After the recent entry in the Indian market, Lombardi Converting Machinery, a Brescia-based company specializing in narrow web flexo presses for labels and flexible packaging, signed a distribution agreement with Zonten in Shanghai for distribution of their ma-chines in the Chinese market. The agreement with the Chinese distributor was formalized during Label expo Asia Shanghai in early December 2015 and has now paid off with the sale of the first flexo press to a major label manufacturer of the industrial city of Hangzhou.
The tie-up between Lombardi and Zonten occurred during Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, where Xiaoyu Lin visiting Lombardi’s stand, was impressed by the advanced technology and in particular the accuracy of the register of the new Synchroline, the latest generation of the narrow web flexo presses produced at Lombardi. “Discovering Lombardi was for us the most important success of 2015. When at Labelexpo Europe we saw the two Synchroline presses at work. We were sure we have found the solution to what we were looking for to meet the needs of the industry in China and the Far East,” says Lin.
“After the successes of recent years in Europe and North Africa our presence in India dates back to 2014. We are striving to be present in the important Chinese market, which encourages us to continue in our technical and commercial strategies that have been put in place step-by-step for years with dedication and seriousness,” according to Claudio Lombardi, founder and president of Lombardi Converting Machinery.
