Soma Engineering has appointed Insight Communications as its agent for the sales and support of its products in the Indian market. Based in Mumbai Insight Communications specialises in the supply of pre-press and wide web printing and converting equipment for the graphic arts industry. Established in 1991, the company represents a number of international suppliers providing the Indian market with a comprehensive range of products that include both offset and digital printing systems.

Commenting on the appointment, Bhupendra Srivastava of Insight Communications said, “Having seen the Soma equipment in operation, and in particular, the Soma Imperia flexo press running at 400m/min I was keen to work with the company. Coincidently, they were looking for a new agent at around the same time as we were seeking to expand our share of the flexible packaging market with high end products. This is what brought us together. Over the years, we have played a key part in establishing multi-national brands throughout India and one of the prime reasons for our growth is the emphasis we place on customer support with a team of more than 60 engineers to install and maintain our large portfolio of machines.”

Soma Engineering has been supplying flexographic printing and converting systems since the 1990’s and are certified to CE standards. In addition to manufacturing CI flexographic printing presses SOMA also supplies slitter rewinders, laminators, mounter proofers, sheeters, die-cutters and customer specified machinery. The company serves an international market from its facility in Lanskroun, Czech Republic that is supported through a network of distributors and agents around the world.
