Founded in Debrecen in 1952, the Hungarian folding carton manufacturer Kartonpack Dobozipari Nyrt. (Kartonpack) currently employs over 100 staff. With its 70 years of experience in the printing and packaging industry, Kartonpack is one of Hungary’s leading packaging printers. Working in close collaboration with its customers and over 200 suppliers, the company makes packaging for local and multinational pharmaceutical businesses, the cosmetics sector, and the food industry. Kartonpack’s services cover the entire value chain – from structural and graphic design, printing, and die cutting all the way through to the finished folding carton. The company exports its products to Austria, Belgium, Germany, Romania, and Russia.
Even though Hungary’s economy has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kartonpack decided to invest in the new Speedmaster CX 104 from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) as a pilot user, with a view to further boosting the efficiency of its production processes. The market’s response to this sign of strength and confidence has been entirely positive, and the company reports that it has been able to adjust capacities in recent months and boost volumes.
Kartonpack President and CEO Dr. Sándor Uszkay-Boiskó explains the motivation behind this investment decision as follows: “The Speedmaster CX 104 was installed as part of a strategic collaboration. Only one other European print shop had this opportunity, something we are extremely proud about. Taking into account our job structure, we’ve found that the new Speedmaster CX 104 fully meets our current and future expectations regarding flexibility, reliability, and quality. We’ve been particularly impressed by the system’s intelligent control concept and the coating unit’s high performance levels.”
