22 APAC / Business Awards 2021 , “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower” - Steve Jobs Innovation for Coact Imprints is a multifaceted word. At Coact Imprints, the base of its foundation has been not only to meet client expectation but to exceed them by innovation, commitment, having an open mind, and trust. “We come from a new genre of digital era, wherein our foundation was laid by offset technology and cemented by our digital knowledge,” says Mr. Hitesh Valecha, Founder of Coact Imprints Private Limited. He fondly remembers “every company has a tale to tell, and our story started with leasing an office space and catering to small print runs. Soon, what started as a SME began to grow into a fully-fledged company catering to large print-runs, digital-runs, and variety of products. We have partnered with millions to print their big dreams. Our story is simple. We are passionate about education, about printing, as it is not only about the past and present, but also the key to the future. We are a young team of professionals who share the same passion and zest. We started this journey with a turnover of USD 600k and this year we are looking at a bullish USD 10 million. In 2020, the Global Commercial Most Innovative Printing Boutique - India Printing Market had a value of $411.99 billion. By the end of 2026, it is estimated to value $472.35 billion, with a CAGR of approximately 2.24% in 20212026. Five years from now, the printing market is predicted to witness remarkable growth.” “Post-pandemic, the thrust may change from revenues coming from players offering service led models and we too are gearing up for this,” Hitesh expresses. With so many print options in the marketplace, from commercial printers to local print shops, it’s important to find the right provider who understands the marketing mix and can provide the best solutions. This is where Coact Imprints, an Indian Print company, is boldly setting its footsteps in various geographies across the globe and offering a comprehensive basket of print services to book publishers and corporates. Situated in the world’s largest and fastest growing economies, India, Coact Imprints has the geographical advantage of being on west coast of Mumbai and closer to one of the biggest seaports in India known as JNPT Sea Port. When asked about the key differentiator in this incredible success- Mr. Vinod Thakur, who is the Co-Founder & Director, says “ is the ability to adapt and respond to opportunities, wherever we see them. We’ve grown and evolved dramatically over the years, serving global clients, expanding across Africa, and strengthening our service offerings. The focus region has been Africa. It grapples with huge disparities in the education. We saw a need to offer our services and help in improvising the product quality for textbooks.

Our people, track record for innovation, commitment to sustainability, and the passion we have for our work have made us the first-choice partner.” Ms. Jyotsna Chugh, Director of Marketing adds, “In today’s challenging and competitive market environment, it is vital to use all resources, capabilities effectively.
