Giovanni Bettini, Sales & Marketing Director for MHI Europe, has confirmed the company recently won an order for an EVOL 100 flexo folder gluer for DS Smith Benelux. The machine, which will be fitted with the new MHI MPF pre-feeder, will be delivered to DS Smith’s plant in Buggenhout.
“We are delighted that DS Smith, one of the world’s largest corrugated packaging producers, has placed its faith in MHI once more,” says Bettini. “Antoine Renaer, Mathijs VanCompernolle and the team at DS Smith Benelux have been really impressed with the machine already running at the facility in Eerbeek and had no hesitation in placing the order with us for the machine to go to Buggenhout. The technical team at DS Smith Benelux sited the quality of the boxes being produced at such high speeds as one of the reasons for placing the order for another four colour EVOL 100.”
Bettini concludes, “This new machine for Buggenhout, which will include our new high-speed pre-feeder, will be the third EVOL casemaker within DS Smith Group, testament to its build quality and reliability. The MPF pre-feeder will be the second of its type in DS Smith; the first one is being installed on the EVOL 100 at Eerbeek over the coming months.”
