BOBST North America has revealed plans to open its new Competence Center in Atlanta, US, on 15-16 April 2024.
The centre is designed to serve as a hub for showcasing BOBST’s advanced solutions to converters and brand owners in the US market.
The new Atlanta facility will be approximately five times larger than the company’s previous demo centre in Alpharetta, Georgia, US.
It will feature a range of BOBST’s advanced technologies, including flexo, digital, and all-in-one printing, as well as laminating solutions for flexible packaging and labels.
The facility in particular will spotlight the VISION CI flexopress and the NOVA SX 550 solventless laminator, which together offer a fully optimised workflow for flexible packaging to serve as ‘one complete solution’, according to the company.
In addition, the centre will showcase the company’s digital printing capabilities with the DIGITAL MASTER 340 and the recently introduced DIGITAL EXPERT 340 label press.
