How did we start out?

In 1947, first generation entrepreneurs M.E.Subramanian and M.E.Swaminathan decided to follow their passion of putting ink on paper and opened a letterpress printing company under the name Amra Press in the heart of erstwhile Madras. The nature of printing jobs undertaken in those days were predominantly book printing for publishers such as Orient Longman and Oxford University Press in addition to the Tamilnadu Textbook Society.

In 1972, Subramanian’s son, Nagarajan, joined the business after completing his Diploma in Printing Technology. He dared to dream beyond just letterpress technology and in 1978, Nagaraj and Company imported their first sheetfed offset machine – a Planeta PE4. Soon he was joined by his brothers Raju, a Chartered Accountant, and Ramakrishnan, a Printing Technologist. Through the 80’s and 90’s, NCPL grew from strength to strength and came to be known as the most reliable and quality conscious printer in Chennai.

Now with the Nagarajan’s son, Prashanth, having joined the business after completing his Masters in Print Media from Rochester Institute of Technology, New York, NCPL maintains is steadfast in its focus to consolidate its position as the leading commercial offset printing company in Chennai.
