Allied Pacific Invests in the Nilpeter FA-4*
Allied Pacific has invested in an 8-colour FA-4* flexo press with de-/relamination, UV-lamination, cold foil, and Quick-Change Die Unit. The investment is a result of an increased demand for value-added flexible packaging.
The Philippine packaging solutions company is a large player on the local package printing market and is one of 50 subsidiaries in the giant RD Corporation. Since 2005, the company specialises in printing of labels, pouches, boxes, wrappers, and much more, within the food segment.
“We see a clear trend towards advanced flexible packaging solutions”, General Manager of Allied Pacific, Ann Magdalene S. Chua, explains. “We operate in a highly competitive market in the Asian region, so we need to differentiate ourselves from the competition”.
In 2015, Ann Chua set out to find her next flexo press to keep up with the increasing demand. She spotted Nilpeter’s FA-4* running candy sachets at LabelExpo Europe’s Packprint Workshop in 2015, and her interest was sparked.
“I was immediately impressed with the level of automation on that press”, says Ann Chua. “It basically combines a very cool design with a lot of practical and ergonomic features – and this appeals to me”.
Another contributing factor for Allied Pacific’s decision is the confidence in Nilpeter’s service setup in the Asian region. “Service is of the utmost importance to us, and we have no doubt that Nilpeter Customer Care will support us every step of the way”, says Allied Pacific’s General Manager.
Allied Pacific Packaging Solutions Corp. expects to move into more segments, such as health & beauty, beverage, and pharmaceuticals. “There are so many benefits to the FA-4*, and I would be very surprised if this is the last Nilpeter press we invest in!”, Ann Chua concludes.
