In May 2018, IMS TECHNOLOGIES S.p.A. (Bergamo, Italy), disclosed a strategic partnership between its brands GOEBEL IMS and Laem System at Print4All. Now, only shortly after, the two partnering machine manufacturers have announced the commissioning of two machines by FIBOPE PORTUGUESA. The renowned client produces flexible packaging films and is part of the Canadian Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (IPG). IPG is one of the global market leaders in the packaging industry and manufactures paper and film-based tapes, polyethylene and polyolefin films as well as various other flexible packaging films.

FIBOPE PORTUGUESA awarded Laem System a contract for two machines for converting shrink film. Both the highly productive centre-surface slitter rewinder and the fully automatic centre folder constitute strategic assets for FIBOPE’s future growth and profitability. Such a strategic investment requires an extensive know-how in the manufacturing of converting machinery for polyolefin shrink film – something that Laem System and its partner GOEBEL IMS both offer. The contracts for the two converting machines were signed last week – representing a positive signal that the new strategic alliance of the two manufacturing specialists has been well received by the market. “We appreciate the trust FIBOPE has put in us and look forward to further strengthen our partnership with the IPG Group. Together with our strategic associate GOEBEL IMS, we can continue to offer our customers the best solutions by bundling our companies’ strengths and portfolios,” states Davide Malki, sales manager of Laem System.
