Sigoplast, a French converter specializing in the design of plastic packaging, has strongly recovered itself after a fire which completely destroyed its facilities in Saint Pal de Mons, in 2017. The site is also now the home of new Comexi printing and converting systems.

After two years, Sigoplast has now inaugurated the new factory, celebrating the event with local government officials, as well as Comexi representatives, customers and other partners.

The new plant covers about 55,000 sq ft, about 10,000 sq ft larger than the previous facility, and has invested its entire machinery portfolio with Comexi state-of-the-art technology. The facility began operating in October 2018 with the arrival of the first employees. Since the beginning of this year, its production has progressively increased. 

“From Comexi we congratulate Sigoplast on the new facilities, and we hope that they will return to normal in terms of production as soon as possible,” explains Olivier Gibert, area mgr.-France. The company has acquired two flexo presses: a new Comexi F2 MC and a Comexi F2 MB. Sigoplast has also invested in integrating a Comexi S2 DT slitter/rewinder with 4 Laser for micro and macro perforations.
