After looking at several alternatives, we felt that Expertfold 165 offered the best overall package to help us fulfil our wider business ambitions now and in the future. The new folder-gluer has delivered more than we anticipated in terms of running speed and efficiency savings, and we are thrilled with the results of this investment.”
