Romania-based printer and label converter Sunimprof Rottaprint has purchased two 8-color Mark Andy P5 flexo presses to boost production capacity.
Sunimprof’s production floor at its headquarters in Cluj-Napoca features seven narrow web flexo presses, and a mid web offset line.
The new presses will complement the Sunimprof’s existing Mark Andy Performance Series P5 which was purchased in 2012.
Mark Andy Romanian distributor GOS Sebastian Boureanu said: “We have developed a very close relationship with Sunimprof Rottaprint over the years and supplied much of the technology in their production plant.
“When they first started, flexo was virtually unknown in Romania and there was little support for new ventures. Over the years our two companies have grown together through mutual respect and cooperation – and both are now successful.”
Mark Andy said that Sunimprof had selected the Performance Series presses for its ease and speed as well as to maintain tight register at high speed across a range of substrates.
Sunimprof general manager Cristi Nechita Rotta said that the firm expects export sales to increase from 25% to 30% by the end of the year.
The Romanian firm is engaged in providing a variety of printed labels and packaging items as well as automated labeling machines, thermal printers, ribbons, and label applicators to the Romanian packaging market.
The firm also offers products including PS and PP trays, stretch and sealing films, absorbent pads, and tray thermo sealing machines.
