(PresseBox) (Würzburg, ) Bangladesh’s first Rapida 106 will be delivered at the end of August.

The seven-colour Rapida 106 with coater and UV kit will soon ensure that the company can target new markets.

NRG is one of Bangladesh’s largest textile manufacturers and has had its own printing company with 175 staff and a head office in Dhaka since 2007. The Rapida 106 will be installed in the printing plant in Jamirdia. The new press will be equipped with a cardboard and plastics package and will be raised by 450mm. Print quality will be controlled via ErgoTronic ColorDrive and LogoTronic Professional links pre-press and MIS. NRG Printing & Packaging produces food packaging and folding carton for the cosmetic industry and pharmaceutical products.

Customers include international brand names, such as Nestlé and Unilever. The new press is expected to produce print products, which previously were imported from India, directly in Bangladesh.
