Potential and opportunities on Africas fastest growing economy
Recently the Flexofit GmbH held their first Flexofit Ethiopia Seminar in Addis Ababa.
Currently there is a shortage of materials, devices and technology in the country as well as learned professionals that handle machines and inks. Most packaging that is currently done in the country is facilitated with imported ready-made packaging.
Ethiopia had a growth rate of annual average of 9.7% in the last three years.
At the seminar, the local packaging industry had the chance to meet with international industry experts from Esko, DuPont, Chespa, Renzmann and Windmöller&Hölscher.
The presentations covered advancements in prepress, flexo printing plates, inks, cleaning and recovery systems as well as flexo printing equipment, extruders and packaging technologies.
