OMET Suzhou Mechanical Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Italian company OMET Srl was founded in 2007 and is in charge for the sale of both printing presses and tissue converting machines in the territory of China, as well as a large production department dedicated to OMET systems in motion.
Since 2012 the Chinese plant has its own Printing Technology Center with presses on display.
The Technology Center and Showroom is strategic to the development of the relationship with customers and above all offers the possibility to show the machines at work by giving the clients an intuitive (and active!) grasp of the equipment potential. In OMET Suzhou technology centre work full time two skilled engineers that were trained in Italy.
The Center is about 200 square meters and has presently on display one XFlex X2 370, which has been sold already to Yanfeng Plastic Packing Co. Ltd., China. One XFlex X4 370 mm with 12 colours, 2 screen, 2 cold foil and 2 rewinders is on its way to China and is scheduled to arrive within February 2013.
OMET Suzhou is a vital reality, perfectly integrated in the Chinese printing market and with great possibilities of expansion. China printing industry, which held a 9,16% of the global output in 2011, develops rapidly as a whole with the packaging and decoration sector holding the largest proportion - up to 33.3% - and the best growth rate.
In November 2012 an Open House was held with more than 50 representatives from 25 companies including present and potential customers. The general feeling was that OMET presses are a true response to the present market requests and all the delegates showed a lot of interest in OMET innovation. The flexibility on all types of materials and their sturdy construction were particularly appreciated.
A new Open House will be organized as soon as possible with the arrival of the next press to China.
