Multiflex Polybags is one of the leading flexible packaging producers of labels, pouches and polybags. The Chennai-based company prints a variety of multicolour images, graphics and designs on all types of LLDPE, HMHDPE, PP, BOPP, BOPA, CPP and polyester films.

The Asian Packaging Excellence Awards night was held in Bangkok in Thailand. It was followed by a one-day annual Shift 22 Label & Packaging conference which was sponsored by the publisher Print Innovations Asia. The event’s theme was: Let's talk about the state of our packaging industry post-pandemic.

The awards dinner showcased quality packaging companies who were awarded gold, silver and bronze awards in the 2022 competition. The awards included 19 categories covering all print processes; including flexography - broken into wide web, mid web and narrow web;  which further included a number of sub-categories based on the substrate and reverse printing.

Multiflex Polybags received a gold medal in the narrow-web film flexo category, along with two bronze awards in the wide-web and mid-web flexo categories. Prepress and photopolymer plates were prepared by Multiflex’s pre-press partner, VeePee Graphics India. 

Rajendra Mehta, director, Multiflex Polybags, has quoted in the past that their Soma press, "is a must-have for every flexible packaging printer and converter, and it is power-packed in a compact space that provides us with an extra armour in our arsenal.” “The machine is very versatile in terms of material handling and enables quick job changeovers for shorter runs,” he added.

Multiflex Polybags installed its eight-colour Soma Optima CI flexo press in March, 2021. “The successful installation of a Soma press at Multiflex, during the second wave of the pandemic, was an excellent achievement,” said Suhas Kulkarni, Soma, area sales manager. 

“We are impressed with the designs Multiflex Polybags has printed on their Soma press. We are proud of the awards they have rightfully received. The designs are representative of the fine work that can be executed on the presses,” Kulkarni concluded
