The supplier said the footfall resulted in sales at the show exceeding both expectations and the total recorded at Bobst’s record breaking Drupa four years ago.
Buyers are said to have shown particularly strong interest in the new M6 Digital Flexo press, as well as in mid- and high-range converting for sheet-fed carton manufacture and in services such as online troubleshooting.
Bobst said its solutions at Drupa addressed the concerns visitors expressed regarding how to profitably manufacture when run lengths are constantly reducing and labour costs increasing.
Drupa 2016 also offered an opportunity for Bobst to celebrate its 125th anniversary with customers from all over the world.
Jean-Pascal Bobst, chief executive, Bobst, said: “The industries we serve today are searching for drastic productivity improvement through innovations, services and people relationships. Moreover, the digitalization of the packaging supply chain is paving the way for the future. This year´s Drupa has again been a great platform for us to demonstrate that we deliver the right solutions for our customers´ applications – be they folding carton, flexible material, labels or corrugated board.”
