Interview with Sandeep and Hemant Bharadwaj:
You have been loyal to brand Grafica for many years – some strong reasons:
Our association with Grafica began a few years’ ago with the purchase of their Nano-Print plus, a semi automatic screen printing machine. Since then we have established a friendly bonding with them and whenever we plan new investment, we have only Grafica in mind. We trust brand Grafica … because:
1) Friendship apart, the Quality of their every machine is excellent, in terms of craftsmanship and performance. It is sturdy hence requires low maintenance. We would say, in comparison to other four major brands in the world, Grafica’s machine is also equally good.
2) Their technical support is the best, which is backed by prompt after sales service.
Also, we are thankful to Bhargav Mistry, Director of DMI, who has boosted screen printing industry in India by sharing his valuable knowledge from time to time, something rare in India. He is available online or telephonically to solve our technical problems that is something very commendable. Everybody cannot go to DMI’s workshop to upgrade knowledge, but he is still giving us a chance to learn new techniques online, either through his blogs or helpline no.
