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.’

Both 10-color presses allow Tom to print at a maximum speed of 500m/min and has reduced changeover times.

Alexander Rabassa, Comexi area manager in this region, said: ‘Tom is one of our most important global clients, and I am very proud of the success of our long-term relationship. The new F2 ML and F2 MC presses provide the highest printing quality with the minimum waste and quick changeover, thereby increasing production efficiency and equipment amortisation.’

Tom specializes in manufacturing products for flexible packaging within the KDV Group. It is catering to pet food, gardening bags, wrap around bottles and cans segments amongst others.
