Mr. Shashikant Gala was an enthusiast and a passionate business person. A man who brought the Pad Printing technology in India and spread it across to neighboring countries.
In 1983, He started a company named "Vaijoosha" where they had imported pad printing machines from Switzerland. He was very fascinated by the technology and its ability to Printing in on various shapes and sizes. He started spreading a word that printing was possible on various kinds of shapes and sizes and started taking printing jobs. It was difficult to survive because Cliche's and Pads had to be imported and never could fit into the profit margins. The turn around time was also difficult and unacceptable by customers.
Nevertheless, He took this as a Challenge and started investing his own time into researching and experimenting with the manufacturing of Cliche's and Pads.
In 1988, He started his own manufacturing unit for Pad Printing Machines in the name of his daughter Kinnari as Kinnari's Pad Flex. Kinnari's Pad Flex manufactured Pad Printing machines, they had in-house Cliche and Pad manufacturing. Kinnari's Pad Flex became a sole distributor for Marabu Inks, Germany for India.
With the fast expansion, growth, and demand for latest machinery and automation, he invested in latest technology and space for delivering better quality machines. In, 1998 the company changed its name to Kinnari Printing Technologies Private Limited and achieved a great success.
He passed away on 15th May 2015 at the age of 55 leaving behind his legacy and a motto "Print Anything, Anywhere".

I saw each part being made of the machines and assembled to create the beautiful technology of Pad Printing. I observed making the Cliche's and Pads and understood how the process of Pad Printing worked. Yet there is so much to learn. For me, every new product is a challenge and making it a success is an achievement for both us and our customers."
