Comexi (Girona, Spain), a global leader in the flexible packaging industry, further underlined the importance of the Brazilian market for the company. The machinery suppliers held a seminar in the city of São Paulo, which was a resounding success, with the participation of almost one hundred professionals from 32 renowned companies in the sector. The event was led by Comexi and the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Center (CTec).

Firmly committed to the knowledge and evolution in the industry of the flexible packaging conversion sector, Comexi selected Brazil as the venue for the fifth 2018 technical seminar, confirming the confidence of the company’s owners in the economic recovery of this country. The first four seminars were held in Peru, Mexico, South Korea and Japan respectively. The conference took place at the Holiday Inn Parque Anhembi Hotel in São Paulo, and Comexi sent its best technicians and specialists to give high-quality lectures that allowed attendees to learn about the new global solutions for a flexible packaging market, which every time is more demanding.

Jeroen Van der Meer, CEO of Comexi, was in charge of welcoming all the participants to the seminar. After this introduction, Marc Boadas, general director of Comexi in Brazil, took the floor to stress the growth opportunities that flexible packaging has in the Brazilian market, which is beginning to take its first steps. He also commented on its global trends, as well as the opportunities of the different agents of the sector. "The flexible packaging market is economically healthy for industrial monitoring because it has a historical and future annual growth of more than 5% per year," said Boadas, who also highlighted that "the South American market has an annual consumption of flexible packaging per capita less than US $8, while Europe has US $24 and the United States US $63."

"In this seminar we had the opportunity to share the technical knowledge in the extended gamut, and how our portfolio of machines can enhance this process. And all this, with the participation of the most important Brazilian companies in the flexible packaging sector," concluded Boadas at the end of the event.
