Allied Pacific has invested in an eight-color Nilpeter FA-4* flexo press with de-/relamination, UV-lamination, cold foil, and Quick-Change Die Unit. The investment is a result of an increased demand for value-added flexible packaging. "We see a clear trend towards advanced flexible packaging solutions," says General Manager Ann Magdalene S. Chua. "We operate in a highly competitive market in the Asian region, so we need to differentiate ourselves from the competition." Chua adds, "There are so many benefits to the FA-4*, and I would be very surprised if this is the last Nilpeter press we invest in!"
