HISTORY

The history of Duggal is one of innovation. Company founder, Baldev Duggal used his ingenuity and keen understanding of photography to design and build the first Dip and Dunk processing machine, which revolutionized film developing and the core technology is still used around the world today.

In the late’80s, Duggal invested aggressively in technology, to again vault the company forward. Duggal was the first company to introduce sophisticated RGB drum scanning and electronic retouching for photographers. Many graphics companies are still struggling to adapt to technology that Duggal embraced over two decades ago.
