Brazilian flexible packaging converter SR Embalagens has installed the new Comexi F3 flexo press

Brazilian flexible packaging converter SR Embalagens has installed the new Comexi F3 flexo press at the Barretos plant near São Paulo to boost its overall productivity.

Founded in 1979, SR Embalagens manufactures flexible plastic packaging, serving diverse commercial and industrial segments and is now one of the largest companies in the country.

Among the reasons for the purchase of the 8-color press the converter list reduction in delivery time, competitive time-to-market, robustness, and reliability, printing quality, as well as low production costs. The new Comexi F3 also features electronic systems for high quality printing on different substrates, from plastic films to paper or laminated structures.

‘There has been a resumption of the Brazilian economy, making it very important for us to be prepared and offer our customers the best solutions. For this reason, we rely on Comexi,’ said Sergio Cameiro, CEO of SR Embalagens.

‘This installation reinforces the strategic and the strong partnership that SR Embalagens and Comexi have maintained for many years,’ said André Perez, sales manager for Comexi in Brazil. ‘The new Comexi F3 flexographic press has been incorporated into the Barretos production plant, consequently enhancing and broadening SR Embalagens. This is the third Comexi flexo press acquired by the Brazilian company.’

Comexi managing director Marc Boadas added: ‘In 2019, the group surpassed its press sales number in Brazil. It has been an excellent year with a significant increase in business and market share. Our general sales grew by approximately 35 percent.’

Figures for 2020 indicate that Comexi Brazil expects to exceed its 2019 grow, aiming for an additional increase of 60 percent. Moreover, within the next two years, the company intends to launch three new printing presses, as well as create a service and spare parts hub, in order to support its South American clients.
