Mr.P.R.Srinivas, a one of his kind personality who lead Speed-O-Graphics India to it’s heights, is no more. His brand of “Printorama” sheet fed offset machines has a place of it’s own in our country. The gentleman peacefully passed away yesterday night. Cremation is being done today in Bengaluru. Mr.Srinivas was a Past President (First President from southern part of India) of IPAMA and was decorated with the Lifetime Achievement awards in the year 2019.
Sharing his grief Mr.Rakesh Sodhi, President IPAMA said that it is indeed very heart wrenching to know of the demise of our respected Mr.P.R.Srinivas who was not only a leading manufacturer of sheet fed offset printing machines but also a past Preseident of IPAMA. “I pray to almighty to provide eternal peace to the departed soul and to give enough strength to his family and friends to bear the immense loss” he addded.
Mr.Dayakar Reddy Sripathi, immediate past-President of IPAMA said “Srinivas sir was a legend for the printing industry in general and a mentor for me in addition to being the first president of IPAMA from South India. “Even today as I travel across the coutry I see many satisfied users of his machines and have only heard praise from his customers not only about his machines but also about his humble dealings with them” he added.
Mr.N.S.Mankoo, the then General Secretary of IPAMA while Mr.Srinivas was the President said “Extremely sad and pained to learn that Sh.PR Srinivas has left for his heavenly abode. Having known him for over three decades, a man of few words, always very courteous & warm, I had the privilege of working under his Presidency as a General Secretary from 1996-98. It was his perseverance and sociopolitical networking that the team then was able to successfully organise IPAMA’s – Printpack Expo’97 that too in an open palace grounds in Bangalore. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife, family and friends. Om Shanti Om.”
