A year-and-a-half after investing in Fujifilm’s Flenex FW plate technology, Spanish printer, Adhesivas Ibi has recorded marked improvement in its overall print production and quality, as well as seeing significant time and cost savings. Located in the town of Ibi, Alicante, Adhesivas Ibi specialises in adhesive labels for bottled wine, spirits, oil and vinegar. Founded in 1979 by current owner and manager, José Luís Iváñez, Adhesivas Ibi turns over between €5 million and €5.5 million annually. With a staff count of 40, the company combines the latest technologies with a skilled creative team to offer a wide range of bespoke finishes, giving each of its customers a unique, creative proposal to dress their products.
José Luís Iváñez, Owner and Manager of Adhesivas Ibi:
“Bottled products require labels that attract attention and accurately promote the product. Customer requirements have evolved over time, and Adhesivas Ibi has adapted to the changes and the demands of its customers. Our present infrastructure has allowed us to incorporate a wide range of printing services, including serigraphy, flexography, offset and digital.”
“We now use Flenex for fifty per cent of our flexography plate production,” Iváñez continues “Its stability and consistency throughout the production and printing process means we are able to supply our customers with the very high quality products they have come to expect from us. A year and a half on from our initial investment, we remain very impressed with the durability of the plates, and the quality of the printed products we can deliver with them.
We’ve seen reductions in overall production and processing times, which combined with the added durability we get from the Flenex plates, means we can keep providing the same prints over a much longer period of time, all the while making sure we are getting the most out of our printing presses.”
