Giovanni Bettini, Sales Director of MHI Europe, has confirmed the company recently completed a sales agreement with Penha for the supply of a four colour EVOL 100 flexo folder gluer. This new EVOL 100 will be fitted with a Dual Slotter unit, which will allow Penha to double the productivity up to 42,000 boxes per hr for smaller boxes up to 475mm in length.
Penha, which is based in the town of Itapira in Brazil, is a long term customer of Mitsubishi. Having installed a complete high speed Mitsubishi corrugator only a few years ago, the company then installed their first EVOL 100 in 2019. “We are delighted to receive this order from Penha,” says Giovanni Bettini. “They have had such good success with their first EVOL, they placed the order for a second line only 12 months after the installation of the first machine! They have seen good results and put their faith in MHI once more for another high speed casemaker.”
Carlos Edson Shiguematsu, CEO of Penha, adds, “We have created a strong relationship with Mitsubishi over many years and we are happy to place yet another order with them. The build quality of their machinery is superb and we have based the continuing growth of our business on the reputation of Mitsubishi equipment. Adding another EVOL to our converting hall is a logical step and we look forward to a smooth installation later in 2021.”
