Bobst makes landmark sale to Avance Cartón

Bobst has confirmed that it has sold its 300th Mastercut, a major milestone for its iconic die-cutter. The 300th machine was sold to Avance Cartón based in Madrid. 

Originally launched in 2006, the Mastercut is associated with high productivity and best possible product quality, with high running speeds, shorter make-readies and excellent quality. Over the years, it has been regularly updated to match the rapidly evolving needs of customers.

“When you consider the pace of change with modern technology, the fact that Mastercut remains an industry-leading die-cutter after 12 years says everything,” said Anello Meloro, Product Sales Director at Bobst, who sold the machine to Avance Cartón. “Customers such as Avance Cartón who invested in these machines almost from the very beginning have seen huge benefits to their businesses over the last decade.”

Avance Cartón is part of Grupo Petit. They operate several facilities, producing paper, corrugated board and folding carton. Avance Cartón was established by Grupo Petit to serve customers around the Madrid area with corrugated packaging. The company is able to provide any type of corrugated box with the highest printing quality thanks to several Bobst Masterline (which includes a loader, Mastercut, Masterflex-HD print units, a blank separator with automatic bundle arrangement and a palletiser).

“At Grupo Petit, we think it is important to have the complete line from the same company, enabling as much automation as possible, keeping quality high and costs low,” explained Miguel Petit Vilaró, Director at Grupo Petit. “We have purchased many complete Masterline over the years. The key decision factors were always the same — productivity, size, reliability and automation of the full line. Quality of customer service is also very important. I must say that we have enjoyed a very long relationship with Bobst based on trust and dedication in both directions.”
