Mumbai, India, June 16, 2021 – DKSH Business Unit Technology, a leading Market Expansion Services provider and distributor of packaging, printing and converting equipment, has once again partnered with SOMA, a leading manufacturer of printing and converting solutions for flexible packaging. As a result of this collaboration, DKSH has successfully installed SOMA’s new compact Optima flexographic printing press at Multiflex Polybags, a leading flexible packaging producer of labels, pouches and polybags, in its main plant at Chennai, India.
DKSH offers advanced industrial solutions in the printing, packaging and converting industries, serving various industries like food and beverage, health, beauty and personal care as well as pharmaceutical segments.
The compact 8-color SOMA 880 Optima CI Flexo press installed at Multiflex, is a highly automated press with all the bells and whistles for automated make-ready, registration and cleaning purposes without waste of material and time. The press runs at a speed of 300 meters a minute and can print materials with a width of 820mm.
Rajendra Mehta, Director, Multiflex Polybags, said: “This press is a must-have for every flexible packaging printer and converter, and its power packed in a compact space provides us with an extra armor in our arsenal. The machine is very versatile in terms of material handling and enables quick job changeovers for shorter runs. We are looking forward to producing high-quality printing jobs with SOMA Optima. We thank DKSH and SOMA for their continuous support in these challenging times.”
Pavla Kusa, Commercial Director, SOMA, commented: “While we certainly live in a globally connected world, SOMA understands that local resources are significant reference centers to explore and test new trends and innovations in flexographic printing. We are very happy, since this is the first time that the Optima press has been installed in India, following the previous installations of other models from SOMA’s Flexo Family”

At DKSH, we provide extensive technical, industry and service expertise to ensure our business partners’ success.”
