“With Carina’s many years of experience in flexible packaging, her enthusiasm for print finishing and her strong network in this region, I am certain that she will help us attain our ambitious goals in Asia,” said Andreas Friedrich, managing director KBA Asia-Pacific.
Tomypak Flexible Packaging Sdn Bhd opts for an EVO XD
Tomypak Flexible Packaging Sdn Bhd was founded in 1979 and is now one of Malaysia’s leading converters for flexible packaging. The company was first listed on the Malaysia Stock Exchange in 1996. Over 400 employees specialize in the production and converting of flexible packaging for a raft of prominent customers. The company solely operated gravure presses until now. Following an extensive selection process, largely managed by Carina Shia, the company opted for an EVO XD and has subsequently expanded its product portfolio in flexo print. The press is scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2018.
The rise of flexo printing
Flexo printing has a global growth rate of 4-5%, and it is even higher in some regions.
Improved print quality, based on mature pre-press and press technology, plays a key role.
“We have a cutting-edge and extensive portfolio especially for our customers active in the growing packaging market. Together with our partners in the industry and our product range, I am certain that I will be able to win over many customers with this technology,” Shia said.
