About us

Ratan, a brand associated with paper folding technology since its inception in 1985, was a vision jointly viewed by shri Amratbhai Panchal and his sons Mr Hitenbhai Panchal and Mr Manishbhai Panchal in an attempt to cater the ever growing Indian printing industry. Ratan was the result of technical expertise of Shri Amratbhai Panchal gained over the years, and his intention to manufacture machines that would match international standards, yet easy to operate at low cost.

This vision led Ratan to cross the 7000 successful installations across the globe and these numbers have aided Ratan to maintain an edge in the folding technology. Utmost precision and emotional touch is given to every machine that goes out of its workshop to maximise value to its customers.

Ratan’s Vision:

To become No.1 manufacturer of post press machinery in the Nation by delivering meaningful and high quality solutions to its clientele at local costs.

Simplicity is at the core of Ratan’s operation and this is witnessed in the nature of its all products.
