According to the Managing Director of Glow Colours – Mr. Kayode Kehinde, the initiative to diversify and grow his business stem from the need to contribute to educational development of the nation through the provision of high quality exercise books; ‘we saw the need to start the production of high quality exercise books because we observed that the Nigerian market is characterised with sub-standard exercise books. So we saw the need to improve what we have. Although there are some big organisations that produce quality exercise books like MapleLeaf, Vista, Onward and so on but they are unable to meet the needs for smaller jobs. For instance, some private schools are paying huge amount of money for exercise books but still when you look at the exercise books produced, their rulings are not straight and the colours fade which affects the psychology of the children. That inspired our investment into the Bielomatik fully automatic exercise book machine to contribute our quota to the educational development of the Nigerian child’.
He also revealed that Glow Colours will serve the needs of the various markets be it private/ corporate or governmental bodies across the country with special specifications and sizes from 40leaves, 60leaves, to 80leaves and Higher Education Note Books, ‘as you know us for quality designs, we are willing to help our customers design their notebook cover to suit their brand, logo or culture’.
WHERE To Print gathers that with the capacity of the Bielomatik printing machine, Glow Colours is fortified to handle the most extreme and urgent exercise book production jobs due to its speed, accuracy, clean and clear ruling techniques which afford Glow Colours to produce up to 15,000 books per hour. ‘We will also be producing for commercial and private users who also want to customise their exercise books for promotions during product launch or awareness programmes or as gifts on festive occasions. We also have our branded product line - Glow Line - which is of international standard. In essence, what I’m saying is that our production can compete with any top-range quality standard whether internationally or locally’ assured Kehinde.
