Value-added products for Makoter
"In regard to perforation, the quality and precise position, the possibility to define the strength of opening, and the ability to choose the model based on the needs of our customers, are the main arguments that have influenced us to purchase the Comexi S1 DS with laser technology,” explains Saša Makoter, owner of the Slovenian company. Additionally, he adds that this agreement with Comexi allowed them to be more competitive and opened up the possibility of creating products with higher added value, in turn increasing capacity. “Moreover, we will be able to introduce new products to the market without changing the equipment of our customers.”
Hygienic applicationsMakoter, which is headquartered in Ljutomer, uses the Comexi slitter to produce flexible packaging for hygienic applications such as toilet paper rolls, tissue towels, napkins, and handkerchiefs, among others.
