INDIAN PRINTING PACKAGING & ALLIED MACHINERY


MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION
BEFORE IPAMA CAME INTO BEING
In 1986 the Indian graphics art industry was in a nebulous
state, unorganized and non-existent.
There was no voice to attract worthwhile attention.
Onslaught of imported machinery was un-checked and un-
mitigated, seriously impacting growth of Indian
manufacturing industry.
So there was an instinctive urge for expression and
identification.

On 26th August1986 pioneers of the industry gathered to form an
Association of manufacturers of Printing Machines, Pre / Post
Printing equipments, allied equipment, inks and consumable
materials
It was baptized Graphic Art Equipment Association.
On 22nd August1988, rechristened as Indian Printing, Packaging &
Allied Machinery Manufacturers Association known as IPAMMA.
