Italian firm Comiflex SRL has shaken hands with India’s largest global flexible packaging solution company Uflex confirming its intent to manufacture gearless CI Flexo printing machines under a Technology Transfer Agreement with the latter. This happened at drupa where Uflex is currently exhibiting.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has already been signed between Gianfranco Nespoli, owner of Comiflex SRL and Ajay Tandon, president and CEO, engineering business, Uflex. The company will market and sell these machines across the world.
With 50 years of experience to his credit, Gianfranco Nespoli is a well-known exponent in the field of designing and producing high quality CI Flexo machines. Nespoli is one of the founding members of Flexotecnica that was founded in 1979 in Galganano for manufacturing flexo printing presses for roll-to-roll printing on films and paper for packaging applications.
Expressing his pleasure, Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex, who is currently attending drupa, said, “We will be manufacturing gearless CI Flexo printing machines in collaboration with Comiflex SRL at our engineering plant in India. I am glad that Uflex has partnered with one of the sharpest brains of the CI Flexo printing machine technology. Innovation to create value added differentiation is the guiding principle at Uflex and our engagement with Gianfranco Nespoli’s Comiflex SRL testifies it. This tie-up furthers the ethos and spirit of my Government’s flagship scheme Make in India,” added Chaturvedi.
Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.
