Guatemalan flexible food packaging supplier Polytec has enhanced its operations with the acquisition of flexographic press from Comexi.

The Comexi F2 ML machine was selected by Polytec to address converter challenges in the flexible packaging market.

It is designed to print at a speed of 500m/min.

As a global supplier, Comexi offers solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting sector.

Comexi F2 ML was installed at the Guatemalan plant several months ago and has already started operations.

Polytec Guatemalan plant manager Óscar Escobar has said that the company was able to verify the machine’s performance in terms of quality and consistency during printing over the months.
