This family-company with almost 50 years of experience has recently installed a new Comexi
F2 MB flexographic press. Since 2011, the South-African enterprise has trusted in Comexi’s
technologies and nowadays is working with different solutions such as Comexi FPLUS
flexographic press and Comexi F2 MP press apart from other machinery. “It is one of the largest
packaging company in this country, leading in the continent and they are continuously growing,
achieving the maximum capacity of our printing technologies”, says Comexi area mgr.-Africa Miquel
Gironès. “We are so pleased to be able to assist them in their expanding plan."
This latest Comexi F2 MB press acquisition is an advanced machine dedicated to short and
medium runs that shares the patented FLEXOEfficiency concepts or ergonomics and
accessibility of the Comexi F2 family. “It is a top-performance, flexible machine that will
broaden Tropic Plastic & Packaging market, boosting its production and completing its range of
machines currently available," adds Gironès.
“Comexi is the leader in the industry at the moment when it comes to flexographic printing
presses. Their attention to detail is immaculate and all elements are tailor-made for our
purposes," says Ismail Simjee, Tropic Plastic & Packaging MD. In this sense,
Simjee underwrites that Comexi’s aftersales service has been the main reason to continue
purchasing new machinery from the Spanish group. “Comexi has helped us gain competitive
edge in the Southern African market since partnering up seven years ago and we look forward
to continuously growing as a strategic partner in the future."
One of the greatest examples of this successful partnership between both companies has been
showed recently when Tropic Plastic & Packaging achieved most prestigious awards using
Comexi’s solutions. In particular, the Southern-African enterprise was recognized with a Gold
Award from the Goldpack Awards for the best overall flexible plastic in South Africa, a Bronze
Award from Goldpack Awards for best transit packaging in the country and a Silver Award for
best print quality from Flexographic Print Excellence Awards (FTASA). Besides, in 2016, the
company also achieved another FTASA Gold Award for best wide web print quality using a
Comexi F2 MP.
“We are extremely ecstatic, it is a brilliant recognition and exposure for both brands and rewards
Tropic's constant investment in innovation giving us the edge over in the South African market.
Besides, it boosts the self-esteem of the entire workforce," says Simjee.
