Indonesia firm provide "Green Printing" at the highest quality level with Two Genius 52UVs

Monday, August 30, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Within the Asia-Pacific growth region, the Indonesian market is also developing in a very satisfactory way for KBA-MetroPrint. Thus the Sansico Group, a market leader for packaging and paper products based in Jakarta, has successfully been using two waterless Genius 52 UV printing machines from KBA-MetroPrint in production for some time at PT Printec, one of its two production plants in Cikarang.

The machines are used mainly to make plastic packaging for a prestigious international toy manufacturer and they underline the quality conscious, environmentally and cost-effective investment policy of the Sansico group.

Attractive performance package creates the basis for trust
Sansico Director Rudy Ghozali: "In the past, we worked with sheet offset machines from other manufacturers at PT Printec. However, the market in Indonesia has changed a great deal. Shortly after buying the innovative Genius 52 UV, we were so impressed by it that we acquired another identical machine only a few months later.  The package of price, performance, delivery, setup times and automation was right with both Genius 52UV machines. The efficient training of our personnel does not represent a problem either, given the numerous customer testimonials from KBA-MetroPrint in Indonesia."

"As we have known since successfully commissioning the two Genius 52 UV machines, KBA-MetroPrint, with its internationally known, waterless printing compact machines in A3 format offers attractive high-tech solutions in the field of "Green Printing". With these machines, characterised by excellent performance, reliability and ease of use, we feel ideally positioned for printing on plastic and other non-absorbent substrates. These expensive and valuable materials call for very short setup times and less paper waste, and the Genius 52 UV meets these requirements perfectly. This is all the more important as top clients place extremely high demands in terms of quality and delivery times. We will continue to monitor the technological development very closely and will be in discussion with KBA-MetroPrint again regarding any further investments."

Steep growth curve with international success
Sansico began as a local producer and has developed into an internationally successful group for packaging and paper products. Of the current five production facilities, four are in Greater Jakarta and one in Foshan in China (Guangdong). The locations employ a variety of printing processes including offset, flexo and gravure, and - step by step - are approaching a completely digitised workflow. Each plant focuses on specific market areas, thus achieving high customer proximity and service quality. Its most important customers include leading industrial companies and retail chains such as Target, American Greetings, Nestle, Coca Cola, Costco and Wal-Mart. Most turnover is gained from exporting to the main markets of the USA and Europe.

Close cooperation
Sansico has been developing a very close relationship to the famous toy manufacturer for two decades. Thanks to this partnership, the Sansico Group has succeeded in achieving the best possible production and management standards. These are oriented towards customer needs and provide a basis for continuous development.
