SPAIN • The solutions provider for the flexible packaging industry is expanding its presence in Africa with the installation of a new F2 MB flexo press at Natpak’s facilities in Zimbabwe.
Specifically, the African continent is one of the fastest-growing markets for flexible packaging industry and demand is increasing continuously. “We are achieving great results with sales in countries like Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, Ghana and Mauritius”, highlights Miquel Gironès, Comexi’s area manager of Africa.
Specifically one of the latest projects closed has been the purchase of a Comexi F2 MB flexo press by Natpak enterprise, an innovative top company located in Harare, (Zimbabwe) which produces variety of products for different flexible packaging sectors, mostly food packaging. Founded in September 1981, Natpak expanded to Harare in 1994 and has grown from being a woven polypropylene manufacturer to encompass other packaging materials such as LDPE. The relation between the two enterprises dates back to 2014 when the African company acquired a Comexi FW flexo press, which was followed now by the purchase of a F2 MB.
Since its foundation in 1954, Comexi has had a large presence in the northern part of the African continent with 90% market share in the flexo sector in countries like Algeria. These past years, the group has registered positive results with important sales of different flexo presses such as F2 MB and F2 MC, gravure presses, laminators like Comexi SL2 and S2 DS and S2 DT slitters.
