  • Packaging printer has built a new facility in Port Qasim
  • Seven-colour Rapida 106 with double coating
  • Production for leading brand names

Rehmpack, one of the largest packaging printers in Pakistan, has built a new facility covering almost 18,600 m2 (200,000 sq.ft.) in the Port Qasim Industrial Area, one of the two seaports in Karachi. The facility is set to be operational with new, high-performance sheetfed offset technology by mid-2018.

Rehmpack will be commissioning a new Rapida 106 with double coating by mid-2018. In the picture (left to right), seated: Bhupinder Sethi, Koenig & Bauer, and Anis Ahmed Barry, CEO Rehmpack; standing: Zia Anis Barry and Atif Anis Barry, both directors of Rehmpack (1)

The press chosen by Rehmpack is a seven-colour Rapida 106 in a double-coater configuration for UV and conventional printing. With its 11 printing and finishing units, it will be the company’s first Rapida press. “When making our decision, we paid particular attention to efficient, future-oriented technologies and high print quality,” says director Atif Anis Barry. The choice is thus no surprise, since Koenig & Bauer is market leader in sheetfed offset presses for packaging applications. The double coating process, furthermore, will help to expand the product portfolio in respect of high-quality finishing.

To date, Rehmpack has worked with five- and six-colour sheetfed presses with single inline coating units. Further processing is handled on modern die-cutting and folding carton gluing machines, while narrow-web flexo machinery serves a separate labelling division. Rehmpack also produces high quality PE films on a state-of-the-art extrusion line.

Rehmpack first entered the packaging printing market some 45 years ago. A clear focus is placed on food packaging. Accordingly, the company is certified in accordance with all the important food safety regulations such as HACCP and ISO 22000.

The list of customers today features many leading brand names, such as Procter & Gamble, GSK, Colgate-Palmolive, Mondelez, Coca Cola, English Biscuits, Continental Biscuits, National Foods, Tapal Tea and many front‑line local companies. The company has in the meantime grown to 250 employees. And there can be no doubt that the new production facility, which was designed by one of Pakistan's top architects, will herald the next successful stage in Rehmpack’s development.
