A new facility for Kumar Labels in Noida, Uttar Pradesh
In April 2011, Kumar Labels relocated to a new facility in NOIDA (near New Delhi). The new facility is about 10 times the size of the previous unit. Keeping up with our usual “make it happen” spirit, our team moved the entire factory in less than 24 hours and re-started production in the new facility in less than 48 hours!!
Our new facility also became home to several new equipment. Our recent additions include a U.V. Silk Screen Press; an Auto-Inspection system; and a 8-color U.V. Letterpress. Our office now hosts a dedicated customer service team, an independent QA team and a brand new MIS which would further improve our customer service.
Installing "Poka-Yoke" at Kumar Labels
Our operators often forgot to push down the tension roller on the converting equipment. The result was inconsistent registration of our die-cutting. While we tried all methods of training of operators, it was un-avoidable situation where one in hundred instance was still possible.

A sensor was installed such that if the tension roller was not pushed down, the machine would simply not run! This reduced our in-house rejections significantly and we have never again heard the same complaint from customer...
Kumar Labels' 3 minute rule

This enabled us to correctly locate any printing plate or die used in the past 12 months within 3 minutes. Further this increased our OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) by 22%...
Spreading awareness about mouth-cancer - improving the lives of those associated with us..
Majority of our production team members consumed "Gutka" or chewable tobacco. Not only this created a house-keeping nightmare, it would have potentially caused various ailments like mouth cancer. When all attempts of tightness of regulations didn't work, the management invited members of "Indian Cancer Society' to deliver a message on the dangers of mouth cancer due to tobacco and smoking. The speech had a magical effect. Many of our team members quit eating "Gutka" and now live a healthy life.
