Byron Zadik Lithography, located in Guatemala, belongs to the SigmaQ group since 1970 and is one of the largest offset printing companies in Central America. In looking to enhance its position in the market, the company recently invested in a new sheet-to-sheet laminator from Lamina System, with the aim of increasing efficiency in the sheet-to-sheet lamination process, as well as sheet-to-singleface.
Unfortunately, Lamina System’s 1116 Blackline automatic model arrived during the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan for the Swedish technicians to travel to Guatemala to install the equipment was not possible due to international travel restrictions. However, SigmaQ was supported by the technicians of Grupo Gevisa, the representative in Central America for Lamina System, who carried out the complete installation of the new machine.
“The machine was successfully installed in July and we are currently very happy, we have increased productivity substantially,” comments Marco Antonio Jurado, Production Manager at Byron Zadik Lithography .
