Comexi is a supplier of machinery and services to the flexible packaging converting industry, with a degree of specialization in each of its product lines: flexographic presses (Comexi brand), solvent and solventless lamination and coating (Nexus Comexi brand), slitting and rewinding (Proslit brand) and logistics and environmental management for its industry (Enviroxi brand).

History[edit]

In the life of Comexi Group, the spaces are specific ones and they are important and enable us to explain the story of the company at four different moments in time: Carrer Taquígraf Martí in the Vista Alegre district (1954–1957) was its origin; Plaça Balmes in Santa Eugènia de Ter (1957–1961) was its consolidation;

Avinguda Sant Narcís in the Sant Narcís district and the plant in Carretera Barcelona (1982–1998) were its expansion; the plant in Riudellots de la Selva in the industrial estate Polingesa1 (from 1998) represents the internationalisation of the brand names and a multinational culture. The Comexi Group factory in Brazil (2002) is a clear example of this, the flagship of the new times.

Environment-friendly efforts[edit]

Avoiding the use of solvents, with the consequent environmental advantages of eliminating these emissions to the atmosphere, is a mean to turn the packaging converting and printing process into a sustainable one. Comexi Group is dedicating a big R&D effort to this, developing alternative technologies for that purpose.

The flexographic electron beam curing ink printing process is not only allowing flexible packaging converters the use of a fully environmentally friendly technology, but also provides quality advantages.

Manel Xifra & Boada Awards[edit]

Comexi Group created the Manel Xifra & Boada Awards[3] to recognize engineering as a diffused, consolidated and distinct profession. They are established in 3 categories: Best Professional Career, Transmission of Scientific and Technical Knowledge,[4] and the Best Final University Project acknowledgment given by the Polytechnic Superior School of the UdG.

Headquarters[edit]

In 1999, Comexi Group decided to modernise its facilities and establish a new site for the group’s headquarters. It purchased over 100,000 square metres of land for this purpose in Riudellots de la Selva, just six kilometres from Girona (Spain). Riudellots, with its new airport now consolidated, has become one of the fastest-growing hubs of technology and business growth in Europe.
