Just a few years ago, Polirom Packaging in Iasi/Romania was producing with printing presses from a wide variety of manufacturers. Today the picture has completely changed. In addition to a Rapida 105, the company has two Rapida 76s with five and six inking units and coating equipment. The latest went into production just a few weeks ago. There are also two Omega Allpro 55 folder gluers. Within six years, the packaging manufacturer has continuously invested in today’s modern equipment.
Polirom is a privately held group of companies that was founded in 1992. The first activities were in publishing. Later, the production of packaging for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries was started. Today, Polirom Packaging, Editura Polirom and Radio Hit belong to the group of companies.
Polirom Packaging mainly produces secondary packaging for the pharmaceutical industry made of paper and cardboard. The main products are one, two and three-point folding boxes, leaflets, self-adhesive labels – including highly finished products, for example on aluminium foil. The capacity is over 350 million folding boxes and 250 million leaflets per year. The 100 employees process 300 tons of printing material every month. With the new technology, further growth is now possible.
Vlad Boiciuc, IT & technical manager at Polirom Packaging, is delighted with what has been achieved: “The advice and support when purchasing and commissioning the presses was very important to us and we look forward to further growth with the investment.”
