Who We are

About the Bell Group

Our History

Bell Printers was founded in 1981


The Bell Group was founded in 1952 by Mr.Chelladhurai. Here he is accorded a welcome after signing agreement with German Companies


The founder’s son, Mr.Gunasingh developed Pin Machines for the Bell Pins Manufacturing company which created about 500 jobs in Palayamkottai.


With our first exports to the USA in early 1970s, we broke China’s monopoly in selected sectors.


Bell Printers was founded in 1981 under the name of Chellsons Fine Arts, primarily as printshop catering only to the printing and packaging needs of the Bell Group and Standard Fireworks


Even with just very basic print equipment, Bell won the National Award for Printing Excellence for its amazing large format posters


Completion of the Bell Hotel in Sivakasi with 40 rooms was the start of the diversification of the Group into the Hotel Industry


Realising that our big dreams and ambitions needed space to grow, a large tract of land in central Sivakasi was chosen as the site for our new factory.


As construction started speeding up, our factory transformed the skyline into a workplace of change, that will generate hundreds of jobs in the neighbourhood.


We moved to our current location in a 5 acre state-of-the-art facility, transforming ourselves into a corporate setup with a team of highly skilled staff and employees. We had invested in a series of German Heidelberg press and Japanese postpress equipment.


Bell Printers celebrates its 30th Anniversary of Operations with grand celebrations.


Building a factory with new machinery and a great team was not all. We introduced 5S systems in the workplace and maintain a spotlessly clean workplace.


Corporate Governance was introduced in 2012 with a team of highly skilled and experienced professionals in the industry. This was unheard of in Sivakasi.


Professional Training becomes a routine process in Bell, as our team members work consistently with their own personal values to grow.


Under Innovation Category, we win a National Award for Printing Excellence in Pune. We now take efforts for making innovation a routine at Bell


Bell Printers is is connected with the BMPA (Bombay Master Printers Assn). Our Director Mr. Vashikaran joins print delegations to Japan & Germany.
