Issuing company's press release
Switzerland, Mexico-BOURQUIN is a company that successfully keeps pace with the times and develops continuously. The Swiss-based company started as a straw husk manufacturer in the 19th century and then opened a corrugated cardboard factory in the early 20th century. Today, it is a comprehensive packaging solutions provider serving 15,000 customers in the e-commerce, pharmaceutical, medical technology, wine, brewing, industrial and graphics sectors.
BOBST also believes in the theory of evolution. The company provides equipment and services to BOURQUIN and other packaging and label manufacturers in the folding carton, corrugated cardboard and flexible materials industries around the world. BOBST prides itself on staying ahead of the latest trends in packaging by listening to customers, understanding their needs and being able to propose solutions with the highest performance.
This similarity of company philosophy explains why BOURQUIN and BOBST have established such a long-term and successful partnership. As early as 1972, BOURQUIN purchased the first BOBST machine-BOBST Autoplaten SPO 1575 EEG and two-color Flexo 1575. Since then, the two companies have maintained a strong relationship based on mutual trust and understanding.
“The connection between our two companies is not just a simple customer-supplier relationship,” explains Luis Manuel Luis, production manager at the BOURQUIN Couvet plant. "We are partners. Bobst listens to our voices; they understand our needs and do their best to find feasible tailored solutions. Just like we do for our customers."
BOURQUIN is known for its product quality and flexibility. It pays attention to the rapid changes in consumer habits and has strong adaptability. Therefore, multifunctional machines that can help companies achieve high productivity and extremely short set-up times are very attractive.
Take Bobst’s SPEEDPACK as an example. SPEEDPACK is a fully automatic packaging machine that can bundle a variety of packaging box formats and types. The modularity and productivity of SPEEDPACK make it the perfect packaging machine for any multi-point folding and bonding production line. For BOURQUIN, it is the perfect complement to the BOBST MASTERFOLD 230 A4 folder-gluer.
"For many years, we have been waiting for machines like SPEEDPACK because we are experts in folding and gluing," Luis Manuel Luis said. "In this broad field, we need a simple, versatile, reliable and fast machine to reduce the workload when delivering the folder-gluer. We also need a solution to increase the productivity of our production line regardless of the type of packaging , Format and even the type of corrugated cardboard. SPEEDPACK checked each box."
SPEEDPACK is an innovative automatic packaging machine for corrugated paper packaging, which allows users to give full play to the potential of the BOBST folding and gluing production line. With as many batches as possible per hour and very short set-up time, it greatly improves productivity.
The packaging machine gently picks up the boxes as they leave the folder-gluer and batches them in exactly the right way-fast and reliable, while maintaining the quality of the boxes. It has exceptionally smooth operation, smallest footprint, best ergonomic design and excellent accessibility, making the set-up time of repeated orders negligible. All this means that this powerful packaging machine can handle almost any type of box while maintaining an impeccable quality level.
"SPEEDPACK not only perfectly met all our expectations, but we also cooperated very well with BOBST during the installation and setup phase," said Luis Manuel Luis. "We have seen all the benefits-its reliability, flexibility, ease of use, very short set-up time and very high productivity applicable to all types of boxes. We have also reduced the difficulty of our employees. This is a Significant advantage, especially for large format packaging and double groove types."
This is the latest example of the successful evolution of BOURQUIN. With the help of BOBST's continuous innovation, the company will continue to develop to meet the needs of future customers.
"Like BOBST, we always focus on the future," Luis Manuel Luiz said. "There is always a way to improve, and through our special partnership, we look forward to finding ways to further advance folding and gluing in the future."
