And signs contracts for three more BOBST machines. Krystyna Marty Lang, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Switzerland to the Russian Federation, attends the event.
“BOBST FLEXO 160-VISION printing machine is part of a full EXPERTLINE 1.6 converting line. It works with EXPERTCUT 1.6 flatbed die-cutter,” says Marat Sayfullin, Market Development Manager at BOBST CIS. “The machine is very reliable, easy to operate and maintain. Last year alone, four FLEXO VISIONs were installed in the CIS countries.
“Currently, there are three print units on FLEXO 160-VISION in Pavlovsky Posad, but if necessary, they can be increased to five. All preparatory works have been completed.
“We have been cooperating with Pavlovsky Posad Corrugated Cardboard Plant for many years, they are brilliant specialists constantly striving for improvement. Today, I am coming back to Moscow with another three contracts signed with the plant for the supply of new BOBST equipment.
“These are FFG 618 miniline (three print units) with BOBST MULTIPAL palletizer, EXPERTFOLD 106 A2 folder-gluer, and another EXPERTLINE 1.6 flatbed die-cutting line, consisting of LOADER-AF autofeeder, FLEXO 160-VISION printing machine (one print unit), EXPERTCUT 1.6 flatbed die-cutter and BREAKER V1.”
“Currently, Pavlovsky Posad Corrugated Cardboard Plant monthly manufactures an average of 27 million square meters worth of corrugated products,” says Yuri Romanov, the plant’s Commercial Director. “Of this volume, 6 million square meters for sheet board, 2.5-3 million square meters for SRP, and the rest for RSCs.
“In the region, we serve the food and beverage industry, home care products and fast-growing eCommerce. We can tell this by the number of orders we’ve been getting lately.
“The plant’s production output has been growing all along. In 2021, it was +15% compared to 2020. There was no recession in 2020 either.
“The management plans to further expand the production capacity of the plant. There’s enough production space for this. Today, you can see large banners hanging over some of the empty areas inside the production facilities. They say what kind of equipment we plan to install in these places.”
“We could not miss it, because this is the world’s hundredth FLEXO VISION machine manufactured by a Swiss company,” says Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Switzerland to Russia Krystyna Marty Lang. “It is important for our embassy to support Swiss enterprises, and this visit is one of this kind. By communicating with the business, we get feedback and figure out what else we can do. I wish that the new machine brings every success to Pavlovsky Posad Corrugated Cardboard Plant.”
