I am pleased to inform that we have inaugurated Fully Automatic Robotic Laser Engraving Line at our Noida facility in technical collaboration with M/s. Think Lab, Japan. This has reduced the cumbersome process of manufacturing rotogravure printing cylinders to a single operator job while tremendously increasing both precision of job and the efficiency.”

“In the month of June 2016 we exhibited at the most celebrated event of the print and cross media solution industry ‘Drupa’ at Dusseldorf, Germany. The response has been overwhelming with a lot of interest by global clientele in the end-to-end flexible packaging solutions offered by Uflex. At the event, we announced technological collaboration with Comiflex SRL Italy for manufacturing geared and gearless C.I. Flexo Printing Machines at our Engineering Plant in India under a Technology Transfer Agreement with the latter.”

“I am glad to share that we have also extended our existing alliance with Wave Front Technology Inc. to manufacture Fresnel lens packaging film at our manufacturing plant in Poland to cater to European and CIS countries. ”

“That said, the quarters lying ahead behold promising business prospects for your company and together we will cross several momentous milestones.”

Further upholding its commitment towards Mother Nature, Uflex has commenced interventions towards Natural Resource Conservation and Optimization of Ecosystem in two villages of Gautam Buddha Nagar District.
