Comexi has inaugurated its Technology Center in Girona (CTec Girona). The new Manel Xifra Boada Technology Center, CTec Girona, is integrated into the company’s production center. It has a multipurpose space of 2,500 square meters for not only innovation and development of R&D projects, but also for training, consulting, demonstrations, and an industrial laboratory. CTec Girona will have 9 state-of-the-art machines for the flexible packaging sector. In collaboration with leading sector companies, such as ESKO, DuPont and Asahi, for offset plate engraving, the facility will have a pioneering prepress area. Globally, the new center will be a benchmark, not only due to its vastness and versatility, but as a result of reflecting corporate sustainability and the industry 4.0 project, which is a primary objective of Comexi. This inauguration concludes the first phase of development. Within the next two years, CTec Girona will be complemented with new extensions, thus making it a global packaging sector reference point, at a functional level and for research and development.

The new Comexi Technology Center features the most advanced tools regarding the digitization of processes and job workflows for printing and converting. One of these tools is Comexi Cloud, a digital service platform which assists customers with the improvement of their factory performance through the analysis of real-time production data. Consequently, this allows them to build and develop smarter factories.

The CTec Girona team not only manage the execution of various services offered, but develop these new spaces as well.

“Our CTec in Girona is the natural response to longtime latent needs of the market, as well as an example of the importance of innovation in our sector. As a result of the renovated technology centers, we offer our clients the best customized solutions for their businesses, thus responding to the trust they have in us”, stresses Manel Xifra, the president of Comexi.
