Comexi and Socipack Strengthen Relationship Thanks to the Acquisition of a Wide-Web Slitter-Rewinder

Comexi and Socipack have extended its strategic partnership with the acquisition by the African company of a Comexi S2 DS, which will be installed at the company's headquarters located in Abidjan. The two companies began working together back in 2016. Today, Socipack has two Comexi presses, three Comexi laminators, and two Comexi slitters. The new Comexi S2 DS will be the company’s third slitter and the eighth Comexi machine.

Socipack, Société Ivorienne de Packaging, is a company specializing in flexible packaging, labelling, sleeves, multilayer extrusion, and stretch film. It exports finished products to the African market and imports incoming raw materials for the manufacturing of plastic labels and packaging

Due to Comexi’s machine purchases, Socipack has reportedly become one of the fastest growing companies in the African flexible packaging and food packaging sectors.

Through Comexi’s technologies, Socipack has reportedly increased its productivity and capabilities, producing a wider range of products and applications, thus strengthening its position as a leading company in the African flexible packaging market.

Comexi is represented in the Ivory Coast by BLG International, which is based in Marseille as well as Abidjan.

“Socipack is the key player in the region, a young and dynamic company capable of providing films, packaging, and labels with the highest quality standards,” said Aleix Mas, sales manager, BLG.

The Comexi S2 DS slitter is a compact and fully electric machine with an ergonomic design. It permits adjustments and maneuvers the slitting after the material has proceeded. The NIP system, which separates tensions, reportedly enables the machine to use various tensions while rewinding and unwinding.

Quality and quantity are not incompatible with the Comexi S2 DS, due to the high productivity which is achieved by acceleration ratios. All of this is accomplished through reaching top speed at a quick rate. This slitter reportedly has tools such as the PC Touch-Panel, which is used to set the pace of the machine, and store production data.
