Comexi (Girona, Spain), specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging industry,and Wipak Group (Bomlitz, Germany), manufacturers of highly innovative premium-quality packaging solutions, reinforce their strategic alliance. Wipak Group has just acquired four Comexi S1 DT slitters, which join a selection of Comexi slitters and laminators that the firm has already installed at its several production plants all around the world.

The alliance between Wipak and Comexi dates back to 2005 when the global group purchased its first Comexi slitter. Now, with these new acquisitions, the company reinforces its confidence in Comexi. Three of the new S1 DT will be integrated with other Comexi’s slitters that the group has already working in its Walsrode plant in Germany, in order to complete the automation project in its slitting section. The fourth S1 DT will be installed in the Polish Wipak plant.

“They are completely automatic slitters, with high added value, dedicated to the conversion of flexible laminates and semi rigid materials such as the ones used for the food packaging,” explains Comexi’s key account manager Agustí Combis. Furthermore, Combis also highlighted that another Comexi slitter and rewinder, purchased earlier by the group, has been recently delivered to Wipak Nastola.
