In 2012, Al Mawrid ordered its first Heidelberg inline flexo press. The combination of a Heidelberg ICS with an inline die-cutter Heidelberg FCL in a printing width of 670 mm was mainly meant for the production of cigarette packaging.
Through the successful production with its first installation, Al Mawrid has come back and ordered another Heidelberg ICS.. In the Middle East and Africa, all signs point to growth. Due to the growing market demand for highly finished packaging and the success of the first installed machine, Al Mawrid decided to invest in a second Heidelberg ICS multi-process webfed solution. The press, consisting of flexo and gravure printing as well as different converting modules, will be installed soon, driving Al Mawrid’s growth further forward.
“The excellent flexo printing and value-adding quality of products that were printed on our first ICS excite our customers. What we internally especially appreciate about the flexo printing press is the easy operation, the low maintenance, the combination of various printing and converting methods within one machine and the enormous output combined with reliability and high uptime,” said Justin Ninan, production manager at Al Mawrid.
