PARIS, Nov. 5, 2019 (Press Release) -In order to accompany growth in demand from brands for boxes and cards for their samples, Carestia Arcade Beauty is consolidating its expertise in catering to the needs of the market and upgrading its equipment. Its most recent investment is in a new-generation BOBST folder-gluer machine. This acquisition highlights a reinforced partnership between the two companies.
Printing, folding, gluing, precision cutting, detection of metallic areas… Carestia’s factory is pushing the boundaries of its expertise when it comes to cardboard cases for samples and mini-products. As such, it is investing in machinery to offer new technical capabilities, better flexibility and winning competitiveness for small, medium and large production runs.
A new machine dedicated to performance
Thanks to its long-term partnership with supplier BOBST, Carestia recently welcomed an EXPERTFOLD 50 folder-gluer suitable for any size of box. This new-generation machine offers a broad range of benefits: flexibility, versatility, production speed, precision…its specificities make it an ideal solution for premium cosmetics and fragrances. It guarantees fast production of high-quality containers inspected thanks to dedicated tooling.
“Our collaboration with Carestia is based on both strategic and technical support. Since the early years of the 21st century, we have sold several Autoplatine® diecutters, hot foil printers and folder-gluers to Carestia,” says Emilio Corti, Head of Sales of Business Unit Sheet-fed.
“We are pleased that the BOBST brand is able to accompany us to boost our expansion in cardboard boxes. We hope this new machine will help us to conquer new markets, well beyond perfumery and cosmetics (like accessories, fine foods, wines and spirits),” explains Carestia Director Marie-Hélène Marcelli.
An ecological advantage
With this new investment, Carestia opted for the Carbon Neutral certification created by BOBST to invest in sustainability projects with NGO Myclimate. Thanks to this initiative, carbon dioxide emissions generated by the production and transportation of the machine are offset by a sum that is transferred to a climate investment fund.
