Swedish flexible and cardboard packaging converter AR Packaging Halmstad has added a new Comexi S1 DS slitting machine to increase its productivity. The machine will be installed in the company’s Halmstad plant (Sweden). The relationship between the two companies dates back approximately 30 years when AR Packaging Halmstad purchased the first Comexi machine.
Presently, there are three types of Comexi machinery, flexo press machines with a central drum, slitters, and laminators at the company’s plant. All converting machines in the Halmstad plant are from Comexi.
Ramon Jonama, Comexi area manager of this region, commented: ‘We are very pleased to expand our relationship to with AR Packaging Halmstad, a company which has relied on Comexi's technology for many years. This new agreement between the two companies demonstrate that Comexi has the technical solutions which our clients need to advance regarding their day-to-day life and market consolidation.’
AR Packaging Halmstad was founded in 1929 by Erik Akerlund and Ruben Rausing to reshape European pre-packed goods retailing. Today, among others, the company's flexible packaging division is a leading provider of packaging for food and consumer goods, beauty and cosmetics, confectionery, food services, tobacco, as well as pharmaceutical and medical industries.
The plant in Halmstad is specialized in the production of flexible food packaging with a barrier protection.
‘The Comexi slitter will allow AR Packaging Halmstad to increase its productivity with the highest standard of quality,’ explained Jonama.
