Institute’s Vision & Mission
Success Stories & Visitors Book
Well I came to know about SIGA from my uncle Mr. Sampath who was working there. As far as my experience studying at SIGA was really good. I learnt many new things every day and I feel that was the foundation of my life; when foundation is strong enough, building will last longer and I would say my foundation was laid as SIGA.
Being a Hindu by birth SIGA was the first Christian community that I saw in my life. I really admired the work of the Salesian brothers and fathers who were serving the poor, especially the youngsters. Like the saying instead of feeding a man with a fish for his hunger, teach him how to catch a fish, the exact thing happened in my life. I have always seen SIGA as a flawless institute and I do not have any thoughts on improving SIGA, it is already the best I would say.
I would like to give a suggestion to the youngsters at SIGA and that is not to work with a single company for years as it will not give you a professional growth, instead move on to more companies at your early career and explore the printing field and find out your real passion and then settle down.
I was good at drawing and designing and these skills were identified by the teachers and I got an opportunity to work with Br. Francis Xavier, SDB of Salesian Bulletin Magazine, both English and Tamil. Since I did well in layout, I was also taught camera and typesetting. The vast exposure to the latest technology and the open mindedness of the religious as well as the teaching staff at SIGA made me shine in Pre-press which was in demand then. I did my industrial exposure training at Ms. Prasad Process as a camera assistant for six months. In a career span of almost 26 years in the field of Printing, I joined Emirates Printing Press, Dubai, as a camera assistant through campus interview conducted at SIGA. Later I started learning and climbing the steps of state-of-the-art printing technology and was elevated as scanner assistant and I was fortunate to have worked in Sigma2000 by Dainippon, the computerised page mixing station then. Finally, I got promoted as Mac-operator and left EPP. I was a manual pre-press technician when I joined EPP and left EPP as a digitalised person. This evolution, in par with technology, got me a job I dreamt as a student at renowned ITC Chennai, where I learnt corporate management and manufacturing techniques under the able guidance of Mr. Shankar Kumar, my senior at SIGA. Later Mr. K.G. Prasad called me up and placed me in a senior level for their dream project of pre-press outsourcing which was later acquired by Ms. Sun Branding Solutions, a sister concern of Ms. Dainippon Inks-Japan (DIC) and Ms. Sun Chemicals-USA. At present I am working as the Operations Manager for Ms. Sun Branding Solutions at Chennai.
