Comco presses penetrate Eastern Europe and Asia

May 17, 2006

Sales of market leading Comco ProGlide presses are reported to have taken off in 2006, with orders coming from Eastern Europe and Asia, according to Mark Andy, the parent company.

Comco has received orders for a six-color 18” and a seven-color 22” ProGlide line from Kyrgyzstan and Russia, respectively. The 18” Comco ProGlide, fitted with full UV flexo capability and hot air drying capability, has been ordered by Triada Printing House for its newly created Triada Flex company, and will be installed in a brand new plant employing over 100 people. It will be the first flexo printing machine serving the Kyrgyz market, and will complement Triada’s existing line up of Heidelberg sheet fed offset presses that work around the clock producing print for the local area.

From its headquarters in Rostov-na-Don, Russia, Plast has ordered a 22” seven-colour Comco ProGlide to offer printed packaging previously sourced from Moscow. Set up in 2004 by Evgeny Kogan specifically to serve the local market with packaging products, Plast will use the Comco, which has been specified with a high-speed hot air Momentum drier, to produce food packaging, including shrink sleeves and bottle wraps.
