Mirmar stated that the capability of the P-Series allows expanding its business in the sectors of homecare and cosmetics, wine industry and others thereby producing profitable margins.

This helps in shifting the company’s substrate base from self-adhesive papers and thermals to PP and PE.

Mirmar CEO Jaime Mir Pastor said that the P-series presses have a facility of swapping jobs from one machine to another machine. This facility allows the company to deliver same day service with a significant faster ROI.

With the increased productivity rate, Mirmar is delivering its services to the domestic Spanish market, with exports to Portugal, Malta, and Morocco.

As it is planning to expand its customer portfolio, the label converter company is working to secure BRC accreditation which holds FSC and ISO 9001:2008.
