He has a degree in Business Administration in Spain and International Business in Germany, has wide commercial experience in the Russian flexible packaging industry and other international companies. He also has been leading international business developments at Russian companies, being responsible for major international tenders and equipment purchasing, international exhibitions and extension to CIS.
Comexi has for many years counted on the support of its collaborators in the area with the companies Converplas, Tusson and the recent new agency in Lithuania and Latvia driven by Ronaldas Vaitekunas. The company will continue implementing its strategy across Russia and CIS countries, and from now on Eurosale Group will also become part of the team in Russia providing logistical support and spare parts assistance.
Training and seminars
Moreover, another main goal in this expansion is to give an impulse to trainings, in-house formations and technical seminars that the group, through its Manel Xifra Boada Technological Centre, Comexi CTec, offers in this area. In the near future, the company will have a technological centre with high technological machines and where demos and training in flexible packaging processes such as printing, lamination or slitting will be offered. In the annual program Comexi Ctec includes two sessions in Russian, in which it has already done: advanced flexographic printing sessions, advanced lamination sessions, colour technical seminar, print defect solution course, and maintenance workshop, with the participation of 115 attendees from the area of Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus. In addition, the rigorous and growing demand of the sector has led to the realization of training adapted to the needs of the client, given in the company’s facilities or in the same Comexi Ctec.
