The Russian company can access to new markets thanks to the acquisition of a Comexi F2 ML and a Comexi F2 MC
Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the printing industry and the conversion of flexible packaging, and Tom Ltd., a leading Russian company which is part of KDV Group, have strengthened their commercial relationship thanks to the new acquisition of two new Comexi flexographic presses. The decision by the Siberian company to purchase the new Comexi presses F2 ML 10 colours and a Comexi F2 MC 10 colours, has allowed Tom Ltd. to leap forward in the quality of their performance and access to new markets.
Through these acquisitions, the Russian company can print faster, at a maximum speed of 500 m/min, and spend less time with changeovers. In addition, the large format of the F2 ML (1160mm) in relation to the FW (800mm), represents an advantage for Tom Ltd., allowing them to satisfy larger repeat prints for their portfolio. Thanks to this, they are currently able to compete in markets such as pet food, gardening bags and even wrap around bottles and cans.
"In 2018 we implemented two new press machines: the Comexi F2 ML 10 colours and Comexi F2 MC 10 colours, bringing our existing production chain to a total of 6 Comexi machines. As a result of the print speed and quality offered by Comexi products, we have been competitive in the market for more than 10 years. Likewise, we are very satisfied with the quality technical service and timely support provided by the company's specialists at any stage of production. We look forward to continuing this valuable collaboration with Comexi”, explains Sergey Maltsev, Deputy General Manager of Tom Ltd.
