Indian printer adds third OMET label press
Unique was founded by R V Nerker in 1960 as a pre-press house with a tradition for high quality digital imaging. The reigns of the company were handed over to son of the founder, Ashok Nerker who ventured into digital flexo prepress and later moved forward into flexo printing and offset printing. It is now the 3rd generation at Unique running the company. Ashok Nerker mentored his son Gautam to take charge, who now heads the company. The company already had two OMET label presses and they have reaffirmed their faith in the brand by investing in yet another OMET label press.
