Unilux, a designer and manufacturer of stroboscopic inspection systems headquartered in Saddle Brook, NJ, USA, has opened a sales and service office in New Delhi, India. Ashwani Kumar has joined Unilux as sales manager in India to open the new office. He will provide sales, marketing and basic technical sales support to solidify Unilux’s presence in the country’s printing and converting industries.

“We’re still quite new in the printing and converting industries in India, but Unilux inspection system sales in the country have doubled every year for the past three years,” says Mike Simonis, president of Unilux. “Large flexible packaging printers for consumer products have been buying Unilux systems directly from us, and narrow web printers are specifying them from press and rewinder manufacturers.

“Ashwani Kumar has the ideal skills and qualifications to introduce Unilux systems to India’s industrial base and help our customers make the most effective use of our technology,” he says. “He has worked with our customers in their factories and has helped provide solutions to many types of production problems.”

Kumar joins Unilux after spending the last two years in sales support for Jasch Industries Limited, New Delhi, Unilux’s agent for India in the steel industry. Before that, he spent eight years with an Indian company that manufactured machinery for the metals, paper and plastics industry. He holds a BA degree in economics from Himachai Pradesh University and an MBA degree in international business from Symbiosis University.
Kirk Nell, Unilux manager for Asia, says the new office in India will allow Unilux to expand the market for its products and offer better sales and technical support for current users.

“Ashwani will provide a direct link to Unilux for our agents and customers to help them both get faster answers to questions and faster action on suggestions,” Nell says. “Our customers’ success is a direct result of our being able to demonstrate our technology to customers who are looking for every competitive edge to maintain their product quality. We will further support our growth by adding repair service capability to our new office in India.”
