Silver Circle PLC, which specialises in large format digital printers, imaging and graphics as well as sign industry equipment in Sri Lanka and Maldives, have installed over 100 Infiniti, DGI, Mimaki and Seiko printers islandwide.
The company said the range of equipment include Digital Printers, Architectural Drawing Plotters, Sign Cutters / Plotters, Laser Engraver / Cutters, CNC Routers and Engravers, Laminating and Mounting machines, Portable Display stands, LED displays Boards etc.
Silver Circle Chairman Supem de Silva is a pioneer in the industry having set up the first Digital Imaging Studio and the first large format printer at the Kent Group of Companies in 1994, through German training and technology, thus starting off the digital imaging and printing industry in Sri Lanka.
De Silva said that there are more than 25 manufacturers of digital printers in China now, and not all of them have proper after sales technical support. “Therefore, it is imperative that you purchase the machine from a company that has a good reputation and after sales service.”
According to De Silva, the digital printing market in Sri Lanka is still very profitable compared to India where the printing prices are very low. “Most of our customers have been able to recover their machine value within the first year.”
