Industrial Digital Printing machines which print Direct-On-Garment.

Founded in 1892, Batliboi Ltd. has grown to a position of leadership among engineering companies. The company has spearheaded technological change in all the activities comprising of textile air engineering, textile machinery, machine tools and air conditioning.

Batliboi's manufacturing facilities are located at Surat and Bangalore. Mr. Sandeep Mehta, Manager (Marketing), Batliboi Textile Machinery Group, Garment Machinery Division says, “We provide Pre & Post Sales services for products which cover a large portion of the textile manufacturing chain. The company provides solutions for Garmenting, Spinning, Knitting, Fabrics processing & finishing. Our profile is more apt for servicing high value capital goods.

In general, garment machines are not perceived as high value capital goods, particularly sewing. As far as solutions for Garmenting are concerned, we are into all areas except sewing.” Commenting on the division's various tie-ups, Mr. Mehta shares, “For Automated Cutting Room solutions we are representing the FKgroup from Italy. For value additions, we have a tie-up with TAS International, Australia, who are manufacturing carousel screen printing machines for T-Shirts.”

“For Garment value addition by wet processing we have a tie-up with Tolkar -Smartex from Turkey. We have done several projects for clients such as Arvind, Raymond, Suryakiran, Shahi Exports, Gokaldas Exports and many more.”

Explaining the background behind the recent tie-up with Kornit, Mr. Mehta points out, “Since our forte is for providing solutions for value addition to garments and also because of our tie-up with TAS, it was a natural extension for us to enter into digital printing solutions. Kornit also has developed a digital printing station, which can be interfaced to automatic screen printing carousel. This hybrid combination brings the best of both the technologies and provides unparallel scope to the designers not hitherto possible. Above all, it's the chemistry between Kornit and Batliboi. We complement each other well.”
